Visit to the Big Buddha

The kids have never been to the Tian Tan Buddha in Lantau Island, and we figured it might be a nice day out for the whole family - so off we went! I had been a few times, but the last times must have been in 2011/2012, and I wasn't sure how much the surroundings… Continue reading Visit to the Big Buddha

Hong Kong Science Museum

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

City Gallery Museum

City Gallery is an exhibition centre about the planning and development of Hong Kong. It is located at Edinburgh Place in Central - and I only stumbled upon it by sheer luck. We went to see a photography exhibition at the City Hall and that's when we noticed the City Gallery next door. It is… Continue reading City Gallery Museum
