In Hong Kong Saturday, officially is not a day off, many companies however do give their employees the whole day or half a day off. It is advisable to plan for meetings during the week rather than a Saturday.

Travelling to Hong Kong for business is normally fine year round, but you really want to avoid Chinese New Year. During this time, the dates vary annually, many companies will completely close shop for sometimes as long as a week. For leisure travellers then travelling to Hong Kong should not be a problem, shops are still open etc and there is normally some very impressive fireworks and festivals on. It should be noted however that flights to and from the SAR may well be very full or more expensive than normal during this period.
