Romantic places for dates in Hong Kong

  • Things to do
  • Lai Chi Kok

Located within the vicinity of Jao Tsung-I Academy in Mei Foo, Bright Hilltop is a pet-friendly outdoor park with eight themed zones and photo spots to explore. Visitors can enjoy a meal at the designated picnic area, let their dogs run wild in the agility park, or simply relax in their zen area. It's the perfect place for those who want to bring their fur babies along for a daytime date!

  • Things to do
  • Discovery Bay

Away from city noises, Discovery Bay pretty much has every element you need for a romantic date: expansive ocean views, a quiet beach, al fresco dining options, a beautiful white chapel, a beautiful park, and a whole lot more. Visit before sundown to soak in those golden rays for an extra touch of romance.

  • Things to do
  • Yuen Long

Ha Pak Nai is perfect for couples seeking a romantic sunset that doesn’t involve a sweat dripping, mood-ruining hike up Lantau’s Sunset Peak. Picture perfect, Ha Pak Nai is a shallow beach in the far northwest New Territories surrounded by mangroves where you can watch the sun go down over the shimmering water. If you need more inspirations on where to catch the sunset in Hong Kong, visit our list here.

  • Kwun Tong

Revamped from a public cargo working area where waste paper recycling used to run their businesses, this waterfront boardwalk is a small oasis away from the busy district of Kwun Tong. Though it's only about one km long, the promenade offers spectacular views of Hong Kong Island East and Victoria Harbour's panoramas. Unique art installations in mechanical cranes and waste paper bundles can be found along the corridor as a tribute to the former landscape. And with the help of dazzling light and mist effects, the installation really lights up the promenade at night.

  • Kwun Tong

Lei Yue Mun is the place to be for a slice of old Hong Kong. Along the coastline sits a small lighthouse that gives way to a stunning view of Victoria Harbour, making it an excellent place to capture the sunset during the golden hour. From the lighthouse, walk along the waterfront towards the Old Lei Yue Mun Quarry, where you'll discover old stone houses, historic ruins, and vast green spaces that provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic day out.

  • Peng Chau

Head to Peng Chau for a romantic getaway that will make you forget about the city. Navigate through the narrow streets and alleyways and explore everything from a leather factory-turned-art garden and a long-abandoned matchstick factory to quirky cafes and local eateries. You can even head up to Finger Hill and take in views of the Tsing Ma Bridge and Disneyland. Whatever your plans are, it'll be a romantic day well spent on the island.

A charming colonial-era building, this hotel makes for a sweet ’n’ slushy staycation away from the city. Formerly the Tai O Police Station, the hotel is steeped in history. The area is a good base from which to explore Tai O fishing village. Take a boat trip, and try to catch sight of Hong Kong’s elusive pink dolphins.

  • New Territories

Also known as grass island, this quaint spot sits off the coast of Sai Kung Country park. With its lush green hills, wandering cows, and population of merely a hundred it's a great spot for couples yearning for solitude and some fresh air. Head over there to enjoy a breezy hike during the daytime and enjoy the panoramic views. Be sure to gorge on some delicious seafood before you head back home.

  • Things to do
  • The Peak

Not too far from the maddening crowds of The Peak Tram terminus is the Peak Garden. Like a stately English home, twisting paths navigate around lush lawns, pagodas, and gazebos, where you can spot plenty of Victorian features such as sundials and wrought iron. Of course, there is also the incredible vista – especially at night – of our amazing city to get lost in, making it a perfect spot for a romantic picnic.

  • Things to do
  • West Kowloon

If you're looking for a prime spot for scenic sunset views of the Victoria Harbour, look no further than the West Kowloon Art Park. Prepare a delicious picnic spread and find a spot on the Great Lawn of the Art Park and enjoy the dramatic view of the harbour. If you want to stay active, rent a bike and cycle along the seafront for a romantic sunset ride.
