We have our fingers and toes crossed that travel will finally be more of a thing next year, so let's plan ahead for these public holidays in Hong Kong 2023.
When travelling becomes a convenient option, we’d love to visit places like Vietnam, Thailand, and Taiwan ASAP. But who knows how things will change? Check out all the public holidays in Hong Kong 2023 and plan ahead for some fun – even if it needs to be a staycation in Hong Kong.
Public holidays in Hong Kong 2023
We’re getting 17 days off in 2023, which sounds good, but three still land on Saturdays, which breaks our hearts. However, you can get eight long weekends without having to use your annual leave (and nine if you do), so that’s a huge plus. Start planning your calendar now!
2 January (Monday) – The day following the first day of January
23 January (Monday) – The second day of Lunar New Year
24 January (Tuesday) – The third day of Lunar New Year
25 January (Wednesday) – The fourth day of Lunar New Year
So, if you take leave on 26 and 27 January, that’d make a whopping nine-day holiday – and we think that’s justifiable since there are no public holidays in February and March 2023. (cries)
Still can’t travel? Book a staycation at one of our favourite family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong.
