As much as we love a good date night, sometimes it’s just too big an ask to get out of the house after a long day. Enter the day-time date!
Rather than settle in for a good meal (although you can always do that too!) grab your other half and set off for a romantic little Hong Kong adventure. Keep the spark alive by taking turns to plan some quality Hong Kong time and give yourselves something to talk about at the dinner table. Here’s some inspiration to get you started!
Get Back To Nature
As much as we love taking the kids on our hiking adventures, there’s something really nice about tackling some longer trails or venturing a little further off the beaten path with your other half. Make a full day of it and explore the white sandy beaches of Tai Long Wan or make it a “real” date by choosing a trail that ends in a feast.

Get Your Culture Fix At A Museum Or Art Exhibition
There’s no doubt the kids’ exhibits at the Science Museum are fantastic, but taking the time to really browse the halls of M+, the galleries of the Hong Kong Museum of Art or the priceless artefacts of the Palace Museum is best done with adult company.

Explore The Streets Of Kowloon
The frantic streets of Mong Kok, Jordan, Sham Shui Po and Kowloon City are wonderful to explore but can be overwhelming with little ones in tow. Save it for a day out with your partner. Pick up things you didn’t know you needed at the street markets and eat your way around town on cheap and cheerful roadside snacks. For an added romantic touch, swing by the Flower Markets and pick up a fresh bouquet.
Hit The Water
A day at the beach post-kids just isn’t what it used to be. Reminisce on the good ol’ days by packing the sunscreen and a good book and laying your towel on a quiet stretch of sand together. Or, get adventurous and rent a kayak or SUP to explore the stunning coastline around Sai Kung, Stanley or nearby islands.

Book A Couples Spa
It will be much easier to get into a romantic mood with a little relaxation. If you’re still dealing with interrupted sleep at home, take the chance to relax together with a curated spa experience. We’ve got our eye on the Urban Wellness Escape for couples at the Four Seasons which includes 30 minutes in the private couples’ treatment room with a glass of champagne, a 30-minute body scrub and your choice of a 90-minute massage of facial.
