Just a stone’s throw away from Equinox Mercury, Tai Hang is one of the developing dining districts in Hong Kong. Every Mid-Autumn Festival, the Tai Hang residents would perform the Fire Dragon Dance for three nights. Fire Dragon Dance has its origin in 1880, and is added to the third national intangible cultural heritage list since June 2011. The dragon is 67-metre-long, studded with thousands of burning joss sticks that at night produce an incredible spectacle of fire, smoke and dynamic fury as the dragon wends and dances through the backstreets of Tai Hang. It is a spectacular ritual guaranteed to be one of the most extraordinary events you will ever witness.

Equinox Mercury is near the famous Tin Hau Temple too. Tin Hau Temple was built in the early 18th century. This is one of the many dedicated to Tin Hau, goddess of the sea, and is a fine example of temple architecture of the period, still largely in its original form despite subsequent renovations.
