BEST PLACES TO WATCH THE NATIONAL DAY FIREWORKS

Hong Kong is celebrating its National Day on 1st October. Not like all Hong Kongers' are very patriotic citizens but we all love the day off, the fireworks, the excuse to dine fine and party! On that night, there will be fireworks in Victoria Harbor at 9pm. Hiphongkong has chosen several interesting spots for you to enjoy the special occasion.

BLT - Best Value for Money

This internationally famous steak house right next to the Star Ferry Pier, has an excellent view of Hong Kong Island. It is doing dinner buffet ($688/head) on National Day. There will be an oyster bar, an array of appetizers, salads, sides, and desserts. Try their signature Grilled Steaks and BLT Sauce Lemon Rosemary Chicken. For a regular meal's price you get a big feast and an excellent spot to see the fireworks!

AQUA - All Time Favorite

Aqua on the 29/F and 30/F of One Peking Road in TST probably has the best view of the Victoria Harbor and the skyline of Hong Kong Island in town. It's the all-time-favorite for watching the fireworks as their seating almost guarantees an uninterrupted view from every table. On the National day they will serve a six course dinner at $1388/person ($788/head for child), which will feature Japanese and Italian cuisines.

IFC ROOFTOP - Budget Viewers

Thanks to the public space everyone can hangout at the IFC rooftop without spending a buck in the bars and restaurants in the mall. Bring your 7-11 beers, get some City Super take-aways, grab a seat at the loungy IFC rooftop! Drink wines from the bottle while enjoying the fireworks among the not-too-crazily-packed crowd! But I should warn you - you get what you (do not have to) pay for! So on that night you should probably "book the table" early otherwise you might not be able to see a thing!
