New Territories, Hong Kong: 38 reviews and 90 photos

  My wish in there somewhere!

We saw this on Globetrekker and decide it was a must. You Buy colored streamers from a little stand by the tree and wright your wishes on them. You attach the streamers to an orange and throw them as high as possible into the tree. If your Orange catches onto the branches, your wish will come true. Apparently the higher you can get it lodged the better your chances. It was certainly aimed at the tourist crowd, but we did see some locals taking part as well. It was well worth the adventure and offering the Oranges to the tree in exchange for your wish seemed like a fair trade to me
