Hong Kong is surrounded by water, but get away from the murky harbour and crowded beaches and take to the high seas. From intimate sailing boats to more extravagant motor yachts, commandeer a ship to sail you into the sunset, or sunrise if you fancy a bit of midnight stargazing. Spend a day swimming, sunbathing and enjoying some of Hong Kong's less-accessible coastline, and enjoy a romantic champagne dinner in romantic isolation.
