Take a Long Weekend Getaway on a Yacht in Hong Kong


If you are an expat working in Thailand, Malaysia or even Hong Kong, there’s a great way to send the next long weekend by chartering a yacht from Friday to Sunday and exploring the small bays around the main harbour.

Here is a sample itinerary for a yacht charter in Hong Kong, for two days and two nights.

Friday – Take in a cruise at Victoria Harbour, and as the sun sets, you sail closer to the amazing Disneyland fireworks show, where you can enjoy the spectacular fireworks display before sailing to an up market residential development by the name of Discovery Bay, where you will moor for the night.

Saturday – The traditional fishing villages of Cheung Chao and Tai-O make for a very interesting day, as you gain in insight into the lives of the fishing community that live in special houses built on stilts. Cheung Chao Island is a very popular venue located between Lantau and Lamma Islands, where you can relax on pristine sandy beaches with clear, blue water, and enjoy fine seafood dining in the evening. Here are a few tips when chartering a yacht, which you will find useful.

Sunday – Lamma Island is a beautiful area, with Yung Shue Wang the main settlement that consists of timber houses and a few famous restaurants and local stores attractively decorated. Then head to Sok Kwu Bay, which is a traditional fishing village where life is unchanged for centuries. Then, as evening approaches, you make your way back to the marina, having had an amazing weekend sightseeing around the coves of Hong Kong.

Other Attractions

Aside from the above itinerary, there are other great venues for sightseers, with Sai Kung and the Kao Sai Fish Farm, where you can catch a wide range of fish, or simply observe them in a natural environment. You can ask the captain to moor off one of the quiet islands, where you can sip your favourite cocktail and watch an incredible sunset.
