What to Do in Hong Kong in March 2018
Mingle with the elite of the art world
Starting on March 29, Art Basel comes to the Hong Kong Convention Center for the sixth year, as 248 international galleries descend on Wan Chai to show off their greatest treasures. Due to the sheer scale of the eventâ"weâre talking three days of everything from from massive installations (this year, one plays on tropes from morning talk shows) to delicate landscapesâ"thereâs something for everyone. And by everyone, we also mean the international celebrity crowd who regularly show up. The people-watching is almost as good as the art.
Eat the day away
Itâs very hard to have a bad meal in Hong Kong, but that doesnât mean all those options, from dim sum to three-Michelin-star fine dining, arenât a little overwhelming sometimes. Why not eat a bit of everything? Thatâs the idea behind Taste of Hong Kong, which takes ove r the Central Harbourfront from March 22 to March 25. Restaurants from all over the city set up shop, churning out their most popular dishes in a friendly competition for your future loyalty. Live entertainment and vendors selling hard-to-find ingredients round out the experience.
Hit the streets
Consider it the antidote to the buttoned-up Art Basel: HK Walls is an eight day celebration of street art (March 24 - April 1), bringing muralists, stencilers, and graffers from all over the world to the cityâs Central and Western districts. One of the greatest things about street art festivals is seeing artists from different countries in real time, at live painting sessions. Often, the artists meet just before they start putting paint to concrete. The full line-up hasnât been announced yet, but keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates. The event's bound to add even more color to Hong Kong's walls.Source: Google News Hong Kong | Netizen 24 Hong Kong
