Expats in Hong Kong are set to party the night away this New Year’s Eve, with all-you-can-drink offers proving extremely popular among foreigners in a city renowned for its high prices.

Hong Kong offers everything, from its bustling Mong Kok and high-end Central districts, to spectacular mountains and stunning beaches, but this diversity comes at a price and, rent excluded, nights out are where it hits the hardest for most young expats.

Numerous bars and restaurants on the vibrant Hong Kong Island have, therefore, offered special promotions in order to entice thirsty revellers in for the night. And it seems that expats, well-known for their party spirit, have been only too happy to take advantage of it.

Crystal from the UK said, “New Year’s Eve in Hong Kong is always equally fun and nightmarish. Obviously the fireworks are pretty amazing, but you have to wrestle to get any view of them at all, and last year I was so drunk by midnight I don’t remember anyway.”

This year Crystal revealed she was giving the fireworks a miss and jumping on the all-you-can-drink bandwagon by seeing the new year in at one of Wan Chai’s trendy resto-bars, where free-flow drinks are on offer between 9:00pm and 2:00am for HKD500.
