There's more to the candle-lit dinner, the chocolates and the flowers... Hong Kong's stunning harbour lends itself
to unforgettable memories. No matter what your budget, there are certainly many options to make this day extra special.
From romantic strolls, a quiet restaurant with killer views, the iconic sunset cruise on the harbour
or a mind-blowing flight as you soar over the magnificent skyline... here are some romantic getaway ideas for a magical Valentine's Day in Hong Kong:
Our Favorite Strolls
Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and Avenue of Stars
For fantastic views of the harbour, you can't beat this stroll. Not exactly a quiet and peaceful walk as this is a popular spot at
all times, but the views of the skyline on the opposite side are stunning.
Start your walk from the Star Ferry Terminal as the sun goes down and the lights of the city start coming to life.
Then head East towards the Avenue of the Stars and end your walk at
the InterContinental, drop by the Lobby Bar for a drink with its fantastic floor-to-ceiling windows for more mind-blowing views. If you stick around
long enough, the Symphony of Lights starts at 8:00 pm
Oasis in Central: Hong Kong Park
If you happen to be on the Island side, this is our favorite spot to scape the concrete jungle of the Central district.
A paved path takes you around ponds, waterfalls, manicured flower beds, lots of trees and vegetation, Hong Kong Park is
right in the middle of the skyscrapers, a little oasis and a charming stroll.
Right around the corner, is the Lower Terminus Station for Victoria Peak Tram, take it up to the Peak and enjoy some
of the most fantastic views Hong Kong has to offer.
Nan Lian Garden
Beautiful, peaceful, serene... the Nan Lian gardens and its beautiful hallmark pavillion, koi ponds, arch bridges, cascades and lily pools... and a
hidden restaurant behind a waterfall...
This is one of our favorite gardens, although a bit far from the main tourist areas, it is very easy to get there with the MTR, just a two-minute
walk from the Diamond Hill Station on the Green line.
Best Sunsets in Hong Kong
Valentine's Day and romantic sunsets go hand in hand... Luckily, in Hong Kong you don't have to go far, some of the most fantastic
sunsets can be enjoyed right from the promenade on the Tsim Sha Tsui side.
It is absolutely
magical as the sun sinks in the horizon behind the skyline... the colours start to burst... yellows, oranges, pinks, reds, purples... then the lights
start coming to life, absolutely unreal...
Sunsets in Aberdeen are also out of this world:
Hire a sampan to take you around the picturesque harbour with the many fishing junks and the tall buildings framing it. The lights start to glow and
reflect in the water and the majestic floating restaurants are quite a sight when they are all lit. A 20-minute run for two should be around HK 75.
to what many suggest, the Peak is not an optimal spot for sunsets if you also want to enjoy the city skyline,
the sun sets behind and the views will be of the back of the island and the reservoir, also beautiful with the islands and the open sea in the distance
but not exactly what most have in mind.
Consider a sunset cruise, also a wonderful way to enjoy the magical Hong Kong sunsets, below we list a couple of options. Be sure
to book in advance, Valentine's Day, although a western holiday, is catching up quickly in Hong Kong, so it is better to be prepared.
Sunset / Evening Cruises
Sunset or Evening Sail Aboard the Aqualuna
Aqua Luna is the beautiful red-sailed junk you will see cruising the waters of Victoria Harbour every day.
We love the top deck which is lined on both sides with comfy sofas where you can lounge, enjoy your cocktail and the marvelous views all around you for
the one-hour sail.
Cruises depart from both sides of the harbour from Central Pier 9 and TST Pier 1. Evening sailings start from the TST pier, so try to board from
this end rather than Central to have first pick for a good place.
How Much? Evening Cruise Tour in Chinese Junk Boat with Wine US$ 27
*Symphony of Lights Sail with drink US$ 40
When? 6:30 pm, 7:30 pm*, 8:30pm, 9:30 pm, 10:30 pm
