Whether you’re looking for themed itineraries and local tours, dining deals or staycation packages, Hong Kong has it all.
We have to admit: cancelling our annual summer getaway wasn’t easy, but the more we look into spending the summer in Hong Kong, the more excited we are about it. After all, there’s nothing quite like rediscovering the place you call home. From bustling food markets to buzzing rooftop bars, there are so many ways to make the most of the 852.
Wondering where to start? If you’re in need of a little inspiration as you plan out the next few months, we recommend checking out Holiday at Home. Carefully curated with Hongkongers in mind, you’ll find nine themed walking itineraries, unique local tours and over 10,000 city-wide offers. Yes, you read that right!
With tourists at bay, this summer is the perfect time to tick off some of Hong Kong’s most popular attractions. From enjoying a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour at sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck (buy one, get two free) to a day at Ocean Park ($350 for adults; kids and elderly enter for free), you’ll find all the most tempting deals and discounts at your fingertips.
If you’re looking to explore the great outdoors, see if you can keep up with the wild side of Hong Kong. We love the sound of the day trip at Ma On Shan, featuring canyoning, rock climbing, abseiling and zip lining (things we’ve never done in Hong Kong!). Adrenaline still pumping? Take a snorkelling trip to Ninepin or head to Basalt Island, part of the UNESCO Global Geopark in Sai Kung, for a two-hour tour via speedboat.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be Hong Kong if it wasn’t for the food scene. Take your pick from tons of local bars and restaurants in the city – all with awesome dining and drink deals. You can expect 50% off promotions, buy-1-get-1 offers and complimentary add-ons, with restaurants including Beef & Liberty, Uptop Bistro & Bar, sen-ryo, Mezzo, Spasso Italian Bar Restaurant Terrace and more.
Last but not least, be sure to check out the staycation packages. With over 110 hotels to choose from, there’s something for every price-point and preference. To be honest, we’re happy with anywhere that has a breakfast buffet!
Our city is packed to the brim with hidden gems and underrated experiences. You could have lived here all your life and still only just scratched the surface. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there, support local businesses and make the most of your Hong Kong holiday.
