    National Day "Golden Week" tourism rush / Asian Games

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about the National Day Golden Week, with up to a million mainland tourists expected to visit Hong Kong throughout the 8-day period.

    Coinciding with the newly launched Night Vibes HK Campaign, the highly anticipated holiday week will be an opportunity to test the health of the territory's tourism and
    entertainment sectors.
    From night markets to discounted cinema tickets and a 23-minute National Day fireworks display, visitors and locals should have plenty of options.
    How well geared-up are we for a big influx of visitors? How much of an impact will the night markets and other attractions have on the economy? And how much does the F&B sector stand to benefit?
    At 9:55, we get the latest on the Asian Games.
