Best for Romance - Expert review of Lovers' Rock

Love is a many splendoured thing - and how!

This is a two-parter: first is Lovers' Rock itself. Second is Bowen Road, largely traffic free, which winds perfectly flat from Magazine Gap Road to Wong Nai Chung Gap Road, a pleasant 45-minute walk with splendid views down over the city and into some of the megabucks mansions to either side. Thumbing through a pre-war guide book, I was mildly surprised to see the Bowen Road promenade recommended even then!

Lovers' Rock provides an amazing contrast to hi-tech, high-rolling Hong Kong. Offerings here deal with all sides of romantic life, from finding a spouse to keeping a spouse to getting pregnant with or without a spouse. Newlyweds come here to bless their marriage, and other couples drop by to reinforce their vows. 

Expert tips: 
Sleep here overnight to get pregnant, or so they say.
