Nightlife

Energetic Hong Kong knows how to party and does so visibly and noisily. Drinking venues run the gamut from British-style pubs through hotel bars and hipster hang-outs, to karaoke bolt-holes aimed at a young Chinese clientele. – Lonely Planet

Hong Kong tends to have separate districts for whatever it is you’re looking for, and the nightlife is no exception. Head to Wan Chai for sports bars and British pubs, SOHO for high-end bars, and Lan Kwai Fong for clubs and dancing – and that’s just a few of the areas on offer on Hong Kong Island. There are thousands of hidden away areas that you’ll discover!

Markets

In Hong Kong, you can dress a bride, redo a house and amuse a child one street at a time. The South China practice of grouping similar businesses on one street means you can do much more: goldfish, birds, clothes, electronics and shoes – if it’s worth shopping, it has a street here.  – Discover Hong Kong

Markets in Hong Kong operate at all hours of the day, with some not opening until 4 or 5pm because they stay open so late. You can find most anything as long as you know where to go, and prices are very reasonable – if you don’t mind bargaining.

Hiking and walks

There’s a beautifully rural world within a hiking boot’s throw of Hong Kong’s downtown. A dragon’s back, deserted beaches, volcanic landscapes, feng shui woods and remote temples await your discovery. – Discover Hong Kong

There are hundreds of beautiful walks all around Hong Kong, featuring varying levels of difficulty, and all types of terrain. This extremely popular weekend activity has been made easy thanks to websites such as Hike Hong Kong, that offer step-by-step guides on all sorts of different hikes – how to get there, how long it will take, etc.
