Firstly can I just say, where the bloody hell has the romance and chivalry gone in Hong Kong?
I don’t mean to generalize here but I can count on one hand, the amount of times most of my friends have been on dates (and they’re a good-looking & intelligent bunch!) Hong Kong just seems to lack in the dating department. These days the most romantic gesture to come out of our generation is being bought a Jager Bomb at Carnegies and thats if you’re lucky!
So for all you closet romantics/horny buggers out there, I’ve constructed a short list of fun dates to take your significant other on:-
Hong Kong Park – Have a wander round this $398 million venue and gander at the waterfalls, Koi fish, Tai Chi Garden, Olympic Square, The Vantage Point and the Aviary . There’s an extremely relaxing atmosphere circulating this park and so much to do. For the calm couples. (http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/parks/hkp/en/)
Art Jam – Located in Central & TST. Art Jam provides the canvas, paint and materials for a chance to show off your skills! Allows you to B.Y.O.B. And remember ……with wine, comes inspiration. For the creative couples. (http://www.artjamming.com)
Laser quest – Right. I know most of you girls wouldn’t dare suggest laser tag but hear me out…. Running around a dark room trying to shoot your opponents, is somewhat mysteriously exciting and sexy. Also a great way to develop team work between the two of you! This laser tag company is also mobile, so they can come to you. For the adventurous couples . (http://www.lasertag.com.hk/)
Aqua Lunar – English afternoon tea on an exotic Chinese Junk, dim lighting with the view of the harbor. Couldn’t think of anything better. (Unless its raining of course) For the extremely romantic couples.
Cheung Chau – Hop on over to Pier 5 ferry terminal located in Sheung Wan to this buzzing traditional fishing village. Rent bikes, taste great seafood, shop for handmade crafts and visit hidden caves. Just get lost. For the couples who love to explore.
