We know planning family-friendly activities in Hong Kong is hard. So we’ve compiled our top things to do with kids or teens in the city!
The Science Museum is like an indoor amusement park. Fun, educational, and occasionally makes you feel nerdy. Have fun in the funky world of mirrors or build your own house or roller coaster in the Children’s Gallery while learning the science behind.
Enjoy a relaxing family walk at one of Hong Kong’s most expensive living areas for the panoramic view of Victoria Harbour. Feel free to kick your day off by catching the sunrise at the Lugard Road lookout too!
- Ocean Park
Visit the one and only ocean-themed amusement park in the world for exciting rides and lovely wild animals. It is a park for families so don’t worry if you have young kids because they will still be able to go on rides in the Whiskers Harbour.
The Zoological and Botanical Garden is the city’s back garden. With a panoply of flora and fauna, you will meet some endangered animals originated in tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia, especially primates — our closest friends.
ICC situated by the seafront of Victoria Harbour is the tallest building of Hong Kong. Wow yourselves by going up to the Sky 100 observation deck to be on top of the city and relish a panorama of the world-famous Hong Kong harbour view.
Who said going to animal sanctuaries is the only option to meet wild animals? “Read” Hong Kong’s living bird book to see the feathery buddies and their owners. Or have a chat with the bird shop owners to learn more about them!
Yum cha as a Hong Kong tourist must-do is seemingly cliche, but have you ever thought of going to restaurants with funky dim sum? Visit Yum Cha for their cute BBQ Piggy Bun (Char Siu Bao) and the Hot Custard Molten Bun with piping hot salty duck egg filling that oozes out the bun. The cuteness and tastiness of Yum Cha’s dim sum will certainly bring you a new perspective to this Chinese tradition.
If you had seen the bird-eye view of Victoria Harbour, why not the peaceful view of the suburbs too! Take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car (crystal cabin recommended) to see the airport and the newly built Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge from far and visit Ngong Ping village for souvenirs and hike up to the Big Buddha.
Located by the seafront of north Hong Kong Island, the ferris wheel also offers an aerial view of the Victoria Harbour, but the Kowloon seafront instead. It serves as a budget alternative to going onto the Sky 100 observation deck. Check out the AIA Vitality Park as well for the rides and food kiosk for a fun day by the seafront.
- VR game
Strap on some VR goggles to escape the hectic world. Hong Konger’s favourite party rooms offer a range of exciting VR gaming experiences where you can become a Fruit Ninja or a grand tourer, or just a painter if you need something less intense and therapeutic.
