You might have been avoiding the outdoors since the onset of summer and when it’s time to go outside, it rains. But there are plenty of things to do in Hong Kong, even when the heavens have opened.
Lasermads is a great indoor laser tag centre where you do battle onboard a spaceship. If you want to act out your inner Sigourney Weaver in Alien, then this is the place to do it. It’s one of the best for high-tech equipment, imported from New Zealand, and it’s great fun for older kids as well as groups of friends.
Not quite a new phenomenon but a lot of fun either way, there are plenty of escape rooms located all over the city. LOST HK is one of the best, as they have a variety of rooms to suit all capabilities and ages. This is not only a great idea for an afternoon with friends, but it makes for a great team-building exercise with work colleagues too.
A trampoline park
Ryze Hong Kong is a huge indoor trampoline park that has over 7000 sq ft of trampolines for adults and kids to burn off some calories and beat the rain. Some are more challenging than others, not to say extreme, but there is a great ninja obstacle course that may tempt even the biggest of kids.
A jazz night
There are plenty of live music options in Hong Kong but Salon 10 has a great live jazz session, every Wednesday and Thursday. If Latin music is more your thing, not to worry because the musicians expertly combine the two to make a weekday evening particularly enjoyable.
Play mini golf
Indoor mini golf is a classic for when the rain is pouring down and you have no idea what to do with your friends or family. Strokes HK is the best, thanks to it’s two courses and restaurant at the end. Not just golf, this is also a lifestyle club which means that you can probably combine one or more activities during your day there.
A karaoke bar
Not just for the end of a night out, there are plenty of karaoke bars that are open during the day where you can sing a variety of Chinese and English pop. Many also serve food, so you can go for lunch, dinner or an afternoon snack. Red MR is a local favorite and you will be served food as soon as you walk in.
Play board games
A childhood classic can be relived in Hong Kong, thanks to Sweet and Fun Cafe, which has plenty of new and vintage board games which can be played as you enjoy a coffee. Extremely popular, come rain or shine, this is a great way to meet people and to pass a few hours reliving your youth or challenging your brain cells.
Located in Tsim Tsa Shui, you can now play VR with two different missions to complete at Sandbox VR. You can choose to battle zombies or mutants and is a great way to pass a rainy afternoon with a group of friends.
