Unforgettable Hong Kong

Discover the excitement of a romantic holiday in Hong Kong-a living fusion of East and West. Whether you are planning your honeymoon, celebrating an anniversary or simply getting to know one another, Hong Kong has the magic to make memories for life. The celebrated Victoria Harbour here makes a perfect backdrop for those in love. 

You could board a Duk Ling- an authentic Chinese junk and set sail into Hong Kong’s scenic harbour for a 360-degree view of city’s impressive skyline. It has crisscrossed Hong Kong’s waters for hundreds of years, and still reminds you of the romance that accompanied the early taipans. 

You might start your day with a champagne breakfast in a luxurious hotel suite with a view.  Check for the little luxuries such as limousine service, flowers, en-suite Jacuzzis, day spas and infinity pools. Build up your appetite with a ride in the Peak Tram all the way up to the revitalised Peak Tower and ‘new again’ Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. Fix a date with a fortune-teller in the pavilions of serene, incense-filled temples or pack in a day of outdoor fun at Hong Kong’s fantasy island retreats. Relax in your hotel’s health or beauty spa, and get ready for an elegant gourmet dinner at the Café Deco located on The Peak.   Charter a yacht for the day, dine on board or tell the captain to set a course for a seafood feast at picturesque Sai Kung, Lei Yue Mun or tranquil Lamma Island. Board a Duk Ling- an authentic Chinese junk and set sail into Hong Kong’s scenic harbour for a 360-degree view of city’s impressive skyline. Share the calming sea breeze and sweet air as you ramble in nature’s delights. You’ll be amazed, but there are more than 260 outlying islands in Hong Kong. The largest is Lantau- home to the world’s tallest, outdoor, seated, bronze Buddha at the Po Lin Monastery. 

While in Lantau, add some magic to your romance with a visit to Hong Kong Disneyland. Immerse yourself in the storybook world of Fantasyland, or travel back in time to small town America with a visit to Main Street, USA! And when the sun goes down, you can hold your hands while the dazzling firework displays unfold like a dream coming true against the backdrop of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The romantic options in Hong Kong are only limited by your imagination. If a chauffeured limousine is not your scene, go ahead and hire a helicopter for a thrilling ride over the territory. Or take a tram tour of Hong Kong Island, or an open-top bus along neon-lit Nathan Road at night.

Enjoy a moonlit stroll along the Avenue of Stars at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, which also offers the perfect viewpoint to marvel at A Symphony of Lights -a dramatic display that lights up the night, every evening at 8pm. The multimedia show involves over 30 buildings decked out in dancing neon lights and laser beams coordinated to music and narration.   

Visit the Giant Buddha at the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island. Enjoy an exclusive vegetarian meal cooked by the monks followed by a visit to a teahouse at Ngong Ping Village.There are many other ways to pamper your special someone in Hong Kong style. The Soho area and Knutsford Terrace are two of Hong Kong’s most fashionable dining hotspots and perfect for a romantic meal. Stanley and Repulse Bay, serve meals in charming colonial settings with sweeping beaches and shoreline promenades. Enjoy the drinks later at Lan Kwai Fong or at the stylish Felix at the top of The Peninsula Hotel.
