What's New In The 852

With bendy beach buckets, BPA free paddling pools, organic cotton kids robes, huge robotic dinosaurs, new date-night locations and more! It’s shaping up to be an eclectic and awesome month.

We love going to the beach. Lugging along the huge haul of beach things…not so much. Luckily there are some new space-saving beach and gardening tools now available in the 852. If you prefer to stay at home, one Hong Kong Mama has created a range of paddling pools and inflatables that are BPA free! With new restaurants opening and a cool new bar in Soho, we know where we’ll be heading for a date night. Water World Ocean Park has new offerings, plus, look out for new stores from a couple of well-known Hong Kong favourite brands. And don’t forget that it’s Father’s Day on Sunday, 19 June! Have you got your Father’s Day gifts sorted yet?
