Here are just a few of our favorite things to do in Hong Kong.

Friday: Movie night

Part of the beauty of renting a furnished apartment is that you can relax and unwind at home. Fire up your new-to-you TV and stream Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee’s final – and arguably best – film. There are a number of shots of Hong Kong in the movie, including the secluded Tsing Shan Monastery.

Have dinner delivered from one of Hong Kong’s outstanding restaurants or make yourself something delicious in your very own kitchen.

Saturday: Sail away

Boat tours are incredibly popular in Hong Kong, and for good reason! Scenic Victoria Harbour is the third-largest bay in the world, and there is no better way to see it than on a leisurely cruise.

You can take a half-day boat tour of the city or wait until after dark for a harbor lights cruise. There are also specialty excursions you can book, including dim-sum cruises and boat tours to secluded beauty spots.

Sunday: A dose of history

Situated in Hong Kong’s Kowloon district, the stately Hong Kong Museum of History is a perfect introduction to your new hometown.

The museum’s permanent collection includes some stunning artworks and artifacts, as well as stunning reconstructions of historical settings. Some of the exhibits are highly interactive, and there’s even a full-sized fishing junk on display.

It’s best to arrive early, since the museum is limiting a smaller number of visitors at a time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Whether you’re one of our guests or haven’t yet embraced flexible living, we hope these ideas will help you enjoy your first weekend in Hong Kong. Are you still renting the old-fashioned way? Find out more about the Blueground experience.
