This year is the first time where fireworks will be launched from both sea and land, ending in a dramatic display over the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre. Arrive early to avoid the crowds and secure your prime position to be illuminated – check out a few of our fave (free!) spots to see the fireworks here.

When: 31 December, midnight (show lasts for 8 minutes)
Where: Hong Kong Harbour
How much: It’s free!
