[First Name]

This week we are getting out.

The mercury has dropped and the time has arrived for outdoor activities.

Choose from festivals and markets or get on your bike or hit the trails and breathe with the trees.

Martin Williams from HK Outdoors has got us covered with The 25 Best Day Walks in Hong Kong and he's lined up a couple of events this month to meet others who share our love of hiking in the perfect autumn weather.

We are predicting a record turnout at Vegfest tomorrow with growing interest in a plant-based lifestyle.

Adam Higgs has been serving Hong Kong with regular visits since 2007 and he returns to Shakti Healing Circle with his popular mind body spirit healing techniques.

And we just received word that Dr Jane Goodall will be back in November and advance booking is now available for Royal Geographical Society members.

Our members are gearing up for the busy season and staying ahead of the curve with wellness products and services while honoring traditional products and practices that have stood the test of time.

The year has zoomed by and it's fun to keep up with all the changes.

What are your plans to get out and play?
