Long weekends only go two ways in Hong Kong, either you’re making the most of this lilypad island and hop on a cheeky flight to Thailand or Vietnam, or on the flip side you’re staying in Hong Kong whilst a huge bulk of the city is enjoying coconuts on a beach. Of course we all love to go away, but sometimes there’s nothing better than home for a long weekend, and no one can complain about a quiet Hong Kong. Yes please to a seat on the MTR! But just because there’s a lack of people in city, it doesn’t mean Hong Kong has decided to sleep. Here are our top events we’re looking forward to this Labour Day weekend
Get fit & get lit with Zouk At Sea
This is so Hong Kong that it deserves some kind of award. Picture a luxury cruise ship picking you and your girlfriends up on Friday night, partying, then waking up (hopefully hangover free) for a fitness retreat with Guavapass. On the cruise you can enjoy yoga, spinning, pilates as well as games such as dodgeball for a full weekend. As well as this, you can treat yourself to the cruises ships amenities including the spa!
How much: Starts from $1190 which includes fitness classes and a room for two for two nights.
When: Friday 28th- Sunday 30th April 2017
