After years of watching Hong Kong's Chinese New Year Flower Market on TV, we finally got to be part of it physically this year. It was a very awesome experience as the atmosphere definitely helped hiked the excitement of the arrival of the Rabbit New Year. There were numerous flower markets all over Hong Kong and we were honored to visit 3 different ones in a span of two days (or should I say nights) as we only arrived at the flower market after midnight.
Look at the variety of flowers available for sale!
