Social Networking: Sports, Family, Expat Groups

Although it is not possible to practice every hobby in Hong Kong (no we don’t have snow topped mountains), there is a wide variety of groups that meet up to practice a specific hobby or explore a particular interest.

Whether you are looking for gamers, readers, scrabble layers, orienteering groups, runners, paddlers or hashers, you will find them.

One of the best places to find these groups is on the international website for like-minded people called Meetup. For those who do not know Meetup, the site offers a platform for individuals to set up their own  groups. As the company describes themselves,  Meetup is the world’s largest network of local groups. If you cannot find a group of people practicing your favourite sport or hobby, why not add to Hong Kong’s eclectic mix and set up your own group?

Meetup’s main site is while the Hong Kong meetup pages can be found at

For those who are athletically inclined, or have always wanted to be, living in Hong Kong offer some interesting group sport opportunities, which are a great way of meeting people.

Hiking & water sports in particular are a good outlet for meeting people, staying healthy and seeing some lovely scenery.
