Coconuts Hong Kong

Hong Kong. Vibrant, exciting, and the originator of East-meets-West culture, this city is like no other, and Coconuts Hong Kong is here to bring you all the information you need on our bustling metropolis. Whether we’re reporting on hard news, happy hour deals that sound too good to be true, or an oft-overlooked aspect of local culture, we’ve got you covered on everything fresh and juicy that’s happening on our 200-odd islands. Having cut our teeth on the mass Occupy protests of 2014, we’ve got a passion for covering Hong Kong’s political highs and lows, from serious features on council elections to looking at lighthearted memes about well-known politicians, which showcase our trademark humour and eye for virality. While we pride ourselves on our tongue-in-cheek and often irreverent voice, there’s also room for gravity over here in the Fragrant Harbour, which is best demonstrated by our in-depth multimedia features on any and all Hong Kong-relevant topics which catch our eye, be they intangible local traditions, the stories of outstanding individuals making their mark on society, or even a detailed breakdown of how Hong Kong’s portrayed in video games. But we wouldn’t be where we are today without our soft spot for animal stories, hunger for the hottest eats in town, and eagerness to share our tried-and-tested travel tips with all you lovely readers (a.k.a. Coconauts). Think of us as your knowledgeable best friend who’s quick with a snarky quip (when appropriate, of course), handy with an internet connection, and always there for you.
