What to Do in Hong Kong after Dark


As in other major cities, Hong Kong residents enjoy their downtime away from work and that includes taking over the city at night. There is no shortage of activities for night owls and by venturing out after dark you will get to see this metropolis from a different perspective.

Go to Lan Kai Fong

If you’re in the mood to party this area will not disappoint. It is located in the centre of the city and is home to a large array of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

Go High

Hong Kong boasts a breath-taking skyline and there is nothing quite like enjoying a drink while you enjoy a sundowner while gazing over stunning views of the city. Visit one of the sky bars in Hong Kong, grab a cocktail and relax. You can find some of the best views across the harbour to Kowloon.

Set Sail

Hong Kong is an exciting city yet if you’re looking for a more serene activity than moving to the beats on a dance floor, one of the best ways to relax is to take a night cruise. You can choose a boat trip for the whole family or make a date with your significant other while you sip on champagne.

Go to Temple Street Night Market

This is a must for any visitor or new resident. If you are looking for a bargain or simply want to browse this is the place to be. You will find many stalls offering all types of goods.

Be Amazed by Lights

You cannot miss the chance to see the stunning light and music show each night at 8pm. Go to either side of Victoria Harbour to truly enjoy the mastery of the light display. If you want the best view, get a spot at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade on the waterfront.

Go to the Races

If you want to spend a glamorous night betting on the fillies, head to the Happy Valley Racecourse. You can try your luck and place a bet or simply have a glass of champagne while backing your favourite.

Eat at a Dai Pai Dong

If you have had a busy night in town, stop by a dai pai dong (open-air food stall) in Sham Shui Po to recharge your batteries. Some of them are open throughout the night and you can enjoy pork chop noodles or a warm cup of milk tea until the early hours of the morning.

Look for Ghosts

The Wanchai Livelihood Museum (The Blue House) offers a night-time ghost tour. They will take you to different haunted spots and you will learn a lot about the story of Hong Kong thanks to these apparitions.
