Hong Kong is known for many things: being the location for theme parks such as Disneyland and Ocean Park, having great food, and offering a fun shopping experience to travelers. What it isn’t really known for, however, is the romantic adventure it has in store for couples on holiday. While these attractions may be underrated, these provide lovebirds with plenty of opportunities to make cherished memories together. So what are you waiting for? Book your honeymoon or perhaps that much-longed-for second honeymoon in Hong Kong. Here are the best romantic places in Hong Kong for you and your loved one to choose from, to enjoy a heart-filled holiday.
1. Victoria Peak Garden
Located near the summit of Victoria Peak, this is a Chinese-style garden/park that provides visitors with fantastic views of the city. The experience practically becomes magical at night when the urban sprawl lights up. Pro tip: Victoria Peak Garden sees relatively few visitors as most travelers choose to spend more time at Victoria Peak itself, so if you want to veer away from the crowds to enjoy a romantic time together, this is a good option.

When planned well, Hong Kong Disneyland can also be the most romantic place in the world, and not just the happiest. You and your significant other can relive your childhood and make new memories by seeing your favorite characters come to life and going on the rides there. If you want to splurge on your trip, consider staying at the hotel in the park to complete your trip.

If you want to spend quiet time with your significant other, forget about the other beaches in Hong Kong and head on over to Chung Hom Kok Beach, a beautiful and relatively isolated beach near Stanley. There are barbecue pits there if you want to cook your food (just make sure to bring your own coal and food). The water there is safe for swimming, and there are lifeguards manning the area to ensure guests’ safety at all times.
