Halloween Hong Kong Style

Despite Hong Kong having no cultural traditions associated with Halloween, each year the holiday is growing more and more popular.

You still won’t find much trick-or-treating done here due to the impracticability of everyone living in apartments (although some malls are starting to offer trick-or-treating) but you will find many fun-filled Halloween events throughout the city.

It’s Halloween here in Hong Kong, and
here are the best events to check out
