Hong Kong: Family Holiday
The Pearl of the Orient
Hong Kong is a fun loving destination to enjoy a family holiday. It is a bustling territory with many of the top attractions catering to young people. In summer children can enjoy any number of water sports and activities along Hong Kong's beaches. In the city children can enjoy a ferry ride across the stunning Victoria harbour complete with amazing views of the skyscrapers and the peak looming in the backdrop. At night the skyscrapers put on a light show. For a true adventure take the tram up the steep climb to Victoria Peak for a bird's eye view of the city. On a hot day or early morning the Zoological and Botanical Gardens on Hong Kong Island are a nice family escape from the streets and a chance to take part or simply watch t'ai chi performed. Children will also love wandering Hong Kong's exotic food markets and traditional shops. For a family day in Hong Kong head to Ocean Park or visit one of the rural villages or visit Lantau island and ride the cable car, the Ngong Ping 360 to see the world's largest outdoor Buddha. Hong Kong Disneyland is also found on Lantau island. Even with younger children you can do most of Hong Kong’s sightseeing on foot and the efficient public transport. There is also a wide range of family friendly accommodation options available for reasonable prices. Hong Kong is definitely a good option for a family holiday.
