Coconuts Hong Kong Lifestyle

Hongkongers may work hard, but we play pretty damn hard too so it’s a no-brainer that we take our Lifestyle section seriously and cover a lot of bases. Here, you can check out concert announcements under our Music tag, learn about upcoming exhibitions in the Arts section, surreptitiously scan the Showbiz tag for celebrity news during your lunch break, get the lowdown on the hottest new store or best cheongsam tailor in Fashion & Shopping, and swipe left (or right) in Sexuality & Dating. We’ve got guides on making the most of the annual Rugby Sevens, a post-event roundup of the best fancy dress costumes, tips on festival lineups, articles on where to take the best Instagram photos, listicles of the best things to do in rain or shine, and so much more. As staunch supporters of equal rights, we have a dedicated LGBT+ section that covers everything from the landmark court case that won a gay government employee spousal benefits, to the city’s first walking tour for queer culture and history. In our City Guides tag, we spill about all the best things in Hong Kong from an insider’s perspective, whether it be a guide on the best rooftop bars where a Negroni comes with a killer view, a local’s guide to overlooked districts, or a handy index of all the races during the Dragon Boat Festival. Feeling a bit strapped for cash, but still dedicated to that #gymlife? We’ve got a feature explaining where you can work up a sweat for free. More interested in the #carblife? We’ve got the 411 on a couple places that’ll hit the spot.
