It's that time of the year again and Halloween is bigger and scarier than ever this year! In just two weeks, the streets of Hong Kong will be packed with zombies, fairies and sexy versions of all the vocations. But the fun doesn't end there, so get your calendars out because we've handpicked a list of fun events and parties for you to mark down.
During the day...
It is not Halloween if you don’t go to Lan Kwai Fong all dressed up – this year, LKF is chanlleging all of us to face our innermost and darkest thoughts with the theme, Dark Mirror. Apart from the mysterious black mirrors located at various spots, from time to time the devils will also wander around, so catch them and get your hands on the special edition of dark mirror as a reward!
If you're a true horror fan then you should already have bought your tickets and made your reservations to the OP annual event. Of course they have the ultimate H15 haunted house where you're carried individually through the house strapped to a bed... But there's also The Walking Dead house, Mutant Escape, as well as a series of children friendly attractions with Doraemon and candies involved. If you're a Walk Dead fan then don't forget to buy your merch before you head out!
If you're looking for screams of the joy nature, then Disneyland would be the appropriate choice. The land of magic will be turned into a ghost town for a few weeks, where you can experience a scary river cruise at night, have a run-in with the undead miners at the Grizzly Gulch or hang out with the ghosts of Mystic Point. But of course, it's not D-land without a trick-or-treat photo with Mickey and the gang! Opt for the personally-customized Halloween Spectacular Tour for the full experience.
The Halloween Styloween 2015 Monsters’ Ball is Fashion Walk’s invitation to unleash the beasts of fun, flair, and funk for a truly wild night to remember. On the night of October 30 you can party with a two-meter-tall “Monster F” and snap a few shots with movie monsters. Of course there'll also be trick or treat at the stores, games, tarot readings AND free Kirin frozen beer. Yup, it's totally free to attend!
