How do the locals spend their weekends?

Many Hong Kong people now embrace a two-hour living cycle. Whether you are a fan of outdoor activities or enjoy more laid-back pursuits indoors, you will find everything to keep you entertained within your reach.

Hikers love to challenge themselves on Dragon's Back and Lamma Island. For biking, Tai Wai, Sha Tin and Tai Po offer many scenic routes. And if you love sun and sand, Repulse Bay and Shek O will no doubt become your favourite hangouts.

If you prefer to stay indoors, you can always catch a movie at a cinema near you. There is one in almost every city neighbourhood so you are always conveniently close to the latest blockbuster. Art lovers can easily spend a day gallery-hopping in Central while history buffs can learn all about Hong Kong’s past at one of the many museums.

While credit cards are accepted in most of these places, it’s best to bring some money when you explore suburban areas, since some local stores would accept cash only.
