For some people, getting that winning photo for the gram is the greatest feeling in the world. We completely agree, and we often bless our lucky stars for living in Hong Kong: the world’s most Instagram-friendly city. Next photo adventure you find yourself on, make sure to make it a photo/pampering session combination and get that photo along with a good spa visit.
The most iconic backdrop for any good Instagram star travelling through Hong Kong is the colourful buildings of Choi Hung Estate. With a name that translates to “Rainbow Estate”, this estate is just screaming out to be snapped in your next photo. Just look at those colours!
Here’s an idea, before you go to get that winning photo why not make a pit stop at PNC Beauty & Nail Salon and get some rainbow nails to match? This colourful spa has such a large array of gel and regular polishes, did you know you can get a Japanese Style Soak Off Gel Manicure for only $350HKD (price before the BloomMe discount)? What’s a Japanese Style manicure, you ask? Well, it is a manicure, hand massage, and a whole lot of bling and crystal stones attached to your nails. Needless to say, this pit stop is a must.

Lok Wah Estate South
Geometric backdrops your thang? This beloved backdrop is a favourite for super flexible Instagrammers and creatives a like. These amazing blue structures form the perfect photo op, and when the sun is at just the right angle there is a super cool set of shadows cast across the circles which creates another level of awesome. All we can say is, you need to check this place out for yourself.
All that stretching and posing got your back muscles kinda aching? CM Beauty Kowloon Bay has your back (get it?). After a successful day of taking photos, you deserve a good massage from a brilliant spa. Opt for the Relaxing Body Massage (60 minutes @ $280HKD priced before the BloomMe discount) for some really good me-time. Or if you have a little more time, try the Relaxing Trip which involves a spa, body peel, and a body massage (90 minutes @ $480 HKD). Or if you have even more time (or just deserve a good pampering session), then you need the Deluxe Relaxing Trip which involves the spa, massage, and peel, but instead lasts for 120 minutes of pure bliss.

Love them or hate them, the hoards of tourists surrounding the iconic graffiti along Graham Street are there for a reason: that backdrop is the best place in Hong Kong to snap your next photo. The colours of this mural and the instantly recognisable Hong Kong style buildings depicted there have made this spot the place to visit. Just be prepared to fight for a spot, it tends to get super busy!
Sustained a nasty black eye from fighting for your photo-op spot? Soothe that battle wound the French way: with grapes and luxury. Le Spa Caudalie is not only our favourite place to stock up on their world famous skincare range, but also to indulge in their glorious facials and massages. Try the Vinoperfect Radiance Facial (50 minutes @ $860HKD) and indulge in their herbal tea, fluffy towels, and cosy interior.

Got a taste for exploration? Bet you haven’t explored Tai Kwun yet.
Or if the stereotypical Instagram spots are too cliche for you, it’s time to make a trip to Hong Kong’s least visited islands.
