It's all about "Art"!

Here's a taste of what's hot in Hong Kong...

From 1 to 31 March the city will host the annual Hong Kong Arts Month, where local and overseas artists will converge to deliver inspiring programmes including exhibitions, dance, music, theatre and more. In addition to major international events, visitors are encouraged to take some time to explore the vibrant local neighbourhoods and art communities where art of all kinds can be discovered around every corner. www.discoverhongkong.com/au/see-do/events-festivals/highlight-events/hong-kong-arts-month.jsp 

A major highlight of Hong Kong Arts Month is the globally renowned Art Basel. From 29 to 31 March 2019 the exhibition will return to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre with a lavish visual feast, and will feature 242 galleries from 36 countries, 21 of which are new additions. www.artbasel.com/hong-kong 

Another major highlight is Art Central, taking place from 27 to 31 March 2019. Now in its fifth year, the event will showcase over 100 galleries from around the globe.

The 2019 Hong Kong E-Prix will see a range of electrifying new features added to its programme as 22 drivers from 11 teams take to Hong Kong's iconic harbourfront street circuit on 10 March. Spearheaded by the debut of the long-awaited Formula E Gen2 car, which has almost double the range and energy storage capacity of the previous car, fans will be among the first in the region to witness the future of everyday electric road vehicles. With no mid-race car swap, a new team in the HWA RACELAB, and Nissan e.dams replacing Renault, fans can expect more action on and off the track than ever before. www.discoverhongkong.com/au/see-do/events-festivals/sports-and-recreation/formula-e-hong-kong-eprix.jsp

The world's greatest rugby players will descend on the vibrant city of Hong Kong from 5 to 7 April for the forty-fourth Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament. The roar of more than 120,000 passionate spectators will engulf the stadium to create an electric atmosphere as international teams battle it out for glory and honour. The three day event will be held at Hong Kong's largest outdoor sports venue, Hong Kong Stadium. Located amongst the foothills in the south of Causeway Bay, the stadium delivers picturesque surrounds with easy access via the MTR (Hong Kong's railway system), plus loads of surrounding restaurants and bars where visitors can refuel. However, the party doesn't stop there with the whole city embracing the excitement, from fancy dress costumes and the Fan Zone in Central to special dedicated events. www.discoverhongkong.com/au/plan-your-trip/vacation-packages/CathayPacific-RugbySevens-Oct2018.jsp
