Hong Kong invites global travellers to discover city s diverse gastronomy and nightlife

This autumn, Hong Kong Tourism Board invites food and wine lovers from around the world to celebrate the joys of gastronomy in Asia’s culinary capital with the return of the city’s large-scale outdoor culinary event, Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival. The four-day festival also kicks off a month-long series of vibrant nightlife happenings taking place citywide throughout November.
Speaking about the upcoming Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, Puneet Kumar, Director – South Asia and Middle East, Hong Kong Tourism Board said, “As young and affluent Indian travellers seek immersive holidays, Hong Kong is ready to captivate their senses with global culinary experiences set against its iconic skyline. The return of the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, after a five-year hiatus, marks a momentous occasion in our culinary calendar. It's not just an event; it's a celebration of our rich gastronomic heritage and global flavours. It's an invitation to indulge in the vibrant spirit of the city’s gastronomy and nightlife. We are excited to welcome our international visitors to savour the world's finest flavours, create unforgettable memories and Discover Hong Kong like never before.”
Taking place from October 26-29 at Victoria Harbour’s Central Harbourfront Event Space, Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival 2023 will be a four-day gourmet extravaganza backdropped by the iconic city skyline. This year’s edition, which is the first physical edition of the event following a five-year hiatus, will boast nearly 300 booths showcasing global food and wine offerings, as well as a suite of interactive workshops for food lovers of all ages. Eligible overseas visitors will also receive a free cocktail on arrival.
Wine will naturally be a focus of the Festival, with the popular Major Country Pavilions showcasing makers from 36 countries around the world. This year, the spotlight will be on the classic vintages from France and Italy and emerging wine regions from Thailand, Moldova and Finland. In a Festival first, a dedicated display for Chinese Wine Discovery is being introduced, featuring wine merchants including Xige Estate and Chateau Mihope from Ningxia (Northwest China), Yunnan Red Wine & Spirits, and Shandong-based Mystic Island Winery.
The four-day event will allow visitors to indulge in a diverse array of global flavours in a single visit, with dishes ranging from punchy, flavour-filled street food and nostalgic local favourites to refined hotel delicacies by vendors including The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong.
