The One With Lunar New Year Market – Flower Galore In Hong Kong

It’s my sixth year living in Hong Kong, however it my first time going to the Lunar New Year market at Victoria Park, more commonly known as the “flower market”. I was planning to do a little CNY shopping and so was not at all prepared for the onslaught of humanity all desperate for flowers and festive goods.

Did the entire Hong Kong descend to the park that night? It was hordes of people trawling up and down several one-way lanes, often at snail pace. Budding young entrepreneurs from schools and universities competed with seasoned businessmen for festive dollars eager to be spent.

We braved the crowd and got what we wanted – flowers. It took us more than two hours but the results were worth it. The crowd was mad – and I heard it’s even worst last night as it was the last night and everything has to go – but I would go again.
