Lovers' Rock

Address: Bowen Road, Mid Levels, Hong Kong, China

- Free


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. 

Value for money

Expert tips

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