If you visit Hong Kong, you should take a tour in Sai Ying Pun because you will be spoiled by the beauty of Street Art around every corner. Don't forget to take photos while you make your way through Art Lane because of the beautiful wall art and murals that adorn the buildings in the lane. It is well-known for its murals, which include unique and different designs.

You can also visit the rustic industrial buildings in Wong Chuk Hang. Then take a photo of Sheung Wan's colorful stairs. Hong Kong truly is an art-rich city.

HKwalls Street Art Festival

If you are a fan of art murals, you should visit Hong Kong for the HKwalls Street Art Festival. The HKwalls Street Art Festival invites international and local artists to showcase their creative talents in turning the walls of Hong Kong into works of art. There are multiple locations where you can see these murals, and there are even guided tours where you can learn more about the stories behind the murals. You can find the map of the murals here!

Art Basel should be on your bucket list for all art enthusiasts!


Cantonese Opera in Yau Ma Tei Theatre

Your trip to cultural Hong Kong is incomplete if you haven't seen a Cantonese Opera performance. In Hong Kong, there are several theaters that often perform Cantonese Opera performances, which certainly present cultural values through the stories acted out by the actors. The distinctive background music, as well as the dialogue between each character, will definitely amaze you.

If you want to experience the authenticity and depth of Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong, go to the Yau Ma Tei theater, which has been in operation since 1930! The building designs, together with the authenticity of the structure, create the deep impact of the stories performed at the Cantonese Opera.


Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance

The Tai Hang Fire Dance is another remarkable and extraordinary celebration in Hong Kong. This festival, which is held every Mid-Autumn, features a dance in a very majestic and beautiful dragon costume and is usually performed by 300 performers. What's even cooler is that this festival is accompanied by very lively playing of musical instruments in the form of gongs and drums. Held over 3 nights, this festival usually takes place around the streets of Hong Kong.

The beauty and thrill of this celebration will leave you speechless. The "dragon" is frequently held by the performers and made to appear to be dancing with up-and-down movements. The dragon is constructed of fabric with a brightly colored design. Anyway, this event is also free, so anyone can come and enjoy the show.

This dragon dance is believed to be a symbol to ward off the devil in local culture. Previously, it was also an ancestor offering ceremony. However, you can now enjoy the festival as a joyous occasion. Tai Hang Dance has been designated as a national intangible cultural treasure. Isn't that incredible?


Spring Lantern Festival

Have you ever seen the beauty of the lantern festival? In fact, the lantern festival is one of the main traditions of Chinese culture. In Hong Kong, the lantern festival is held every spring. This festival, which has been held since over 2000 years ago, marks the end of Chinese New Year celebrations.

You will see thousands of lanterns being flown gracefully into the sky. The perfect addition to the magnificent moments when visiting Hong Kong.There are also some performances that you can see there. However, the lantern itself will usually be displayed for a week. If you want to see this festival, visit Hong Kong in February during the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations. Usually, this outdoor festival is held in Tsim Sha Tsui, next to Victoria Harbour.
