Urban getaway: Deep Water Bay

Deep Water Bay is not the most beautiful beach in Hong Kong - but it is so easy to reach. It is just on the other side of the Aberdeen tunnel, and takes less than 15 minutes to reach from Causeway Bay. Minibus 40 is a quick and good option, otherwise taxis will take you… Continue reading Urban getaway: Deep Water Bay

Exploring Stanley

We love to go to Stanley on the weekend - we usually go there in the afternoon, take the kids and just stroll down the water promenade. We start by walking through the market, but usually we do not buy anything (except if we are looking for Chinese New Year costumes for the kids) and… Continue reading Exploring Stanley

Signal Hill Signal Tower

Just when I thought I had seen almost everything in Tsim Sha Tsui, I read about the Signal Hill Signal Tower and realised that I have no idea where it is.

There are also plenty of happenings to make the visit even more memorable: (1) Fake snow. Yes it is Hong… Continue reading Hong Kong Disneyland in the run-up to Christmas

Hong Kong Forest Adventures

Two words: Outdoor playground. It should be so easy, but unfortunately it is not that easy here in Hong Kong. There are not many places that you can let your kids explore the surroundings and just play at a playground that is flexible, lets them independently choose what they do and learn to take/manage risks.… Continue reading Hong Kong Forest Adventures

Ark Eden in Mui Wo

We've been to Mui Wo several times in the past, but we've never been to Ark Eden. This is an outdoor camp, in the mountains of Lantau. Actually, not sure if I should call it a camp - it is much more than that. The team running it does much more than taking out city… Continue reading Ark Eden in Mui Wo
