Our Favorite Strolls

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and Avenue of Stars

TST Promenade Views of Harbour

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

Hong Kong Park Stroll

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.

Views from Victoria Peak

Here's more:

Nan Lian Garden

Nan Lian Gardens

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

Views from Star Ferry

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:

Aberdeen Harbour at Dusk

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.

Contrary 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

Victoria Harbour and Aqua Luna Evening Sail

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? US$ 26 *Symphony of Lights Sail US$ 39

When? 6:30 pm, 7:30 pm*, 8:30pm, 9:30 pm, 10:30 pm
