I like how Hong Kong Tourism Board promotes their country with lots of festivals, events and different sights for every month and season, for this whole month of October 2012, Hong Kong will be a whole month of heart pounding of fun, spooky encounters and give some spook-tacular experience as they host another round of Halloween festival. Did you know that Hong Kong is now the capital of Halloween in Asia,because all cities and theme parks are inline together for a month long Halloween Treats. Hong Kong is one of the best and top destination for tourist, and according to Hong Kong Tourism board that the country welcomes already around 4 million tourist since July 2012 and for this month, it will attract more tourist because of their new festival for October 2012.
There will be lots of attractions in Hong Kong, having their own Halloween twists, like there will be spooky events at the Lan Kwai Fong and Avenue of the Stars, expect some restaurants that will serve Halloween theme foods, Disneyland in Halloween theme celebration, SCREAMS Halloween attraction at Madam Tussauds, Halloween in Ocean Park and many more.
“This year, Hong Kong Halloween Treats presents yet another round of endless merriment to locals and tourists alike. Hong Kong’s best-loved attractions like Hong Kong Disneyland, Ocean Park Hong Kong and Madame Tussauds Hong Kong have lined up exciting programmes to thrill and amaze visitors, providing them with a one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found in the Asia’s World City.
“Numerous street celebrations, masquerade balls, and costume parties are also held in various areas such as Lan Kwai Fong and Avenue of the Stars, among others. Restaurants and food outlets also offer tempting Halloween-themed treats that families and friends can enjoy,” -- Mr Simon Wong, HKTB Regional Director for Southeast Asia
Here in the Philippines, as one of the targeted tourist for Hong Kong, we got a taste of the Halloween Treats in a mall in Makati City and there we saw the giant 3D painting poster, take a photo of it, tweet it and you can win a free trip to HK courtesy of HKTB and Cebu Pacific. They have a local partnership with Cebu Pacific for this event and flights are available everyday going from Manila to Hong Kong.
