Victoria Harbour -- Hong Kong, China

Celebrating the start of the Chinese New Year, the Lunar New Year fireworks are held on the second day of the Lunar New Year over Victoria Harbour. A corporation called Jardine Matheson started the fireworks in 1982 to celebrate its own 150th anniversary, but decided to make it an annual event for the citizens of Hong Kong.

There are several good areas around the harbour for the best views of the fireworks -- including Tsim Sha Tsui, Mid-levels, Central District, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Hung Hom Bypass.
