You may call it usual, but it is the location and of course , the special occasion that you are celebrating! Sai Kung – with its most beautiful beach will make a perfect getaway – if you can first get to it after an easy hike. The only white sand beach in HK, head to the area of Tai Long Wan – Big Wave Bay for a sunny picnic date that will never be forgotten! What’s more – you two can hold hands and take on a cliff jump! Another option could be Cheung Chau, about 45 minutes from the Central pier by ferry, which is a unique place to experience the Hong Kong culture and village life. An escape from reality as such, there is a lot that this tiny island will offer you – solace and romance definitely being one of them!

3. Cycling in Hong Kong

Exploring the city on two wheels can be quite interesting and a good way to take in the striking backdrops and cultural atmosphere. Options are quite endless but the path from Tai Wai to Tai Mei Tuk is probably the most well known- and least off the beaten track with signposts and snack stops that punctuate the generally flat and well paved path. Or if you rather an outlying island, Cheung Chau is small, car-free and full of bikes, which makes it the ideal place to explore on two wheels! For a good workout that takes in some of south Lantau’s beautiful scenery by bike, follow the road out of Mui Wo, up to Nam Shan, Pui Wo and as far as Cheung Sha beach which covers some hilly stretches. Bike rental is quite easy and cost effective so all you got to do is take your pick !


4. Treasure Hunt

5. Kayaking

Water sure has a way of bringing you closer and that is why we are recommending Kayaking! Take advantage of the beautiful and pristine waters and rediscover the city in an experience that you both will enjoy. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department runs five water sports centers in the New Territories and Hong Kong Island that offer a host of activities for water sports enthusiasts.

While rental fees are cheap and locales are scenic, you need a  “Kayak 3-Star Award” (This certificate can only be gained after undertaking a three-day training course at one of the water sports centers. The training fee is small, only HK$30 per day, but time intensive, comprising 24 hours of training in total).

You could also check out private water sports centres or head to  Hoi Ha Wan – that is more adventurous and private! Guided Kayaking trips are also available for beginners so you can check Kayak + Hike in Sai Kung.


6. Flight Experience

You are the pilot and she is your co- pilot as you both prepare to conquer the skies this Valentines Day. Welcome aboard the  high fidelity Boeing 737-800 Flight Simulators where the clouds will bow down to you (well, almost) as your first officer takes you through a flight lesson! But don’t get lost in appreciating the beauty of your company because you need to manage your airspeed, maintain your altitude and watch your heading. You need to be aware of any other traffic in the area, monitor a dazzling array of screens and indicators, and complete the real-life aircraft checklists! I can already feel the adrenaline pumping!
