Now that the madness of Halloween is over, there’s no more rushing around the shops trying to find a costume, fake blood, and trick or treat snacks. All of our newfound spare time may just lead us to check out the food and music festival this weekend, or maybe even the Ladies Day at the races? Whatever your plans are this week, here are some fun things going on around town to keep you entertained!
Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair
November 5 – 7th
10am – 7pm
The Fair, a tasting and sourcing platform for wine enthusiasts and traders, is expected to attract over 1,000 exhibitors from around the world. Since the Hong Kong government eliminated wine duties in 2008, Hong Kong’s wine sector has taken off, and we’re not one to miss out on a trend! Many events are due to take place over the 3-day fair including grand tastings, master classes, wine tastings, cocktail demonstrations, and seminars. Admission is $100.
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wan Chai
Walk for Nature
9:30am – 6pm
Get out of the city and into nature this weekends with the ‘Walk for nature’. An annual fundraising event held in Hong Kong’s iconic Mai Po Nature Reserve to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund. The easy walk through a 5km path with workshops and games dotted along the way is a great alternative to a city weekend. Kids are welcome too, but no strollers unfortunately. Get your walking boots on and raise money for a good cause!

The Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse is one of the most historic races in Hong Kong racing. The winning jockey, trainer and owner are each rewarded with a gold coin presented, in accordance with the race’s long tradition, by an exquisite local young lady. With so much heritage and celebration of all things exceptional, it’s no surprise the Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse Day is one of Hong Kong’s most sought after racedays. Don’t miss the chance to get dressed up and witness some of Sha Tin’s top emerging stars competing in one of Hong Kong’s most historic races.
