Still remember my 2014 blog post “Finding great bargains in a Chinese New Year fair”?
We flied to Hong Kong again this lunar new year and stayed in the same hotel opposite the Victoria Park Flower Market which opened from Feb 10 to 6 a.m. on Feb 16.
Most people buy plants and flowers to decorate their homes and offices one to two weeks before Chinese New Year. Many visit the flower market on New Year’s Eve as a tradition for good luck. The busiest hours are after reunion dinner from 10 p.m. to after midnight.
People enjoy the atmosphere and fun to squeeze through the crowd with families and friends. But with tons of potential buyers , vendors would sell at the highest possible prices. Afterall, this is the critical time for sellers to make money.
If not now, when?
Finding good deals in the flower market
