It's hard to believe that we're already stepping into the month of May. With Mother's Day landing on May 8 (we hope you'll be treating her to a lavish meal and showering her with gifts) and the return of large-scale art events such as Art Central and Art Basel, Hongkongers are in for an exciting ride around the city this May. Here are just some of the biggest and best ones you should check out.

RECOMMENDED: If all you want to do is stay home for a little 'me' time, add these new shows and movies on Netflix to your watchlist.
