The Best Of Hong Kong

It’s almost the end of the year — which means it’s time to get a head start on holiday planning for 2018! Without further ado, here is a list of Hong Kong holidays for the year ahead. Unless you work on Saturdays, public holidays that fall on that day represent a lost cause to most Monday to Friday folk. In 2018, there will be a total of 17 public holidays, two of which fall on a Saturday. That’s at least one public holiday every month, except for August and November. Happy planning!
