Hong Kong ranks among the top world-renowned travel destinations. To those who have ever visited the place, we all agree that the stay was fun with lots of places to make each second and penny spent worth. Funny enough, the city is sluggish in the morning hours as proved by the number of businesses open. However, things switch to the fast lane and by the early night, the place is buzzing with activity.
Here the people are friendly and the diverse culture makes the coming together even better. There is a majority of night clubs, bars, and restaurant in central part of the island. If you are new, you will be spoilt of options. Unlike a majority of other major tourist cities, Hong Kong has gone an extra mile to offer family friendly night activities such as watching the iconic symphony of lights. Are you party monster? Hong Kong has you covered. Here is a quick look at places to consider partying or visiting once the sun goes down on the island.
Symphony of lights from Golden Bauhinia
This iconic sight is so amazing making it the ‘world’s largest permanent light and sound show’-Guinness book of records. It’s so difficult to miss. Here you experience the Victoria Harbour lit from a coordinated 45 major buildings. Tsim Sha Tsui is also a good vantage point.

Club PLAY, Vollar, and Dragon-I are among the fun-filled dancing clubs that dot the island of Hong Kong. Lan Kwai Fong, for example, has clubs every place you turn your head. Majority of these clubs run until the wee hours, more so during the weekend or when a popular DJ is on the decks.

In Hong Kong, you don’t necessarily have to club to get the best night of your life. If you prefer something more laid back for a proposal or honeymoon, then the night cruise around the Victoria Harbour will serve you right. To catch the ‘symphony of lights’ you need to time your cruise at between 20:00-20:30 hours.
As stated earlier business in Hong Kong offer more during the night. Temple Street Night market offers a variety of fantastic and cheap good. Need a souvenir to remind you of the visit? This is the place to shop.

Most of the visitors do their tour during the day. It’s somewhat understandable considering how overwhelming the night life can get. To make sure that you do not miss out, all you have to do is book a night tour guide to take you iconic tourist destination and experience it at night. The night lights make it unique, something unique that a lot of people misses out.
The best thing about Hong Kong is that almost all areas have free Wi-Fi. This means you can easily navigate on your own. Public transport is cheap and readily available to make commuting easier.
