You’ve figured out the “who” you want to spend the rest of your life with, now it’s time to pin down the “where”. Hong Kong boasts a number of swoon-worthy venues with a view, beautiful beaches and picturesque parks. Here are a couple romantic places in Hong Kong to get you started.
Victoria Peak Garden
Ride the tram up to the peak and take a scenic stroll to Victoria Peak Garden. Scattered around the lush green lawn are charming pagodas, gazebos and delightful Victorian features like sundials. You couldn’t ask for a better scene to set up a romantic afternoon picnic. When it gets dark, you can watch the city light up 300 metres above the Victoria Harbour.

Tai O Lookout
The glass-roofed Tai O Lookout, perched on the first floor of the Tai O Heritage Hotel, boasts a breathtaking panoramic view of the South China Sea and is surrounded by gorgeous greenery. Its colonial decor and wood-carved furniture will transport you back in time, making it the perfect spot to reminisce your memories together over an exquisite meal before you ask to spend the rest of your lives together.
Between hiding the ring, preparing your speech, hiring a photographer and choosing the perfect venue, there’s quite an extensive list of tasks to be taken care of. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a helping hand? Leave it up to the professionals to take the stress out of the occasion so that you can focus all your attention on the person that matters the most.
