What’s on this weekend in Hong Kong…
The sunshine has finally returned, so if it stays for the weekend then of course we’ll want to be outside! Yogis can’t miss out on OMFEST Hong Kong, an outdoor yoga fest at the Central Harbourfront. If you really want to unwind, then head over to awesome new oyster bar, The Walrus, for a shucking good street party. And if that’s not your cup of tea, check out Vibes at The Mira for a tiki-themed Tropical Haven Party. Here’s to the weekend!
