I saw mummy kissing Santa Claus!
There’s something so romantic about the holiday season… Magic is in the air and what better way to get into the spirit of Christmas than with your sweetheart by your side? Hong Kong has some incredible spots for soaking up those special moments. Mistletoe or not, mamas, these are five sure fire places you’ll want to sneak a smooch with hubby this season! We’ve narrowed it down to just a couple of the most romantic places to steal a kiss under your very own private mistletoe with the probable background noises of the kiddos giggling from behind.
In my opinion, the Star Ferry makes for one of the best views of Hong Kong. I boarded for the first time within a week of arriving in the 852 and I’ll never forget the fabulous views, ridiculous skyline and those glitzy city lights from the water (there’s just something about being on a boat!).
There’s bound to be a mistletoe at the gangway, so prepare and pucker up, mamas! If you’re a sucker for a good view, there’s nothing better than this vantage point!
With all the excitement and prep for the holidays, a day trip is definitely necessary this December! Head to the Big Buddha and hop in a glass bottom cable car with your partner. The views of lush greenery and water passing underneath is truly worth the experience alone, and all the more reason to embrace it with the hubs – the perfect mistletoe moment! Get cosy and make it even more memorable by riding up at sunset for the most epic scenery. Perfect for that #insta shot!
There’s something about those dazzling views of the 852 from Victoria Peak, no matter the time of day or the season! Put the kids to bed early, and ride the Peak Tram up the mountain. Start the walk around the loop (hand in hand of course) and soak up the views. Could there be a more perfect mistletoe moment?
Put the sweats aside, get dolled up and step out into the night at Ozone, the highest bar in Hong Kong! Sip cocktails on the 118/F at the Ritz Carlton hotel whilst taking in the panoramic views of the city. You’re bound to feel the Christmas love! The ambiance will make you feel like the luckiest woman in the world – mistletoe vibes for sure.
Venture out into the wilderness for a December day family hike! Seize the natural beauty of Hong Kong and expect gorgeous views, which makes venturing into the cold more than worth it. There’s nothing like feeling on top of the world with the one you love! When the kiddos are not looking, sneak in for a surprise smooch with the hubs!
*Cue Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is You here,* smooch and swoon. Merry Christmas to all of the lovebirds near and far!
