For Your Diary: What’s On In Hong Kong For April

6 April, 2016

What’s on this month…

It’s that awkward time of year where we’re still figuring out whether we need to bring a cardigan with us to work, and immediately regretting wearing that long sleeved top to brunch – but summer is within reach and with the change of season comes a whole new host of new, hot (finally!) events. Expect rugby madness with the Hong Kong 10’s and of course, Hong Kong’s biggest sporting event – the Rugby Sevens. There are also tons of concerts, club nights and awesome activities to get involved with, so get ready for an amazing April!
