Reading Time: 2 minutesWe all know that we’re blessed to be in Hong Kong, where something is always going on (sorry, New York, we’ve got you beat here!) and for kids, it’s no different. Weekends are your opportunity to explore the city and make memories outside of work/ school, so take advantage of all the cool things the 852 has to offer. The weather is forecast to be rainy this weekend, but don’t let that stop you! Here are some things to do this weekend with your kids.
Hong Kong Charity Bazaar
Head to Jordan this weekend for the Hong Kong Charity Bazaar, a market that brings together small businesses and artisans to support local charities. The organisation has committed to donating 20% of the table income fee to its partners charities.
You’ll find at least 30 vendors selling a wide variety of goods, from vegan food, jewellery and art to candles, soap and books. You can also take part in woodworking, bead jewellery and food waste workshops and there will be live performances and speakers.
Plus, 100 guests will receive free goody bags!
