What’s included with my ticket? Is it just entry to the event?
All tickets include entry to the festival. Only VIP tickets include Event Currency. VIP tickets include access to the VIP Lounge plus a few more perks. To see full details of each ticket type and what’s included click here.
Where do I buy tickets?
Tickets can be bought via Ticketflap in advance or at the Box Office on the day. It is recommended that you pre- purchase your tickets to take advantage of pre-festival discounts. Taste of Hong Kong is also limited in capacity so we recommend you purchase tickets in advance to avoid disappointment, especially for VIP tickets which are an exclusive and limited ticket type which is likely to sell out quickly.
I haven’t received my tickets from Ticketflap, were they supposed to be mailed out. What do I do?
All tickets are E- Tickets. Please bring a print out of your ticket to the relevant entry lane at the Festival (sign will direct you where to go). If you have any ticket related questions please contact Ticketflap directly by clicking here.
What are the event opening times?
Taste of Hong Kong takes place over 6 sessions across 4 days (16-19 March). Please refer to ‘About Taste’ page.
Can I stay all day or do I get kicked-out after my session?
Taste of Hong Kong is like a restaurant with lunch and dinner service. Each session is ticketed separately and you will be asked to leave after the session ends as the event closes between sessions. Keep in mind each session is from 4-5 hours and that is plenty of time to enjoy food from the restaurants, catch the live performances on stage and meet the exhibitors!
