Romance All Around
Lovers are spoilt for choice in Hong Kong. Romantic days might start
with a champagne breakfast in a luxurious hotel room or suite with a
view to take your breath away. Many establishments offer special
honeymoon packages that include little luxuries such as limousine
service, flower and fruit baskets and much more. All guests are
tempted to take advantage of deluxe amenities such as en suite
jacuzzis, 24-hour room service, elegant and intimate restaurants and
electrifying nightclubs, health spas and swimming pools. And later in
the day? Imagine the two of you relaxing on the deck of a cruiser,
watching the sun set over world-famous Victoria Harbour. Or strolling
along a white-sand beach bounded by lush green mountains and the South
China Sea. You might wish to have your fortune told in the pavilions
of serene, incense-filled temples. Hong Kong's remarkable scenery and
attractions mean you'll never run out of romance.
