Hong Kong for Families

Trip code
HKF001

Hong Kong is small, easy to navigate, and full to bursting with fascinating culture and history. Just add Disneyland and it’s a paradise for families.

Markets overflow with bizarre snacks and trinkets. Trams rattle between cars and skyscrapers, while cable cars sweep across the sea to nearby islands. At night, the city lights up in an extravaganza of lights and music. Worried your kids will get bored on holiday? Just take them to Hong Kong.

The experience

Every family is different, so if this itinerary doesn’t look like your cup of tea — just tell us what you have in mind and we’ll design something to suit you.

Day 1-2

Disneyland/Hong Kong Island

Welcome to Disneyland — but not as you know it. Opened in 2005, HK’s very own “happiest place on Earth” was built according to principles of feng shui. Old favourites Adventureland, Tomorrowland and Fantasyland have now been joined by newer Marvel and Frozen themed attractions, and there are enough rides, games and stalls to keep your family entertained all day (and probably longer). If you do want to mix it up, however, we suggest an afternoon spent exploring Hong Kong Island. Getting around by tram and outdoor escalator is a novelty in itself, and you may be able to tempt your children with promise of a visit to Toy Street, where stalls are festooned with classic toys and new gizmos.

Highlights

Make some time to ride the “ding-dings” (trams), go shopping on Toy Street, and try out the extra-long outdoor escalators on Hong Kong Island

Day 3-4

Lantau/Kowloon

Get to grips with a totally different side of Hong Kong as you join a private guide for a morning exploring laid-back Lantau Island. Wander incense-wreathed Po Lin Monastry, where monks pray and chant while they perform their Buddhist rituals, then climb the steps to the Big Buddha on Tian Tan Hill. It’s a spectacular cablecar ride back to the mainland, where you’ll dive into the hectic heart of Temple Street Night Market, then head out on a dinner cruise on Victoria Harbour — complete with buffet dinner and live band. At eight o’clock on the dot, watch as the city’s iconic skyline is set alight for the 15-minutes Symphony of Light as you toast the end of an action-packed family break.
