Hong Kong's 2024 public holidays revealed


Six long weekends and four mid-week breaks are in store for employees in the coming year.

The HKSAR government has announced the list of general holidays for 2024. Except for Lunar New Year's Day, and the day following Good Friday (which is always on a Saturday), Hong Kong employees can fully enjoy all public holidays in the coming year.

There are four holidays, namely Labour Day, the Birthday of the Buddha, the Mid-Autumn Festival, and Christmas, that fall on a Wednesday, allowing employees to take a mid-week break. On the other hand, six long weekends are also waiting in 2024.
