In total, there will be 17 general holidays plus every Sunday off! Yeah!

Two Holiday Categories

Hong Kong has two categories of public holidays:

Statutory Holidays - These are required to be given to all employees under the Employment Ordinance.

General Holidays - These are days that banks, educational establishments, public offices, and government departments are obligated to observe as holidays under the General Holidays Ordinance.

The list of statutory and general holidays can be found on the HKSAR Government website here and here respectively.

General Information

  1. When a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is a public holiday.
  2. Normally, people will maximise their holidays by taking annual leave around general holiday dates to minimize their annual leave entitlement.
  3. It used to be the case that shops were shut during Chinese New Year whereas now with Hong Kong being a popular city for tourists, shopping malls, high street shops, bars, cafes and restaurants are usually open.
  4. Check / book ahead for any paid-for attraction especially if you intend to visit on a statutory or general holiday.
  5. Every Sunday is a holiday too.
