We always hear and see of the Victoria Peak on various social media platform, but how many of you know that there are several other hiking trails you and bae can embark on?

From the breathtaking scenery from The Lion Rock above, to even traditional villages, Hong Kong has many surprises for fun-loving nature-lovers (pun not intended).

Standing in Yuen Leung, Lau Fau Shan is one of several villages in the outskirts of Hong Kong, showcasing fishermen’s lifestyle and also boosting renown oyster farms.

2. For the Penny Stretchers

Hong Kong is known for its street food carts and cheap eateries available around every corner. Moreover, the best way to immerse in the local culture is to make a trip to the wet markets, where lower prices and freshness are guaranteed!

Located in Tai On Building is this family-run little cart noodles serving comfort food for many locals. And the Sai Wan Ho wet market is just around the corner!

3. For the Artsy Fartsy

Living up to its metropolitan status, Hong Kong has many museums, galleries and performing arts institutions that are open for public.

Also, if you are travelling during the festive periods, being in Hong Kong would present you the great opportunity to be part of many lively celebrations around the city! Imagine a spectacular fireworks display by the Victoria Harbour right over the heads of you, bae and the stunning Hong Kong skyline.

4. For the Urbanites

Humans are creatures of habit. Many urbanites would be pleased to know that Hong Kong as an urbanised city also has many shopping malls (Times SquareIFC Mall) and restaurants serving a wide array of cuisines. Sound just like Singapore doesn’t it? Except there is a much smaller chance to run into your dreaded gossipy neighbours or colleagues now. And guess what? Most goods and services in Hong Kong are tax free! No worries about rushing to the airport earlier to claim tax refunds!
