Are you scouring through event pages looking for new things to do in Hong Kong this month? Hong Kong always has happening city scenes where new events, exhibitions and must-go spots pop up.
To keep the buzz and the razzmatazz of the city alive, we’ve rounded up new exhibitions, food markets and other fun HK activities available now. Here are our top picks of places to visit and things to do in Hong Kong this fall.
Take a trip to Hong Kong’s new indoor roller skating rink and roll all the stress away. Bun’s 2020 is Hong Kong’s largest roller rink which opened in Quarry Bay in early September. This retro-style roller skating rink has an area of 20,000 square feet with two different sections – the main skating rink for those already experienced on wheels and a small training pool for amateurs and children who can take up individual or group classes to learn how to skate from experienced instructors.
The craze for Bun’s 2020 is understandable with its funky 80s-style interior. Colorful fluorescent tubes, a slow-spinning disco ball and speakers blasting hit English and Cantonese pop songs from four decades ago have enticed many to visit this rink. To really export themselves to the 80s, many guests come dressed up in flared trousers, bandanas and space buns. Soon, once Bun’s 2020 has its required licensing, skaters can enjoy food at the booths, too.
The Science Behind Pixar
Running from now until December 1 at the Hong Kong Science Museum, The Science Behind Pixar is an interactive exhibition for fans of some of the iconic animated movies like “Toy Story,” “Finding Nemo,” “Up” and others. Through more than 50 educational and engaging exhibits, models and videos, the exhibition allows fans to get an in-depth and up-close look at how STEM technology is incorporated into storytelling and gain unparalleled insight into the filmmaking process.
The exhibition is divided into eight zones that align with Pixar’s technical process, including modeling, rigging, surfaces, sets and cameras, animation, simulation and lighting and rendering. Visitors can engage in different zones and get hands-on experience by deciding on the best lighting for Dory from “Finding Nemo” or pose characters with virtual skeletons as animators. So don’t forget to bring your cameras and get ready to take pictures with all your favorite Pixar characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Sulley and Mike and the Parr family.
Tong Chong Street Market
