Japan’s cherry blossoms are world-renowned and signify the beginning of spring however, with travel continuing to be off the table for now and the foreseeable future it may feel impossible to catch a sight of these stunning flowers. Thankfully, you can participate in hanami, the flower viewing rite of spring, right here in our very own concrete jungle. From around February to March there are eight different locations in Hong Kong that you can catch a glimpse of these infamous and beautiful pink sakuras.

On the island of Cheung Chau sits the Kwan Kung Pavilion, a traditional red and green Chinese pavilion that houses a statue of Kwan Kung, the ‘God of War’. Surrounding the pavilion are around ten Taiwanese cherry blossom trees that generally bloom between February to March. Cheung Chau is a stunning island to visit for greenery and outdoor activities so it’s easy to make a day out of the visit.
