    What're you doing this weekend?

    Would you tell me that I can say "What're you doing this weekend?" when I want to ask about his or her plan this weekend on Saturday(during this weekend)?
    Is it more suitable to use present perfect continuous?

    I've posted this question in HiNative and No one have answered so far.
    That's why I would post this thread here.

    Thank you for reading through!

    Re: Can I use present continuos in this situation?

    The present continuous is fine. The present perfect continuous is wrong with reference to the future.
