1. The Aqua Luna II
Chinese junk boat, the Aqua Luna II sails around Victoria Harbour displaying the magnificent Chinese icon from the Ming Dynasty – the imperial blue and white dragon. In the evening, guests can relax on lounge beds while drinking cocktails and enjoying Hong Kong’s shining skyline; the day-time hop-on-hop-off discovery tour offers plenty of opportunities for Instagram snaps.
2. Temple Street Night Market
Traders and fortune tellers alike gather around the Tin Hau temple as the sun goes down. The buzzing street has appeared in many movies set in Hong Kong and with incredible street food and a brilliant vibe, you’ll recreate your screen-worthy moment in no time. Lights, camera, action!
3. Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong
For views of the famous Victoria Harbour and the city’s skyline, head to the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel. You don’t even have to book a room to get that Instagramable shot – simply visit one of their 10 dining outlets for a bite to eat. A meal at two Michelin-star Pierre (below) offers breathtaking views such as this one.
4. Cé La Vi Hong Kong
For an excellent view from within the city, Cé La Vi is a great option, day or night. The Sky Deck offers 360-degree views of the surrounding skyscrapers and is an excellent choice to start the day with yoga, or see in the evening with a few drinks during their Sunset Sessions above the Lan Kwai Fong neighbourhood.
With its floor-to-ceiling windows (main photo), this venue in Tsim Sha Tsui offers some of the best views of Hong Kong island. Located at One Peking, the concept by restaurateur David Yeo has been recreated in London and Beijing, but nothing is quite like its home in Hong Kong. While enjoying the best of Japanese and Italian dishes, visitors get a 180-degree view of the skyline which makes it the ideal social media post.
