When the rainy season hits Hong Kong (or anywhere for that matter), it’s easy to succumb to the idea that you’re stuck indoors with nothing to do.
However, that’s not true at all! There are plenty of fun activities to try while staying dry.
Don’t believe us? From art workshops to star gazing, check out the coolest indoor activities we recommend to do during the rainy season in Hong Kong.
1. Take ceramic workshops at the CC Art Studio
Address: Hong Kong, Mong Kok, Prince Edward Rd W, 141號, Edward Mansion, 6樓E室
Contact details: +852 9546 6825
- Monday to Sunday – 10 AM to 10 PM
They say it’s never too late to learn something new – and we agree! That’s why we recommend doing something with your hands by taking up ceramic workshops at the CC Art Studio. We find this especially relaxing during the rainy season.
Not only will you get to learn something new, you’ll also have the chance to meet new people with the same interests! They also have other workshops worth checking out like art workshops, modeling clay workshops, couples clay workshops, and the like.
The CC Art Studio is in an accessible spot – you don’t even need to take your car. Once you alight from the Prince Edward MTR station, you just need to walk for a minute before you find yourself inside the studio.
2. Relax at The Mandarin Spa
Address: 5 Connaught Rd Central, Central, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 2825 4888
- Monday to Friday – 10 AM to 11 PM
- Saturday & Sunday – 9 AM to 11 PM
We don’t know about you, but the rainy season for us calls for a relaxing activity… and one of the best ways to deal with last week’s stress is by getting a massage.
We find that one of the best massage places in Hong Kong is The Mandarin Spa. It’s of world-class quality and you’re sure to get your money’s worth.
A fair number of us are actually already regulars. Anyway, there are numerous massages you can get from The Mandarin Spa. However, if you were to ask which the best one is, it would be hard to answer.
It’s because each one has different techniques, so at the end of the day, the best one might be entirely up to what you’re looking for.
They also have other facilities you can enjoy like the swimming pool, barber and salon, and fitness center.
3. Have a traditional tea drinking experience at LokCha
Address: Shop 01-G07, Block 1, Taikwun, 10, Hollywood Rd, Central, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 2276 5777
- Monday to Sunday – 11 AM to 11 PM
Whether you’re a visitor or a local, treating yourself to a traditional tea drinking experience is a must while you’re in Hong Kong. For that, we’d say to go to LokCha!
LokCha has numerous tea options available, so you’re bound to find something that best suits your taste buds.
Aside from drinks, you can also order food here like crunchy dim sum plates, desserts, and such. We recommend the dim sum!
Feeling overwhelmed by all the tea options? Try these: nanyan spring tieguanyin, wuzi yanzhonglan, and organic old tree suixian. All of them are part of their list of best sellers!
4. Find your way out of LOST’s escape rooms
Address: 3/F, 67 Argyle St, Mong Kok, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 2390 0093
- Monday to Friday – 12 PM to 10 PM
- Saturday & Sunday – 11 AM to 10 PM
Here’s a fun activity to do with all your buds – escape rooms! This is especially recommended if you’re a thrill-seeker with a love for puzzles.
Some rooms are best for 2 to 6 people, while others can fit up to 8 people. Do note that Lost at Causeway Bay, Mong Kok, The Pulse, D2 Place Two, and DB Plaza all offer different rooms.
Make sure to check out each one their website to find which is the most exciting for you.
Anyway, if you find it hard to gather the gang during the rainy season, you can still enjoy the excitement of escape rooms right at home. Lost has several virtual escape games on their website that are also quite fun!
Our favorite room as of the moment is the Qin Immortal Life. The room can accommodate from 2 to 6 people and can be finished in 45 minutes. In this room, you get to experience being on an expedition to get inside the Qin Ling tomb. Navigate your way out or be stuck there forever (not really, of course).
5. Grab vegetarian Indian brunch at Veda
Address: 2 Arbuthnot Rd, Central, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 3755 3067
- Monday to Sunday – 8 AM to 10:30 PM
Price: HK $398
During the rainy season, keep your belly warm with delicious Indian cuisine. We find that there’s no better way to do this than grabbing a free-flowing brunch at Veda.
They offer a lot of classic Indian street food like samosa chaat and pani puri. And yes, everything’s vegetarian friendly! Some of their food options are even gluten-free.
If you also want free-flowing champagne, you just have to add HK $368 (per person).
6. Go stargazing at the Hong Kong Space Museum
Address: Hong Kong Space Museum, 10 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 2721 0226

Who says you can’t enjoy looking at the stars while staying indoors? Well, thanks to the Hong Kong Science Museum, you can experience the wonders of space from a comfortable chair.
Their Space Theatre is where the real magic is. It’s equipped with a 23-meter-hemispherical screen so you will really feel like you’re traveling to the milky way.
By the way, every year, they change the shows that they screen at the theater. As of writing, they have Mars 1001, Voyager (a space mission show), and Nature’s Hidden Kingdom (shows the world of fungi).
Other than the Space Theatre, there are a lot of fun activities to experience at the Hong Kong Science Museum. They also offer astronomy courses, workshops, young astronaut training camps, and many more.
7. Bring out your inner child at Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park
Address: 3/F, Kodak House 1, 321 Java Rd, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong

For those who feel called doing activities that require a lot of movement during the rainy season, there’s the Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park.
There are a lot of activities to do here like extreme air sports (7,000 square feet of trampoline field), ninja obstacle course, trapeze, and more. And it’s covered, so the rain won’t be a problem!
Quite a few people even celebrate their birthday parties. We can say that we’re already looking at this venue for our next office party!
For groups up to 10 people, you can book for around HK $2,700 to HK $3,400. The price depends on whether you’re booking for the weekday or weekend.
If you want to avoid crowds, we recommend going here around Monday to Wednesday.
8. Watch gigs at The Wanch
Address: 1/F, Henan Building, 90 Jaffe Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 3692 5933
- Monday to Friday – 11:30 AM to 2 AM
- Saturday & Sunday – 2 PM to 2 AM
During the rainy season, you can also stay dry and experience live music at The Wanch. Different types of bands play here like rock, acoustic, RnB, pop, and more – so be ready for anything!
Aside from watching musicians do their magic, you can also enjoy numerous food items off The Wanch’s menu.
They have snacks like fries, zinger chicken wings, and quesadillas. They also have more filling dishes such as garlic chili prawn pasta, stonebaked gourmet pizza, cumberland sausage & mash, and a lot more!
Of course they also serve alcoholic drinks so sit back, relax, and lose yourself in the music.
We find it best to avoid going here on Fridays to Sundays if we want a more peaceful atmosphere. It’s usually when The Wanch attracts a lot of their patrons!
9. Grab a cup of coffee at Fineprint
Address: Fineprint, 38 Peel St, Central, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 5503 6880
- Monday to Sunday – 6 AM to 6 PM
The rainy season calls for a steaming cup of coffee. That’s why this list wouldn’t be complete without us including one of the best cafes in Hong Kong – Fineprint.
The baristas here really know what they’re doing and they’re knowledgeable on all things coffee-related.
Not only is their coffee good, but their interior is also quite aesthetically pleasing. We say this because we find that coffee drinkers usually appreciate good ambiance together with their coffee.
Unlike other cafes, Fineprint also offers other drinks like wine and cocktails. They’re pretty good!
10. Play board games at Gala
Address: 3A, Kafat Building, 24 Carnarvon Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Contact details: +852 5534 1996
- Monday – closed
- Tuesday to Thursday – 2 PM to 10 PM
- Friday to Sunday – 12 PM to 11 PM
If you’re looking for a cozy activity you can enjoy indoors, head over to Gala – a board game cafe that has over 1,000 board games! Whatever type of game you’re looking for, they probably have it.
As if that’s not enough, they also offer unlimited WiFi and drinks. Be ready to spend hours at Gala… or however long it takes to stop raining.
If you’re a board game fan and also want to take one home with you, you can also check out what they have available in-store or at their website.
