Hello, Hong Kong

To start off this travel series, we’ll take a step back to when my family and I went to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, one of the must-see places in Asia, stole my heart immediately because of the overall atmosphere, the food and the convenience.

Throughout our 4-day trip, we were able to: enjoy the famous theme parks, explore the city and visit the infamous Victoria Peak.

Theme Parks

Once we landed to HK, we checked in to our hotel and went straight to our first destination, Ocean Park.

I’d say that if you enjoy theme and amusement parks, you should definitely check out the Ocean Park as it features rides that are perfect for the kids and adults. On top of that, you’ll have the chance to ride a cable car from the Waterfront to the Summit and see the wonderful views of the sea, sky and surrounding hills.

Because we enjoy fulfilling the inner kid in us, we decided to go to Disneyland on our third day in HK and as expected, everything was magical.

We took the MTR throughout the whole trip and I must say, it was the best part of this HK journey. Their MTR system was incredible considering the amount of places it can take you, including Disneyland.

Going back to the park, it was less crowded than the one in California and that allowed me to truly enjoy most of the rides and performances provided. The only downside was there were obviously lesser rides and themes available since it wasn’t the original branch. Nonetheless, I still had a wonderful time with my family.

City Tour

The city tour took place on our 2nd day in Hong Kong. Luckily, we had the chance to see the city at its peaceful state; during working hours and when everyone’s asleep.

I’d say that it was exactly how it was in the movies and photographs. We went to the Avenue of Stars and kinda wished I knew more than Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, took a boat ride at the Floating Fishing Village to see more of the buildings and the famous JUMBO Floating Restaurant.

The city looks more picturesque at night with all the LED lights and signs scattered throughout the place. It feels more lively and the breeze totally makes up for it. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture the wonderful city nightlife as I want to take the time and enjoy the moment with my family.

 

Victoria Peak

What’s an HK tour without Victoria Peak? On our last day in HK, my family and I decided to use our remaining time exploring the Peak Tower and taking the tram to have a better view of the region.

Below the amazing view are museums that you can enjoy with your family as well: Madame Tussauds, where all the famous celebrities and influencers’ wax figures are displayed and the Trick Eye Museum for some tricky and fun shots.

Now, it’s time to appreciate the view of Hong Kong at the Victoria Peak.

Visiting Hong Kong was incredible as there were a variety of options for people of all ages. It definitely sums up the urban lifestyle without the super crowded feel, which was perfect for me.

So, if you want to experience the city life with your family or friends, I would highly recommend you to check out Hong Kong.
