Halloween is just around the corner, and we hope you have already planned a fun night out. In case you haven’t, we are here to help.
Take a look at some of the fantastic destinations around the world to consider celebrating Halloween in.
Halloween originated in Ireland and is known as ‘Samhain Night’. The medieval Irish festival of Samhain marked the end of the harvest, bringing shorter days and the “darker half” of the year. It is linked to the dead revisiting the mortal world, large communal bonfires, and associated lore.
Visit graveyards and famous murder sites on an after-dark ghost walk. The capital’s bad history comes alive at the place of execution in the 14th-century, and an old churchyard said to be haunted by the ghostly figure of Queen Isabella, the She-Wolf of France.
Hong Kong is known as the Halloween party capital of Asia. The celebration here is specific. It involves the event called “Yue Lan” (Festival of the Hungry Ghosts). The ceremony emphasis is less on the party and sooner is an opportunity to give gifts to spirits of the dead to provide comfort and ward them off. Therefore, if you are into calm celebrations, Hong Kong is best.
Another exciting Halloween destination in Asia is Bangkok, Thailand. If you ended up in this never-sleeping city and looking for Halloween adventures, we recommend you Silom Soi 4. It is a pedestrian street of bars, restaurants, and clubs. The road is the scene for a massive Halloween street party in Bangkok, which will make you remember this celebration for the rest of your life.
