Hong Kong is one of the best places for a family vacation.
Besides having tons of free things to do, it is also the perfect place to find high quality tailoring for your clothes. The country also has plenty of kid-friendly activities that will keep your children entertained everyday they’re there. Scroll through the gallery below for our top recommended things to do with your child in Hong Kong!
Once you’re done exploring Hong Kong, how about heading right next door to Macau for more holiday family fun?
Every evening, a stunning light display illuminates the skies around Victoria Harbour. The 13-minute Symphony of Lights is free of charge and guaranteed to entertain everyone from tots to teens. To listen to live narration alongside the spectacle, head to the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront by the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
A family vacation to Hong Kong wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Disneyland to meet Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and the gang. It may not quite match its Floridian counterpart in terms of size, but kids can still ride Space Mountain while parents indulge in a bit of nostalgia. Both young and old will also enjoy the spectacular daily and nightly shows.
The Children’s Gallery at the Hong Kong Science Museum features a number of interactive exhibits, including the Big Kids’ Work Site. Here, Junior can pretend to be a construction worker and build a small house, using bricks and equipment such as a crane, a wheelbarrow and a conveyor belt.
The role-playing work site accommodates up to 25 children, so your little one will also get to “work” with other kids. This exhibit is only open to children who are 80cm to 120cm tall.
Tickets are HK$20 (S$3.35). Admission is free for kids under four years old.
Superpark in Kowloon is every child’s dream come true. Designed by a Finnish dad, and with locations all over the world, this indoor activity park has three zones, each built for a specific purpose.
The Adventure Area features obstacle walls, trampolines, zip wires, slides, play towers, and a pedal car racing track. Over at the Game Arena, kids play sports like baseball, basketball and golf.
In the Freestyle Hall, kids can skate and scoot, play in a foam pit, climb a wall, and do gymnastics on the special floor. The best part is, you’re welcome to join your little ones. There is no minimum age to enter the venue.
A one-day ticket costs HK$180 (S$30) per person on weekdays, and HK$250 per person on holidays. Cheaper tickets are available if you only plan to stay in the venue for a few hours.
If your kids are artistically inclined, they will enjoy the workshop at Loveramics at The Pulse in Repulse Bay. First, they get to pick one item from a range of unglazed ceramic mugs, bowls and owls.
Then, they can decorate their item any way they want, using the paints, stamps and stencils provided. The decorated item is left with the store to be glazed, polished and fired. No experience is necessary.
The workshop is open to all ages, but kids under three years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Each session lasts about two hours and costs HK$400 (S$67), including one ceramic item and all tools and brushes.
With an area of 1,482 square metres, Mega Ice in Kowloon Bay is said to be the largest ice rink in Hong Kong. If your kids already know how to ice skate, they can rent a pair of skates and have a go by themselves on the ice.
But if they want to learn how to glide like a professional figure skater then Mega Ice also offers lessons. Choose from three types of skating coaches – a regular, a senior or a star coach. A private, 30-minute lesson starts from HK$280 (S$46.90).
