Our spotlight on Hong Kong continues with a look at the city’s many and varied attractions, which you can visit with ease via Cathay Pacific’s non-stop flights from Manchester airport. Hong Kong offers something to do all year round – from traditional cultural celebrations to festivals, sporting occasions and plenty more besides. Hong Kong’s traditional Dragon Boat Carnival (pictured, 3-5 Jul) has been a fixture on the calendar since 1976 – with 5,000 people representing 10 countries and regions in last year’s competition – while Chinese New Year – held in January or February – is a huge festival of colour. For a more modern twist, check out Clockenflap (dates TBA), Hong Kong’s festival of music and arts – which featured Chvrches, Mogwai, The Flaming Lips and Rudimental in 2014. For the foodies out there, meanwhile, Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival (Oct/Nov) is an annual month of indulgence – its four-day opening party alone attracting 180,000 visitors each year. With hundreds more events and attractions on Hong Kong’s annual calendar, it’s never been a better time to book a visit. Try Cathay Pacific, which flies non-stop from Manchester four times a week with return fares to Hong Kong start from £649, in economy, £1,249, in Premium Economy and £3,339 in business class. Visit the website below for more information – plus enter here for a chance to win a trip for two to Hong Kong for three nights.
