Family Fun

A Fun-Filled Day Out at Hong Kong Disneyland

Whether you visit as a family, as a couple, or on your own (!!), you’re never too old for Disney! This was our first-ever trip to a Disneyland theme park, and we (plus our nearly 2-year-old daughter) enjoyed every minute. Although our Minnie Mouse obsessed daughter was frightened of her life-sized idol, we still had tons of fun in Fantasyland, Toy Story Land and Adventureland. Seeing all the Disney characters at the day parade also made us feel incredibly nostalgic and warm inside!

Sampling the World’s Most Instagrammed Dim Sum

If you follow a handful of travel bloggers or influencers on social media, you will most probably have seen these cheeky little dim sum dishes before! Yum Cha does a fantastic job of putting the fun into dim sum. The yellow custard-filled bun tastes sweet and makes the perfect dessert, while the savoury piggy is a tasty steamed pork bun. We need to take a few more trips here to try the entire range!

Enjoying the View From Hong Kong Island’s Highest Mountain

If you think that Hong Kong looks incredible from your harbour-view hotel room, then wait until you see Victoria Harbour and all of those soaring skyscrapers from 428 metres (or 1,400 feet) above ground. After taking the equally-as-scenic peak tram ride up to Victoria Peak, the 360-degree panoramic view from Hong Kong’s highest viewing platform (Sky Terrace 428) is absolutely jaw-dropping!

Sipping on Some of Asia’s Finest Iced Tea

As we live in London, Chinese Iced Tea isn’t something that we come across very easily (or at all). However, in Hong Kong you will literally find an iced tea café on every street, and we definitely make the most of this when we’re out and about in the City as it’s so refreshing to drink whilst outside in the heat! Pictured is our favourite green tea with assorted fruit from HEERETEA in Tsim Sha Tsui. Yum!


Riding the Famous Star Ferry Across Victoria Harbour

For as little as $2.20 (28 US cents or 22 pence), you can enjoy a relaxing boat cruise while taking in the very best view of the City’s skyline. You can take this cruise 65 times and you will still have spent less than 1 single cruise down the River Seine in Paris! Although you can easily hail a (more expensive) taxi, the Star Ferry is definitely our preferred method of transport to reach Hong Kong Island from Kowloon

Relaxation & Outdoor Dining

A Well-Deserved Pool Day with Lunch & Drinks

Grand Hyatt Hong Kong has provided the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. On a hot day in Hong Kong, there’s no better feeling than dipping in and out of a spacious and very-inviting swimming pool at your leisure - only taking breaks to sunbathe and enjoy a tasty lunch with a cocktail. Simply lush!

Eating the Most Colourful Ice Cream We’ve Ever Seen

We’ll be honest with you. We’d seen this "Fruit Loops" ice cream cone all over Instagram and thought "Oh my God, what is THAT?" - we didn’t even know that it came from Hong Kong. However, whilst taking a leisurely stroll down Lee Tung Avenue in Wan Chai, we spotted these Insta-familiar ice cream cones in the shop window of Emack and Bolio’s, so we had to try it out of curiosity! Our verdict: nice flavours, very sweet, but quite big so we couldn’t eat a whole ice cream between us!

Riding the World’s Longest Outdoor Escalator System

Whilst hopping on to an escalator or moving walkway doesn’t immediately strike you as a fun activity, the concept of being transported from neighbourhood-to-neighbourhood on foot is pretty impressive. At 800 metres (2,600 feet) in length, the Central-Mid-Levels escalator is the longest outdoor escalator system on Earth and it’s free to use! We love the fact that one minute we can be in Central’s stone-slabbed Pottinger Street Market, and 5 minutes later we’re in the trendy SoHo district
