Hong Kong is one of the best places to go to if you want something completely different from your day-to-day environment. However, many travelers today are probably used to the usual food-museum-landmark tour of Hong Kong. If you really want to get into the traveler spirit, it’s time to check out the following active holiday destinations in this grand city!

Car Racing

There’s this indoor racing ring in Hong Kong that lets you drive the car of your dreams. Be a Formula One Racer and have a choice between rides like Porsche, V8 Supercar, BMW, and others. You can go as fast as you can and race with your buddies and should you be bumped out of the race early, you can always enjoy the food and drinks served in the same establishment.

Surfing, Wakeboarding, Kiteboarding, and More

Name whatever water sport that uses a board and you’ve got it on offer in Hong Kong. Thanks to the large stretch of water near the city and their array of sporting equipment, you can easily sign up for classes and take full advantage of the Hong Kong coast. This should give you the kind of view very few people have seen of the city.


If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, try going rappelling. This sport essentially involves rapidly going down a cliff through the help of a rope. The beauty of this is that at high altitudes, you’ll be given a breathtaking view of Hong Kong and everything within the glorious city. There’s nothing like feeling the wind on your face and taking a picture of yourself with the Hong Kong sky in the background.


If heights are just too much for you, you can always try going hiking in Hong Kong. What you should know is that Hong Kong ranks 6th among the best hiking locations in the world. From their hiking environment, it’s hard to believe that the city is one of the most modern in the world. Amazing backdrops, a well-maintained environment, and a stunning array of green can be found in their hiking trails, giving you the chance to enjoy and exercise all at the same time.

Scuba Diving

No underwater life is exactly alike and with Hong Kong, you’ll be greeted by a different kind of biodiversity – far from the typical waters of the West. Well-preserved and home to some of the best reefs in the world, scuba diving in Hong Kong lets you get up close and personal with a colorful array of fish and coral breeds. You’ll find that there are numerous tourist services providing exactly this kind of attraction, giving you various choices on exactly how you want to enjoy the activity.

Of course, those are just some of the activities you can enjoy in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, most of the activities in this list are on the costly side – so make sure you’ve got your Hong Kong destinations well-planned out so you can make good use of your dollars. Make sure to check out Hong Kong’s famous wellness and massage spas to get some rest after plenty of activity, to be well rested before you head back home. As you can see there are plenty of reasons to visit Hong Kong, especially for people who are looking for a real adventure. One thing you can be sure though: this will be a vacation you’ll never forget.
