I believe you can get into Ocean Park for free on your birthday as long as you can show HKID :) And another person with you gets half price.

But I think the obvious answer to this is: hiking! Hong Kong has some of the best hiking trails in Asia, and it's free. For beginners, try the hike up to the Peak or Dragon's Back. For the more adventurous, try going up to Sunset Peak on Lantau and back down.

I would like to invite you for very interesting exhibition " Posterized" . It will take a place in May 25th- June 10th 2018 at the Qube Gallery PMQ in Hong Kong. The aim of the exhibition is to present poster art that speaks about issues of the modern world and have a global, universal meaning. You don't have to pay anything, just come and meet new people.
