How to explore Hong Kong’s buzziest neighborhood from day to night

Shopping, dining, tranquil nature and dizzying views – if Hong Kong was already known for its chock-full of things to do, then Causeway Bay is its very own microcosm packed into just over 0.2 square kilometers, with something new for everyone on each visit. Make the most of your day in Causeway Bay with our day-to-night itinerary below.



Start your day with a breakfast of champions: experience a classic Hong Kong-style breakfast at Café Matchbox, beloved for its Instagrammable retro interiors, generous portions of breakfast noodles and Hong Kong-style French toast. Post-meal, head over to verdant Victoria Park, Hong Kong Island’s largest park, for a leisurely stroll and some people-watching before the day’s pace speeds up.



Continue your walk across to the waterfront in time for the Noonday Gun Salute at 12pm sharp, a daily timekeeping tradition since the 1860s where a traditional naval artillery piece fires a one-shot salvo to mark midday. Then, venture down the new Revitalised Typhoon Shelter Precinct, where you can hop on board a traditional “Walla-Walla” boat to explore the typhoon shelter’s waters, visit the 70-year-old Triangular Island Goddess of Tin Hau Shrine of Peace and floating market frequented by Hong Kong’s houseboat dwellers.

Grab a quick lunch back in the thick of Causeway Bay. Hysan Place’s newest lifestyle hub URBANHOOD, located on its two basement floors, offers a wealth of relaxed food options. Try Cooley Oysters for fresh Irish oysters and seafood mains, devour crisp potstickers at The Pot Spot, enjoy a healthy poke bowl at Peek-a-poke and more.



Now, it’s time for some shopping – and just upstairs from lunch. Beauty and wellness lovers should make a beeline for DFS Hong Kong, Causeway Bay (Beauty) to discover the DFS beauty edit at the brand new Beauty Collective zone. Here you can find more than 20 brands showcasing luxury favorites like Aman Essentials and Barneys New York Beauty fragrances. There’s plenty of curated clean beauty finds too, such as products from Lazartigue and Hong Kong hair salon-founded OMG; aesthetician-approved spa names like Borghese and Axxzia; and beauty gadget brands like Ulike to ensure you get pampered from head to toe. Browse the rest of our retail mecca for all your favorite brands under one roof.

And if you need a mid-shop refuel, drop by Elephant Grounds, adjacent to DFS, for a quick cuppa.



To wrap up a spectacular day out, how about a show-stopping fine dining affair? Chef Simon Rogan’s Roganic offers sustainable contemporary British fare, while sister establishment Aulis provides an intimate chef’s table experience. For a no-frills and tasty local experience, Shun Kee Typhoon Shelter Seafood will have you dining on a moored sampan on the peaceful waters of the typhoon shelter. Bookings necessary.

Finally, settle into a relaxing nightcap as you drink in the harborfront view: Causeway Bay is home to stellar rooftop bars like SKYE, Zeng or ALTO – all offering breathtaking city vistas. A day out in Causeway Bay isn’t complete without hopping on the historic trams and experiencing the romance of Hong Kong Island’s unique “ding ding” transportation, taking you wherever you need to go next.
