Travelling with kids is not an easy thing. They will trouble you, ask for things and most of all, they will be restless until they get back home. But in Hong Kong this won’t be much of a problem because the city is filled with enjoyable kid-friendly attractions and to make your selections easier, I have made a list of 6 such places in Hong Kong for you to choose from! Let’s fly to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific now!
1. Disneyland Hong Kong
Not only the kids but you too, even though you are grownups will love Disneyland Hong Kong. It is a theme park located inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort in the Penny’s Bay of Lantau Island. Most of the songs on theme park rides are sung in English. The guide maps and the instructions, however, are available in traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese Cantonese, English, and Mandarin. Hong Kong Disneyland has been themed with nine areas- Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Arendelle and Stark Expo. The Main Street, U.S.A. is designed very similar to that of its original street, except everything here is made of wood unlike the other stone made Main Streets in Disneyland all over the world. The Adventureland features the all-time favorite show; “Festival of the Lion King” and the Fantasyland brings life to Sleeping Beauty’s castle, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Winnie the Pooh and so on. The Tomorrowland lets you have the glimpse of the future with the iconic Iron Man Experience. Toy Story Land features shows with the Toy Story characters, the Grizzly Gulch was designed as a mining town and the Mystic Point is home to all this supernatural along with its Mystic Manor. The newest additions- Arendelle: The World of Frozen (to be opened in 2021) and Stark Expo: The World of Marvel Superheroes (to be opened in 2023) are also expected to be super amazing as the rest of the themed areas. And if you are enjoying as much as your kids, go ahead with the fun as no one judges you in this type of theme park.
2. Ocean Park Hong Kong
Ocean Park, Hong Kong is an oceanarium and an animal theme park located on the south side of Hong Kong. Most people prefer to be here rather than Hong Kong Disneyland because of the long queues and crowds but you can visit both of these places with your kids. Ocean Park Hong Kong is separated into two areas by a mountain as the Summit (Headland) and The Waterfront (Lowland). These two areas can be reached by the Ocean Express railway of a cable car system, and if you take this you are sure to be met with the breathtaking views of Hong Kong from above. The Waterfront near the entrance is subdivided into Marine World (with the sea lion habitat), Thrill Mountain (with different kinds of rides), Polar Adventure (with animals like king penguins, gentoo penguins, pacific walruses, …
