Families come together on Labour Day to have fun while remembering the struggles and achievements of Hong Kong’s workers, both past and present.
What: Labour Day, also known as May Day, is a national holiday in Hong Kong that celebrates the collective strength of workers and their contributions to the country.
When: Labour Day is held every year on May 1.
Customs: In the past Labour Day had a focus on political rallies as organised labour was fighting against the colonial government, but now these gatherings have a more celebratory feel as workers come together to celebrate their achievements.
Travel: Most businesses remain open so travel is not too affected. You may find increased usage of public transport into the city and that attractions and public spaces are more crowded due to Labour Day events.
