The weekend is almost here - and now there is a new magazine to help you make the most of it. 48 Hours, launched by the South China Morning Post today, is your guide to the weekend and beyond.

48 Hours will keep you informed about the best of everything going on in Hong Kong, covering the latest films, gigs and arts events. Our team will give you the inside track on the best places to eat and drink, where to shop and what to buy. Fashion trends, top travel destinations, and the coolest gadgets are all featured. The magazine is also packed with our independent reviews and listings.

Today's 72-page edition, also available on newsstands, highlights four celebrities with famous parents who are forging their own path in the world of showbiz. Model and actress Jennifer Tse Ting-ting, singer Joyce Cheng Yan-yee, actor and director Derek Tsang Kwok-cheung and actor Timmy Hung Tin-ming talk exclusively to 48 Hours about their childhoods and reveal how they like to spend their weekends. 

We interview Spanish chef Ferran Adria, of elBulli fame, talk to pioneering German electronic band Kraftwerk ahead of their 3-D concert, and consider Wong Chuk Hang's evolution as a centre for art. We also look at Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's film, The Host, and the shoes of designer Angeline Lee and take a trip to Hoi An on Vietnam's central coast. Readers are invited to tell the story of their weekend in pictures by uploading them on Instagram.

48 Hours is free with the South China Morning Post every Thursday. If you miss it, it's also available at newsstands and convenience stores for HK$18. We hope you have a great weekend and enjoy our new magazine.
