Valentine’s Day is just a couple of days away and if you aren’t sure how to spend it this year, look no further.
Here are 10 romantic things to do in Hong Kong.
(And really these can apply to any time of the year, not just Valentine’s Day.)
Romantic Hong Kong
1. See Victoria Harbour
Victoria Harbour is always romantic, but even more so when the sun is going down and all the lights come on. Stroll along the promenade hand-in-hand or enjoy the Avenue of Stars together.
2. Take a Dinner Cruise
If simply walking along the promenade isn’t your thing, then maybe taking a romantic dinner cruise is more your style. There are tons of different companies that provide dinner cruises around the harbour for various prices.
3. Go up to The Peak
Get an amazing view of Hong Kong while expressing your love from the highest point on Hong Kong Island– The Peak. And while you’re up there be sure to leave a message of love on the giant “Say I Love You at The Peak” heart.
4. Ride in a Helicopter
See the beautiful skyline from sky-high by taking a helicopter tour. Again there are various companies to choose from, but if you want the height of luxury, the Peninsula offers a helicopter tour and dinner package (with optional massages!).
5. Stay in the Intercontinental Hong Kong Terrace Suite
For the ultimate romantic night in Hong Kong, book a night at the Intercontinental’s Terrace Suite. Where else can you opt to sleep outside with a perfect view of the Hong Kong skyline?
6. Dine at Aqua
Take in the views of Hong Kong while sipping a drink and enjoying dessert. Aqua in Tsim Sha Tsui is said to be the bar with the best view of Hong Kong. Make sure to reserve a window seat in advanced however!
7. Have Fun at Disneyland Hong Kong
For the kids at heart, have a magical day at Disneyland Hong Kong. Disney is always a fun place to relax and be a kid again, but they’ll also help cater to making your day as special as possible– just tell them in advanced what you’re celebrating!
8. Explore a Private Island
Hong Kong has over 200 offshore islands, so why not hire a boat and go exploring? You’ll be able to have an island all to yourself for the perfect picnic while watching the sunset.
9. Stroll Through the Flower Markets
Visit the flower markets in Mong Kok to pick out the perfect bouquet of roses together. Or why not take a gander at some of the wedding floral shops? There are always sample centerpieces and more, so you can have some fun picking out your favorites together while you pretend to plan your future wedding.
10. Pack a Picnic
Hong Kong is covered in parks. In fact, over 40% of Hong Kong’s land is reserved for parks, making it the highest reserve in the world for parks. So pack a picnic and enjoy a nice meal out in the park– especially now that the weather is getting nice again.
People often complain that there’s nothing special to do in Hong Kong. Go shopping, go out to eat, see a movie– the same old same old. Hopefully this has given you a few ideas on how to be romantic in Hong Kong for any occasion.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
