Hopping between Hong Kong, London, Hua Hin and Sydney. Exploring and eating my way through these great cities. I have a small tummy, big appetite.

A variety of pop-up food stalls will cater to the health-conscious and downright hungry alike.

Entry is free and classes are affordable at HK$20 per person. Note participants must register online beforehand. Things to bring include a yoga mat, towel, yoga brick, sunscreen and water.

The class schedule will be published on the website soon. For details on how to register click here.

Built on the former British explosives magazine site, the Asia Society is worth a visit anytime to see the various art and culture exhibitions on display throughout the year. The current program Breathing Space: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong runs until 13 August 2017.

Sympathetically designed for its environment, greenery is a key feature along the walkways that zig-zag up to the garden rooftop. Explore the complex by following the path along the now weathered tram lines that once transported ammunition and arsenal between the military buildings.

Free public heritage tours are scheduled on a regular basis. To join the next one on 21 May 2017 click here.

The onsite restaurant Ammo is well worth checking out. The focus of the room is the copper bar and the decor is certainly appropriate for a restaurant built on an old explosives factory. An entire glass wall shows off the jungle garden with the rest of the restaurant richly decorated in high-sheen metallic fittings.

The Asia Society is located next to the Conrad Hotel. If arriving by public transport it is a 12 minute walk uphill from Admiralty MTR Station. However you can escape the heat and walk through the Pacific Place shopping mall for some air-conditioned luxury. There are 400 car parking spaces inside the mall but none at the centre itself.

There is a non-guest taxi queue at the Conrad Hotel for getting home after the event.
