If you’ve left Valentine’s Day date planning too late or you’re looking for a creative idea to swing for your significant other or lucky date, look no further than The Beat Asia’s guide to creative dates you can plan in the city for a wicked romantic time!
You CAN book a nice but expensive meal with your one true love at a restaurant to enjoy the day, or head down to Hong Kong’s most accessible beach at Repulse Bay to divulge in a luxury picnic with the help from local service Picnicking by Misaka, helping you with the planning process to deliver a tasty and Instagrammable soiree.
A date on Valentine’s Day is arguably incomplete with the absence of flowers. Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden in Yuen Long is a haven to stroll through and admire cherry blossoms, orchids, hydrangeas and azaleas that are dotted aroundthe 148-hectares of farm and gardens. Open to the public, grab your loved one to explore the well-kept flora and fauna in serenity.
Master the fundamentals of ceramics and pottery re-creating that pop culture touchstone scene from Ghost on Valentine’s Day at Half Corner Studio in Causeway Bay and Tsuen Wan, complete with a lasting souvenir for your date to rememberwith your DIY creations. Join an afternoon course to listen to professional instructors on clay throwing, slab-building, pinching, and coiling to sculpt your own artistic objects.
Now that we can, why not? You might have forgotten but The Venetian Macau is home to the largest recreation of Italy’s romantic city of Venice and its meandering canals where couples can enjoy romantic gondola rides being spun away on the water, before dipping into your wallet for luxury goods and bites.
I’ve ‘fallen’ for you and I can’t get up! Go on a couple's trip east to North Point’s Buns 2020, Hong Kong’s largest indoor roller-skating rink, spanning over 20,000 square foot and fitted with neon lighting for a retro 1980s-era photoshoot after to remember your cute date. Fear not if you fall over onto your knees, you can count on your special someone to help pick you back up.
If you’re the adventurous couple or looking to recruit a sporty type for your Valentine’s Day date, what better way than to venture along the 78-kilometer-long footpath of the Wilson Trail, flowing through Hong Kong Island’s deep country parks. Named after David Wilson, governor of Hong Kong from 1987 to 1992, revel in the scenic route he enjoyed throughout his life with a six-hour-long walk-in nature, followed by a dip in Tai Tam to end the day.
Look to the Cat Street market in Sheung Wan for a chance to host a special antiques treasure hunt with your loved one this Valentine’s Day. Head with a certain budget in mind and see who can purchase the most interesting. How about a race to find something borrowed, and something blue?
