Your guide to Hong Kong this Rugby Sevens

Early next April, Hong Kong will be hosting the biggest party of the year. The Rugby Sevens are coming to town from April 7 to 9, and the city is set to spring to life with edge-of-your-seat sportsmanship and plenty of parties, side gigs and excitement. Featuring 28 teams and 120,000 fans, this time of year is when the world truly comes out to play in this spectacular city.   There are direct flights departing from Australia to Hong Kong several times daily, and the flight time is under ten hours. That makes this trip an easy first step into a world of action.   What's more, April is the perfect time to visit Hong Kong. Sure, the Sevens are a reason to come, but Hong Kong Stadium can be a launch pad for a trip packed with amazing eating, celebrating and even wilderness adventures. Events Worldwide Travel are an official travel agent of the Hong Kong Sevens, so make sure to check out their special packages, and check out the Hong Kong Tourism Board for more inspiration. In the meantime here’s how to take advantage of the city, and linger a little longer once the Sevens are done.

The Canberra Hit List

Canberra used to be the punchline of jokes: known only for porn, politicians and legal fireworks. Now the fireworks are restricted and there are far more stimulating things happening outside the adult shops than on their shelves. Canberra in the twenty-teens boasts hipper hotels than Sydney, excellent cafés, some of the best galleries and museums in the country, and, of course, the chance to pick up leaked Federal documents from behind the couch at popular public servant boozers. Because some things never do change. Tigerair's great value daily direct flights between Melbourne and Canberra launch December 8, book one today.
