Exciting City Trip to Hong Kong: A Family Adventure

Just one week to go before we embark on our city trip to Hong Kong, and the anticipation is palpable! I had the pleasure of visiting Hong Kong 8 years ago while en route to Australia, and was captivated by its unique “east meets west” atmosphere. The city offers a fascinating blend of towering skyscrapers, sprawling shopping malls, and traditional Chinese culture, making it a truly enchanting destination.

Our Journey Begins

On Friday, the 23rd of February, we will be flying directly from Amsterdam Schiphol to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific. The 12-hour flight is reputed to have excellent inflight service for kids, so we’re eager to experience it firsthand. We’ve been preparing our children, Flo and Lotte, for the long journey, and they’re surprisingly excited about the flight. Perhaps the small presents and snacks we’ve packed for the journey have something to do with their enthusiasm.

Exploring Hong Kong: What’s on the Agenda?

Hong Kong is brimming with exciting activities and attractions. This Hong Kong travel guide has been a great help in planning our itinerary. Hong Kong is often a stopover destination, as it was for me 8 years ago. However, this time, we’re spending 9 days in the city, taking full advantage of the perfect climate, which hovers around 20 degrees.

Our to-do list includes:

– Visiting Disneyland
– Seeing the Tian Tan Buddha
– Taking the famous Peak tram to the Peak
– Spotting rare pink dolphins
– Viewing Hong Kong from the star ferry
– Taking the Ngong Ping 360 cable car
– Relaxing by the pool, exploring the city, and shopping

Our Accommodations in Hong Kong

For our 9-day stay in Hong Kong, we’ve booked three different hotels: Dorsett Wanchai, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Sha Tin, and the Disney Explorers Lodge. Each hotel offers unique amenities and experiences, ensuring our stay in Hong Kong will be comfortable and memorable.

Preparation for the Trip

Before we can embark on our city trip to Hong Kong, we need to pack. This time, I’m determined to start packing well in advance, rather than leaving it to the last minute. If you have any tips for our city trip to Hong Kong, I’d love to hear them!
