Hong Kong Chinese New Year 2012 - Tips for middle-aged solo traveler?

Jump to last reply

Am spending two days traveling solo in Hong Kong at the end of a group tour on January 22 and 23, 2012. Just realized that this overlaps the Chinese New Years.

Any recommendations on what to do:
- by day?
- by evening?

Any recommendations for the best part of the city to stay in over this holiday? Is it worth upgrading to something like the InterContinental or Peninsula on these dates, even if I will miss the fireworks over the harbor?

Am a woman in my early 50s. Want to do something fun (but safe), particularly things unique to Hong Kong and its culture but not interested in clubbing with the twenty-somethings. Unfortunately, will miss the fireworks on Jan 24.
