Picnic In The Park
Hong Kong is full of hidden picnic spots that are perfect for laying out a blanket. Pack yourself a basket full of your favourite treats (don’t forget the cake and bubbly!), or let the professionals do the hard work – favourites like Invisible Kitchen and Rajasthan Rifles offer great picnic hampers that you can order and enjoy on the day.
A Private Dinner
After a more intimate affair? There are a number of well-established and emerging private kitchens sprinkled around the city that will surely make your day a memorable one. A lovingly set table, dishes made specially for your and your guests, and no hassle (read: dishes to be washed), the dinner party of your dreams awaits.
Drinks With A View
End your day on a high note atop one of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers, with a cocktail in hand. We’ve got plenty of rooftop bars to choose from, so get ready to take in that million-dollar harbour view and toast to a fabulous year ahead!
Book A Staycation
A room with a view, fluffy robes, a mini bar, breakfast buffets, spas and infinity pools. What more could you want? Whether you’re rooming with your besties, significant other, furry friend, or are booking a solo stay, your city staycation options are virtually endless. For a more unique experience, check out these houseboats and holiday villas, or consider glamping!
Hit The Beach
Grab your bathers and SPF and get some sand between your toes! Barbecue pits, a bit of shade and kayaks for rent? Whatever you require, our guide to Hong Kong’s best beaches will have you set for a fun day in the sun. And if you’re in no rush to head back to the city, why not end your night at one of these beachside bars or restaurants?

Disneyland, Ocean Park Or Water World
How do you pick between the three? It’s hard to beat “The Happiest Place On Earth” (especially now with its new spectacular fireworks show!), but how do you say no to a free ticket to Ocean Park? Both are solid choices – on a sweltering summer’s day though, Water World might take the cake.
Organise A Junk Party
Born in the summertime? A junk party seems like a no-brainer. Opt for a day trip and spend the afternoon lounging on inflatables, or book in an all-inclusive night cruise around the harbour. With tons of companies to choose from (check our ultimate junk guide for a helping hand), you’re bound to find one that’ll float your boat.

Channel your inner Whitney and sing your heart out at one of the city’s karaoke hotspots. Our go-tos include RedMR, with locations on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, and Filipino karaoke restobar Junels in Sai Ying Pun.

Celebrate in true Hong Kong fashion by booking a vintage-style ding ding and brace yourself for the ultimate night on the town courtesy of HK Tramways. With a maximum capacity of 30 to 40 people (depending on tram type), the party trams can be hired for a minimum of two hours (starting at $1,300 per hour), with catering options also available on request!
