“Among cities in Asia, Hong Kong is one of those with the most buoyant Halloween ambience, with a wide range of celebrations and unique experiences. Riding on the Government’s launch of the ‘Night Vibes Hong Kong’ campaign and spending offers, the HKTB is leveraging the festival to further strengthen the celebratory ambience by putting up jovial decor city-wide, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the fun experience as soon as they set foot in town, while the local public also enjoy the celebrations. We are grateful for the staunch support from our trade partners as we work together to enrich the visitor experience with numerous festivities in town,” says Dane Cheng, HKTB Executive Director.

Spirits making exclusive appearances at MTR stations

The statement adds that a set of 10 adorable little spirits, each designed with elements inspired by authentic local features or landmarks in their respective areas, will make their debut at 10 MTR stations starting on today. The stations include Central, Admiralty, Ocean Park, Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, East Tsim Sha Tsui, Sham Shui Po, Sunny Bay and Tung Chung, surprising passengers with different festive poses. 

The statement adds that MTR’s Admiralty and Causeway Bay stations will be transformed into Halloween-themed stations. Pumpkin-themed decorations will adorn the station lobbies, platform floors, stairs, escalators, walls, entrances and other areas to greet visitors, or encourage city dwellers to slow down, take a snapshot and get lost in the festive ambience in the bustling stations. Passengers may also find the decorations in the Central, Wan Chai and Tsim Sha Tsui stations.

Spooky Transformation of Land and Sea Sightseeing Transportation

For visitors looking to experience the vibrant side of Hong Kong and the night vibes of the charming Victoria Harbour during Halloween, they can opt for the sightseeing bus, the Star Ferry and the Dukling junk boat, dressed up in colourful Halloween attire, and embark on a pleasant journey across Hong Kong Island and Kowloon effortlessly, admiring the stunning views of Victoria Harbour with a special festive twist. Lingering over the Central Pier will be a giant laughing pumpkin designed by the HKTB, adds the statement.

Spirited Decorations Adorning Six Tourist Hot Spots 

The statement adds that colourful and gleeful pumpkins, spirits, bats, spiders and candies in the form of neon lights, marquees and LED art installations will also take over tourist hot spots, including the Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard, the Avenue of Stars, Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui, Lee Tung Avenue in Wan Chai, the Mid-Levels Escalator in Central, and the bus stop outside the Sogo Department Store in Causeway Bay starting today, creating an extra level of Halloween aura and party ambience in the city. 

Eight major shopping malls and attractions in the city will be giving out limited-edition Halloween souvenirs to visitors and the public from October 27 to 31, in conjunction with various festive activities organised by the malls.
