Holiday Gifts for the Sporty Guy

If your guy is all about competition and staying fit then these gifts will be sure to get his heart pumping.

Polar Watch

If he strives for only the best then get him a Polar Sports Watch this holiday so he can be sure to maximize his training to the fullest. The watch will give him the inside scoop on his fitness level by measuring heart rate, combined speed, distance and calories burned. With a gift like this he will be ready to test his endurance in the Standard Charter Marathon come February!

Price: Ranges from $700 - $4,000 HKD

Where to Buy: Visit the Polar Website for store locations in HK

Go Karting at the International Kart Circuit in Diamond Coast

If your man feels the need for speed then take him to the International Kart Circuit, which is Hong Kong’s only Go Kart racing track. A few laps around the circuit will be sure to get his adrenaline pumping. We suggest taking him and a couple of friends so they can race against each other while you take photos of the racers in action. Or if you are sporty girl – you should join in!


$260/person for the Normal Package (includes safety video, written test, 3 laps road test and a 10 minute session)

$600/person for the Special Package, which can be used for 2 months (includes safety video, written test, 3 laps road test and four 10 minute sessions)

Take him to the Sky with a Paragliding Course

If he has done every sport imaginable on the ground then he should now move on to the sky! By giving him Paragliding lessons this holiday he will see Hong Kong from a whole new perspective. Sky Adventure is specialized in paragliding instruction and The Student Pilot Course is the first step towards obtaining your own license. He will learn how to launch, basic flying techniques and spot landing. The course is conducted in Ma On Shan and Sai Kung Country Park over 4 flying days and 12 flights.
