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.
