Are you looking for new and inspiring date ideas in Hong Kong? Take it from us; you're not alone. The dating game is notoriously tough here. And even when you're lucky enough to meet someone that doesn't fall into one of the usual unappealing Tinder types, there's the risk of it turning stale when you end up at the same restaurants (as much as we do love them) time and time again. So, to help you stand out from the pack, here's a list of uniquely romantic things you can do in Hong Kong that will make your date extra memorable. You can thank us later.

RECOMMENDED: If you prefer a more relaxing date, visit one of these romantic places in Hong Kong instead. 

Prices and availability for experiences below may be subject to change in accordance with the city's current social distancing guidelines. Please call ahead before making a booking.

Bubble glamping

Things to do Lantau Island

Strawberry picking

Things to do Yuen Long

A farm is not the most attractive-sounding date venue, but when you add strawberries to the equation, that's a whole different story. Long Ping Strawberry Park in Yuen Long is one of Hong Kong's largest fruit farms. There are around 10 species of strawberries to pick from, each varying in size, sweetness, texture, and colour. And if strawberries aren't your thing, there are plenty of other local farms in Hong Kong where some of them offer other fruit and vegetable picking activities, planting courses, farming workshops, as well as guided tours.

Price: Entrance to the farm is free. Strawberries and other fruits are charged per pound (around $90 per pound).
