Travel Chinese New Year Hong Kong Lanterns

A little girl with a pretty bow in her hair glowing in white is first to greet me. She stands amid a row of lanterns, some towering over me.

When Hong Kong lights up, it lightens up!

Come spring or autumn, or celebrating the Chinese New Year, bright and beautiful lanterns light up Hong Kong.  And they come in all forms depicting people.
