What is on your Hong Kong bucket list?

Whether you are planning your exit now or you are fresh-off-the-boat, everyone has a Hong Kong bucket list.  It might be an actual, paper to-do list or it could be just visions in your head of what you should have seen and done during your time here.

As this is “leaving season,” we wanted to collate all of your “musts” into one place so you can get busy!  What have you done already?  What are we missing?

  • See the pink dolphins before they are gone (Hong Kong Moms get a discount!  http://hongkongmoms.com.hk/offers-directory/)
  • Take a cruise on the Aqua Luna boat from Central to Stanley on a weekend afternoon
  • Hike the Dragon’s Back trail; end up in Shek O for lunch at the Black Sheep
  • Sip your tea with a scone and clotted cream at The Peninsula’s afternoon tea
  • Test your luck at the races in Happy Valley on Wednesday night; grab a beer at the tents and cheer on your horse!
  • Hire a junk boat for the day and explore Hong Kong’s many islands and hidden beaches; or just moor up off of South Bay Bach
  • Put your feet up with some foot reflexology; book-in for 50 minutes but you will end up asking for 75 min and never wanting to leave
  • Circumnavigate the Peak on Lugard Road and then take the Peak tram down
  • Stock up on tchotchke and souvenirs at Stanley Market
  • Get your measurements taken for some tailor-made clothes in Shenzhen
  • If you’ve done it already, do it one more time – it doesn’t get old.  Ride the Star ferry, again.
  • Cozy up to a friend who has a membership to the colonial chic China Club
  • Reserve a glass-bottomed cable car to the Big Buddha
  • Ferry over to Lamma Island for salt and pepper squid fresh-out-of-the-tank
  • Leave your comfort zone and join a foodie tour
  • If you aren’t afraid of heights, sip your cocktail on a clear night at Ozone – the rooftop bar at ICC
  • One of the best (the best?) soup dumplings around.  Watch them made at Din Tai Fung.
  • Stock up on ribbons galore at Sham Shui Po
  • Board a double decker bus and sit in the front row out to Repulse Bay; hop off for lunch at Spices in Repulse Bay and soak up the colonial vibe.
  • Walk the promenade from Deep Water Bay to Repulse Bay; stop for a coffee at The Pulse or stay for lunch
  • Have your fill of sushi at Zuma’s famous brunch
  • Board a sampan for a tour of Aberdeen harbour
  • Pitch your tent on Tai Long Wan or Sai Wan beach and try to spot some stars
  • Stay the night at the Disneyland Hotel and watch the fireworks show from your room
  • Eat at a Dai Pai Dong; stop for a milk tea
  • Jump on a tram and ride it until it stops
