“A city park for a quick recharge with some greens amidst the urban forest of Causeway Bay and Wanchai.”

Park
“One of the biggest parks on the Hong Kong Islans. Just take an MTR ride to Causeway Bay MTR station. If you go there on Sundays, please take in mind that it is a day-off of domestic helpers in Hong Kong who also love to spend their spare time in the park. Generally it is usually busy on a Sunday afternoon.”

“When you get tired of the "classic" HK skyline, try a different angle - Sugar is the more lowkey equivalent of some of the more popular rooftop bars in Central. Sunny Sunday afternoons are best enjoyed with a margarita in your hand!”

Gastropub

“One of the best restaurants in Tai Hang. Unusual dishes, tasty food from east to west. A gastropub concept that focuses on a fine selection of beers and approachable dishes meant for sharing among guests. Second Draft occupies the ground floor of the Little Tai Hang development, and it’s notably spacious: with a horseshoe-shaped bar on one side and tables set against the large windows. The green and white colour scheme (a tribute to the Star Ferry) is completed with tiled flooring and bilingual signs stencilled throughout the dining room. ”

“Hong Kong's harbor dazzles with neon at night, but the synchronized Symphony of Lights laser show takes the nightly spectacle to another level. Cruise Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour aboard a traditional Chinese sightseeing junk and enjoy an uninterrupted view of this dazzling light show for an unforgettable evening in Hong Kong. On your 1.5-hour evening cruise around Hong Kong's harbor you'll enjoy unlimited free drinks from the open bar while you watch one of the world's greatest lightshows unfold. The highlight of your evening harbor cruise is the 20-minute Symphony of Lights show, a spectacular display of laser beams bouncing off 33 key skyscrapers on both sides of the harbor. Acc”
