Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festivals

On the 5th day of the 5th month in the Chinese Lunar calendar, Hong Kong celebrates the Tuen Ng Festival, or the Dragon Boat Festival. These year’s dragon boat races kick off with the Stanley Dragon Boat Races on June 19, followed by the HK International Races on June 23 and 24. Aside from these, there are smaller, local races, but if you’re in Hong Kong during these period, try to catch these two events and witness how dragon boating, an exercise originally linked to the Tuen Ng Chinese festival and the fishermen of the region, has now become an international sport.
