Taking in the 270 degree panorama of the Hong Kong skyline on Victoria Peak
is probably one of the most romantic things to do in Hong Kong with your loved ones. With skyscrapers below your feet, ships channeling to and from the Victoria Harbour and half of Kowloon peninsula in your sight its just the perfect ingredients for a romantic recipe.
Lots of couples do not realise how romantic the Star Ferry
ride is with the sea breeze blowing in your face as waves of lap over the sides of the ferry as you both take photos of each other against the backdrop of skyscrapers. What the most romantic thing about stroll down Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade
, apart from it being an iconic tourist landmark, is sometimes watching old folks walking side by side walking in front of you. They don't say anything to each other and look away from each other but is the sweetest sight ever. Alternatively the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
might be a better choice if you are looking for a quieter and off the beaten path type of place to cuddle for two.
When it comes to nightlife in Hong Kong Lan Kwai Fong is the obvious choice but ample bars and clubs such as Prive, Drop and Solar in Soho
are better for couple to sit down for a drink and then get cosy on the dancefloor.
Looking for romantic things to do during Summertime in Hong Kong? Summer definitely calls for nice trips to the beach which is why locals recommend Repulse Bay
and Shek O
. Soft sand and the gentle sounds of the seashore is seducing enough on its own as you sunbathe but the best beach to watch the sunset is Shek O beach. If you want to look for more exclusive local secret getaway from the more popular beaches then a short but worthwhile hike from Shek O beach to Tai Long Wan (Big Wave Bay)
is reputed to be a surfers paradise but the choppy waters are also a little more thrilling.
There is more to Cheung Chau
that just a fishing village because its the full authenticity of Hong Kong traditions without traffic. Cars are not allowed on Cheung chau and you can only get around by bike and the seafood alfresco dining by fishing sampans can be picturesque. Plenty of people choose to stay for a weekend and there are even hiking trails and beaches.
Chi Lin Buddhist Nunnery
sounds like a bore but not many locals have been to this ancient but quaint Chinese landscaped garden. Once you step in, the tranquility that sets in is beyond words, you don't even feel like you are in Hong Kong anymore as the silence sets in the occasional birds chirp. You will both enjoy seeing temples are so well maintained and Chinese architectural grandeur and little lotus ponds.
