In this city, every day’s an adventure, and there’s always more fun to be had. From salsa to scuba, HK’s your oyster. Dive right in, the water’s warm!


There’s no better way to get your brain cells back into robust action than to start learning a new language. With four different tones and no formal alphabet, Mandarin will be sure to give those sleepy neurons a work out. It will also look great on your resume and given a few months, you may be able to negotiate in Chinese around your office, or better still, around the stores! Or, why not indulge in an Italian, French or Spanish course, which will conjure up memories of holidays on the Riviera while you work your way up to sounding like a native speaker in preparation for next summer.
