What makes up a fabulous weekend getaway? Going to a movie? A waterfront promenade stroll? Playing with your adorable pet? If these lovely options are what you are looking for, look no further than Cyberport.
Originally positioned as a creative digital community, Cyberport is now home to a host of lifestyle retailers and facilities. With the new Kennedy Town MTR station opening in early 2015, getting there is a breeze. Take minibus No. 58 at Kennedy Town MTR Exit A. It takes about 15 minutes.
Food & Beverage: Scanty as dining options may seem, many of the ones that are here have a cosy and laid-back atmosphere. What better way to kick off your day than by enjoying a sumptuous weekend brunch? Head to Treat at Le Meridien Hotel ($588 per adult). Pamper yourself a little more with unlimited drinks of Moët & Chandon for an extra $180. A spectacular view from a window table will certainly add to your appetite.
A sushi bar is nothing new in Hong Kong, but Umami has one unique difference: It allows you to taste temaki and sushi while getting in touch with nature in a terraced garden. It’s a great place to chat with friends over Japanese beer or sake martinis.
Bored of the regular Chinese cuisine? Get an exotic Mexican taste at El Charro Mexican Cantina. Lunch sets at this restaurant are priced between $100 and $200 — a good pick for those who prefer a meal that’s both delicious and budget-friendly.
Cyberport is well known for its spacious lawn and sea views. If you fancy yourself casual enough for the grass, grab a burger or a cup of coffee at Delaney’s Irish bar in The Arcade and bring them outside for an al fresco dining experience. Dig in, relax, enjoy.
Cyberport Waterfront Park: Going for a picnic doesn’t have to mean tromping all the way out to the suburbs of the New Territories. The pet-friendly Cyberport Waterfront Park is a much easier choice if you just want to stretch your legs. Keep in peace with the environment and immerse yourself in cheerful kids, adorable pets, idyllic villas, blue sky and green sea, together making up a beautiful picture that reminds you to live in the moment.
The Arcade: You may not be able to afford a luxury house, but at least you can liven up your home with the wide range of home products offered by big brand names like Ulferts, Indigo and G.O.D. The mall also has a fitness club (Strive Fitness) for health conscious customers and a Broadway Circuit theatre for entertainment. A tip for you: movie ticket prices are $20 cheaper than average.
