Things to do in Hong Kong this weekend

By Ching Yuen 25 February 2020

Need some inspiration on what to do this weekend? Take a look at our rundown of the best events and things to do around town, and see what else is coming up in our Events Calendar.

Explore a world within your constellation

Did you know that the word “constellation” has nothing to do with astrology? It simply refers to the process of making what is hidden visible in three-dimensional space, with the use of human representatives, objects representing people, elements, and concepts that are being looked at from a higher perspective.

In this workshop hosted by I-Living and Anita Cheung, participants can gain insight about their life, their health, their relationships, or their business, and experience personal development. Click here for more information.

When: 29 February
Where: I-Living, 4/F, 31 Hollywood Road, Central

Get sanitising with some new tech

A Hong Kong-based material science company has developed a nano-photocatalyst coating capable of absorbing light energy and using that energy to safely decompose pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, odours, and VOCs.

When: 13 February–28 February
Where: 36 Cochrane Central, Central

Take a hike this weekend

As thrilling as Hong Kong can be, sometimes you just need a break from the city. Good news then that we have beautiful natural landscapes painted in emerald and azure, fringed with a beautiful gold—and no skyscrapers in sight! To make the most of these short and fleeting cooler months in Hong Kong, go on a stunning hike over Sunset Peak on Lantau Island. Click here for more information.

Explore the meaning of distance

Feng Yan’s grandest bewilderment and interest lie in the sense of distance in photography, the reflection on the distance, and the distance of reality and psychology. Is there a distance of reality? How do you measure psychological distance? The solo show will feature 14 photography works from various series including Psychedelic Bamboo, Tang Mausoleum Long Grass, Paintings, and Monument. Click here for more information.

When: 13 February–13 March
Where: Tang Contemporary Art, 10/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central

Find out whether normal is good

Normal Life, presented by artist Justin Wong, explores visual symbols. The artist re-engages with the sensibility to life and wants us to think about how to sincerely invest in “normal life.” Wong allows spaces, characters, and objects to collide with each other under the ambiguous relationship, thus creating an alternative plot and story. Click here for more information.

When: 13 February–7 March
Where: A Concept Gallery, 1C, Kingearn Building, 24–26 Aberdeen Street, Central

Escape from the crowds for some chill time

We’ll let you in on a few of our favourite cafés and coffee shops to go to that aren’t usually packed with customers, some because they’re not very well-known yet, and others because they’re in locations further out from the city. You can thank us when you’re fully caffeinated. Click here for more information.

Take your tastebuds on a journey

Presented by Test Kitchen and Butler, IF WE WERE IN CHARGE sees two leading local chefs take a trip down memory lane to revisit their past experiences at globally-renowned Michelin-starred restaurants to re-engineer their favourite dishes together, bringing diners an exclusive eight-course tasting menu for a limited period. Click here for more information.

When: 27–29 February
Where: Test Kitchen, Shop 3, Kwan Yick Building Phase 3, 158A Connaught Road West, Sai Ying Pun

Revel in the beauty of nature

When: 20 February–22 March
Where: Gallery by the Harbour, Shop 207, Level 2, Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui
