Pack a picnic basket filled with special treats (not to mention a bottle of bubbly for mom and dad) and go to Tamar Park. It’s a great spot to catch the fireworks and offers spectacular views of the city at night, not to mention a patch of grass to roll around. Make sure you get there early, though, because it fills up by around 10:30pm. And be sure to bring some extra treats to share so you can make friends with your fellow revelers.

Take the Star Ferry over en masse with the rest of Hong Kong’s partygoers to the Avenue of The Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui. Bring along some whistles, bells, and horns to make lots of noise as you and your loved ones bid adieu to 2018. It’s a super-packed affair, but crowd control is a forte here in Hong Kong so expect well-mannered queues all along Victoria Harbour and police directing traffic to the Star Ferry and MTR before and after the festivities. Get there early and park you and your little ones on the steps of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre for front-row seats to the fireworks at midnight.
Do something different and unique this New Yeats and get the best view of the fireworks from right on the water! What child wouldn't love a good boat ride with soaring fireworks flying the in the sky? Watertours and Harbour Cruise – Bauhinia both offer New Year’s Eve Countdown cruises, with options for buffet dinners or free flow packages (for the adults to toast). A great option for when you wish to celebrate with a group. You can’t get closer to the action than this!
