It’s 6.30 am in Hong Kong. That’s 10.30pm back home. Time to get up! I roll my aching body out of the incredibly comfortable hotel bed and try to clear the fog in my head enough to remember why I’m getting up so early, when all my body wants to do is go back to bed.

I came to Hong Kong for work but filled the rest of my days with anything else I wanted to do. Explore, see, eat, walk, swim and breathe in this incredible city.

If you’re like me and come to Hong Kong for work but stay on for the fun, here’s 10 things to do on a free weekend in Hong Kong.
