Things to do for Valentine’s Day

With only a few days ahead of Valentine’s Day, here are some ideas for couples who may decide to stay put in the city. 

Couples could book their staycation, romantic dinners, and special cocktails at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong as part of their “Romantic Getaway.”

This package will set you back HK$2,099 for two persons between Saturday, Feb. 11 to Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Moreover, couples wanting to discover the joy of making unique cocktail drinks can learn this new skill at the Bounty Entertainment & Sports Bar. Space is, however, limited since only 10 couples can be accommodated for each workshop.

Another activity is walking around the Sunday Market at the Discovery Bay Plaza. More than 100 merchants will provide goods to make Valentine’s day a moment to cherish.

Cheung Chau Island is another island that couples could visit. Head to the Wall of Hearts filled with rainbows, flowers, and self-portraits in the back of the island. It’s only a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal.

Unlike the padlocks that can be seen on bridges, this is a bright and colorful sight. Couples can also add their own self-portraits.

Other romantic places is a pet-friendly outdoor park in Mei Foo (800 Castle Peak Road). Bright Hilltop has eight themed zones for you and your furry friends. Visitors can enjoy their meals at designated picnic areas or relax in their zen area.

Another outdoor activity for couples is the Inspiration Lake, a short walk from Hong Kong Disneyland.

It’s a man-made lake that offers mountain views of Lantau Island. Couples can rent a pedal boat or ride a bike.

Couples may wine and dine at romantic restaurants like at Aqua where diners can enjoy picturesque views of Victoria Harbour.

Or they could experience a 180-degree view across central and Victoria Harbour at Plume. Their menu includes fresh oysters and caviar tart.
