Although weird and wacky news is our staple diet here at Coconuts Hong Kong, our Features section gives us an outlet to rant, rave, and really get stuck into a variety of subjects, ranging from current affairs to local quirks and customs, and a thoughtful examination of living in this city with a physical disability.
To really get to know Hong Kong beneath its glittering surface, come to the Long Reads tag, where we bring our readers original and in-depth work like a comprehensive series on the city’s craft gin movement or carefully curated catalogue of the best English-language books about Hong Kong. Next time you’re in a traffic jam, or taking a long ferry ride, sit back, whip out our latest Long Read, and prepare to be schooled in something you never knew (at least so extensively) about Hong Kong.
We’ve got insightful Interviews with everyone from local artists to daring adrenaline junkies, up-and-coming musicians, old-school (or should we say, pre-Tinder) matchmakers, and the elusive Lan Kwai Fong regular known as Gollum.
For those who want to explore more aesthetically pleasing features, check out our picture-perfect Photo Essays tag for images of Hong Kong’s all-important protests, gorgeous local shop cats, tweezer-happy “face readers”, disappearing neon signs, and the odd larger-than-life supermoon.
Coconuts Hong Kong contributors air their fierce and feisty views on everything from living with the Filipina stereotype to their personal rebellion against the “clean-living” movement in the Opinions tag, whilst regular writers dole out their observations in the Columns.
