lanterns-by-the-harbor-INLINEIt is one week away from Mid Autumn Festival! Have you planned what to do for the long weekend? Why not start off with an open top bus tour around Hong Kong?

Our bus ride will start from HKU Residential Colleges, through Central, Wan Chai then crossing the harbor to Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok and back again to HK Island, ending at Victoria Park. This is the only open-top bus ride covering HK Island and Kowloon!

At our destination, in Victoria Park, there is also the amazing annual Lantern Wonderland, Mid Autumn Market and the Fire Dragon. Try out local specialty snacks and sample the atmospheric festivity!
