Start making plans for the beginning of summer!

Time Out Hong Kong

June is a great month in Hong Kong. Sunshine is in abundance, and the temperature is cool(ish) enough to keep us from melting into the ground, which makes it the perfect time to hit up hidden terrace dining spots and beachside bars and restaurants. Even if the weather is a bummer, there are still plenty of indoor activities to keep you entertained. Nature lovers can also gear up for some of the most intriguing hikes in Hong Kong, or give yourself a challenge and try out an extreme sport – so, are you ready for some fun under the sun?

RECOMMENDED: If you're all about great food and drink, then look no further than our top picks of foodie events to check out this month!

Best things to do in Hong Kong in June

  • Tseung Kwan O

The popular Japanese cartoon character Butt Detective (yes, he has a literal butt for his face) has landed in Hong Kong and he’s here to find the missing 'golden pearl milk tea'! From June 25 to September 26, the Butt Detective exhibition invites all to investigate through seven curated spaces and rack their brains around challenging missions and fun games. From the Butt Detective Agency to the Wankoro Police Station and the Hoo Hoo Museum, scour high and low for hidden clues, jot down every detail in your very own detective notebook, and help the Butt Detective gather all the evidence to catch the culprit – don’t forget to use your special ‘magnifying glass’ too! 

At the end of your journey, stop by the pop-up store and pick up some exclusive merch like toys and key rings, storybooks, stickers and stationery, accessories, along with special cookies and cold-brew teas. Having previously attracted almost 100,000 visitors when showcasing in Taipei, The Butt Detective Exhibition is one not to be missed.

A schedule of entertainment has been lined up for summer at The Lawn, including live music with DJs, bands, and artists performing on stage, along with sports showings of tennis grand slams, rugby tours and football championships, which will change up on a daily basis.

But that’s not all, as you can also entertain yourselves with the variety of lawn games to play. From boules, putterball, and pétanque to giant Jenga, cornhole and croquet, there’s something for every family, friend, couple, or group, to try. Each pod can book their own private session and then just sit back and relax between games.
