Hong Kong lights up with 25 000 roses

Under the auspices of Seoul’s light Rose Garden world tour, Hong Kong was lit by thousands of rose lights on Valentine’s Day this year. 
 
The Light Rose Garden Tour which began in South Korea has made its first “overseas stop” at Hong Kong, lighting up the hearts of many over the season cupid. 
 
The garden consists of twenty five thousand water resistant roses tightly arranged next to each other (25 Roses for every square meter) at the Central and Western District Promenade in Hong Kong. 
 
Every night, the park majestically lights up against Hong Kong’s skyline, as 25 000 beautiful roses’ lights up the park. 
 
Organizer Jung Yong Jin said that he’s thrilled to watch the public outside of Seoul enjoy the garden.
 
"Hong Kong is a charming city. The nightscape is beautiful. That’s why I chose Hong Kong," says Jung.
 
"I created this LED rose garden because I wanted families, friends and lovers to come out to parks at night," as Jung further explains. 
Before the garden opened to the public, it attracted large traffic to the park with couples, families and friends flocking to take photos.
 
The entrances to the  park was filled with couples, friends and family taking pictures and sharing a special moment before the doors opened to the public. 
Ms Wu, a young professional from Taiwan, travelled to Hong Kong to celebrate Valentine’s Day with her other half. 
 
"Because I watch a lot of Korean dramas, there are a lot of romantic scenes in them with something like this. So when I saw this, I was actually moved” said Ms Wu. 
 
People from Hong Kong will be able to view the “Light Rose Garden” between the 14th – 22nd February 2016. 
 
The next destination for the tour is set to be at Singapore. 
 
The "Light Rose Garden" is open to the public from 14th – 22nd February in Hong Kong. Singapore is the next stop of its tour.
