Street Art Hunting
When you walk around Hong Kong, you may get tired of all the uniform, tall buildings. HK Walls is bringing a breath of fresh air with their annual street arts festival where they ask local and international artists to pimp up certain neighborhoods. Their last edition was in Sham Shui Po, so venture out to a neighborhood you may not normally visit and enjoy these unique murals! Or if you want to check out the graffiti work on the top of this article, just head to Upper Station Street in Sheung Wan.
Tour in the Dark
Regarded as one of the most interesting museums in Hong Kong, Dialogue Experience, is an exhibition like no other. A visually-impaired tour guide will lead you through this pitch-black exhibition where you will experience the world with all your senses, but your eyes. The museum also provides dinners in the dark and special tours for couples.
Enjoy home-cooked food
Taste food from amateur chefs in their own home and meet new people. This is what startup PlateCulture is bringing to Hong Kong. As Hong Kong is an international city, the chefs are from everywhere so whether you feel like Indian, Korean or Chinese, there will be an option that matches your tastes. You’ll get an experience that’s both authentic and unique; a nice change from the usual restaurant dining.
