Fantastic locations in Hong Kong
Hong Kong Observation Wheel
Get a fresh perspective on Victoria Harbour by riding the eye-catching Hong Kong Observation Wheel. Towering 60m high, the wheel is both a thing of beauty and an incredible scenic experience. Often seen radiating a dreamy magenta glow, it's built to end date nights memorably, but could just as easily offer some thrill-factor for kids.
Symphony of lights
At the heart of Hong Kong's nightlife is the Symphony of Lights, where an already impressive skyline of colour dances to the rhythm of the city. The enchanting show transitions through themes of awakening, energy, heritage, partnership and, finally, celebration. To experience the most memorable view, book a harbour boat cruise to catch the show, which is on every night at 8pm.
Cheung Chau fishing village
Cheung Chau Island is small, but brimming with ancient culture. Its fishing town is as active as ever, so pull up a chair by the waterside and taste the catch of the day. The village hums with local custom, which is invigorated by curious day-trippers from the mainland. If you're over on the island, be sure to visit the nearby temples, pavilions and beaches.
There's a million ways to see Hong Kong, but 'The Peak' is widely recognised as the most astonishing. Let the historical Peak Tram clank you up to Hong Kong's highest summit, from where you'll see natural beauty meet concrete brilliance. Be there for dusk and watch the dying sunlight transition to a dazzling neon glow. The Peak acts as a hub for further activity too, with relaxing walking tracks and restaurants.
Located on the east end of Hong Kong Island, Sugar Bar will provide you with acclaimed cocktails and a refreshing viewpoint of the city. Rooftop drinking has become a real Hong Kong thing, and with plush ottomans, wood tones and warm lighting, you won't find a better place to sip away the night. If you're into dance music, turn up late and hear the resident DJs complement the city's electric skyline.
Soak up the sun at Repulse Bay and indulge in upmarket treats. There are designer shops and award-winning restaurants lining the shoreline. Located on the southern part of Hong Kong Island, this bay is the ultimate urban beach - you get a resort vibe against a skyscraper backdrop.
Times Square Mall
230 stores strong, Times Square Mall is bright, bold and lathered in consumer glitz. You'll find fashion, electronics, toys and restaurants, all presented within a spectacular architectural vision. And there's no need to feel rushed. The mall is open until 10pm, so you can shop at your own tempo.
Cé La Vi Restaurant
Renowned for panoramic dining, inspired cocktails and a buzzing party area, Cé La Vi elevates Hong Kong's after-dark scene. Found at the peak of California Tower, you can guarantee an indulgent experience. Taste exquisite sushi, then swan outside and socialise at the Sky Deck, which is furnished with a jacuzzi for those who feel like a surreal dip.
