Hi 👋 Willing to travel somewhere new? Well, Hong Kong is the best place to go! The Mid - Autumn (Moon) festival celebrates the moon due to an old Chinese story. This year it will be on the 17th of September. Hong Kong is transformed into a show of sound, colour and light. Lanterns are everywhere, from ancient style, modern and paper. Get to experience this unique festival at the start of Autumn and try mooncakes! We will spend a week before the actual day since decorations are up early and we will go to carnivals. We will be on a quest to know more about Chinese culture and the story of this festive month. From Hong Kong's main landmarks of flashing buildings to its museums and the beautiful autumn nature vibes of the city. I will be happy to escort you on an adventurous ride there and have loads of fun and more to tell!!🤩 Feel free to contact me at any time and I will surely let you know more.🎋🎑
