Best views of the Chinese New Year's Parade

Hello,

Does anyone know of any particular spots, restaurants, roof bars etc. that have good views of the Chinese New Year parade. I really don't mind the expense so anything that you can think of would suit.

Thank you for all your help guys.

Best views are from the spectator stands. However, tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis from HKTB Visitor Centre at Star Ferry Pier Concourse on 25th January and they usually sell out within a couple of hours. Other tickets go to VIP's and travel agents who offer various CNY Night Parade packages such as;

You can get pretty good views as a spectator on the parade route and there are further details of timings etc here;

The parade travels along only a small part of Salisbury Road and doesn't pass YMCA Salisbury but you can view from nearby. The route map is here;
