Highly mobile Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) who have lived in Hong Kong and in Singapore often argue about, which is a more exciting place. Each side vehemently insisting that their favourite city pips the other to the post.

Going by Hong Kong Tourism Board's (HKTB) scintillating inauguration of the 10th edition of the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival,  this round seems to be going in Hong Kong's favour. 

First-ever unique drone performance was held over Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour to celebrate the 10th edition of Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival, which opened yesterday. 

All on Singapore's side, enjoy the wine for the day and come back to fight another day. ;-)

Festival is slated to give locals and visitors a refreshing four-day wine and dine experience from 25 to 28 October.

Highlight of the opening ceremony was the unprecedented choreographic drone performance by 100 drones over Victoria Harbour. A must visit place for all tourists during a trip to the bustling metropolis.

The seven-minute performance displayed various patterns and animations, including the number “10” and birthday cakes against the breathtaking backdrop of Victoria Harbour. Drone performance will take place daily at 7pm for the next three days of the Wine and Dine Festival.

Besides, rising stars from ViuTV’s “King-Maker”, and popular local artists and bands such as JW, RubberBand and Dear Jane will take turns to grace the main stage each night.

This edition of the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival is set to be the largest to date, with the event venue extended from the Central Harbourfront Event Space to Tamar Park to accommodate about 450 booths serving fine wines and exquisite food.
