Hong Kong Public Holidays 2016: How to maximize your time off for Travel

By: Flight Centre

We’ve always been lucky with public holidays in Hong Kong. But it’s even better this year. You can easily combine the public holidays with weekends, and take just a few days off work, and can enjoy a long break. Easter is the trump card. Take four days off and enjoy an 11-day trip by combing Easter and Ching Ming Festival. We’ve been lucky that a lot of public holidays fall on Fridays and Mondays this year, so start planning your getaways now. Flight Centre give us the low down on dates and how to get the most out of your time off:
