Mother’s Day is approaching on May 9, 2021, calling us to celebrate and honor the most important women in our lives! After being isolated and surrounded with uncertainty, customs like this celebratory day are losing some of their routineness and we are once again opening our eyes to why they became traditions in the first place. For the occasion, we’ve shortlisted 10 Mother’s Day dining offers in Hong Kong that are peppered with surprises and sweetened with special attention.
Even though wining and dining in the loving company is a delightful way to show gratitude, don’t forget that quality time and authentic attention are the most precious gifts you can give to the person who nurtured you into the person you are today (unless that is, you know for certain that your mom’s love language is precisely Lobster au Naturel). Or perhaps a staycation for your mother? We have a Staycation guide just for you!
