Hong Kong Public Holidays 2008 (Source: Hong Kong Government Gazette)

    If you are planning for business travel to Hong Kong in 2008, you should  
be aware of the Hong Kong Public Holidays. (Besides having your  
business card translated to Chinese) Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, 
but it is allowed to keep its traditional public holidays in the British days. In 
addition, a bunch of Chinese National Holidays were introduced. Hong  
Kong thus gets a double dose of Public Holidays.
