With Hong Kong’s extended ban on dinner dine-in service and continued social distancing measures in place, some of us may be stuck in a rut especially after experiencing the same during Chinese New Year.
But just because restaurants can’t welcome you for dinner, doesn’t mean it's time to skip out on a romantic date night during the month of love when there are so many things that we can (safely!) do at home instead.
To help you get creative, we’ve listed some date night ideas you can do with your significant other right in the comfort of your home.
Editor’s Note: Social distancing restrictions are in place in Hong Kong. Please note that there’s a limit of no more than two families gathered in private properties. For more details about the restrictions, please see our guide.
1. Enjoy virtual art tours
With international travel still restricted and museums and galleries closed, exhibitions and tours have moved online––which is great news for those looking to get a culture fix at home. Ditch the long lines and spend the night “touring” around different museums, from New York, Paris to Hong Kong. You and your partner can discover and admire numerous art pieces from different eras and artists.
While a number of museums are now offering virtual tours, some are trying to be a little bit more innovative. The Met Unframed uses 5G and augmented reality technology to fully immerse viewers and also has interactive games on the table. Even fashion brands such as Gucci has launched a virtual tour of their garden in Florence.
