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 DOG's First Birthday

The state's largest craft beer venue, the DOG Hotel, is celebrating a year of serving some of the city's coldest craft brews with a birthday bash.  Sixteen of the venue’s 59 taps will be pouring Sydney Brewery's local numbers including the Surry Hills Pils, Darlo Dark and Glamarama Summer Ale. To celebrate the DOG's birthday they will also be doing a one-off collaboration brew. The Light Rail Ale is an American-style fruity steam ale. It's a nod to Randwick’s future transport interchange and you can try a schooner for just $5.  After you've knocked back a few craft beers be sure to order up one of the DOG's smoked beef brisket burger (complete with a mac'n'cheese patty, slaw and pickles) or a lasagne spring roll (and yep, that's meat, pasta and cheese inside a spring roll.) Or the Friday fish and chips special for just $9.90. They'll also be giving you free cupcakes to celebrate. You'll also have the chance to win a trip to the Hunter Valley for a two night stay at the Crowne, complete with a brewery tour, dinner and a tasting session. Sydney Brewery’s head brewer Michael Capaldo will be on hand for a chat.
