Never mind that old cliche about "The City that Never Sleeps." There's no need to party all night in Hong Kong if you simply want to head for bed not too long after dinner. And there are plenty of options to keep visitors entertained early in the evening.
Quite the best – simply because it doesn't cost a cent – is the Symphony of Lights, a spectacular sound and light show that flashes and reverberates around the skyscrapers on both sides of Victoria Harbour every evening at 8pm. Grab a good viewing spot, upload some shots to social media, and then you can make a beeline for your pajamas. Just as thrilling, an evening at Happy Valley Racecourse provides dual entertainment – horses galloping around the track, and thousands of spectators frantic with excitement. Again, things have pretty much wrapped up by 10pm.
There are lots of other options to while away an evening. Heading to one of Hong Kong's parks – or theme parks – is a local favorite. The grand parade and firework display at Disneyland caps the day perfectly.
And as Hong Kong is pretty compact, it only takes a train, taxi or bus ride to get back to wherever you're staying in time for bed.
