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. The Signal Tower sits in a small park and its entrance is at Minden Row. It is very close to the Middle Road Children's… Continue reading Signal Hill Signal Tower

Hong Kong Disneyland in the run-up to Christmas

Christmas is magical, and so is Hong Kong Disneyland at Christmas time. We went a couple of days ago, and the kids loved it. In fact, we all enjoyed the decorations, which are just marvellous.

Star Ferry Harbour Tour

This is quite fun for kids - you get to ride on a special Star Ferry (the 'Shining Star') across the Harbour for about an hour. You can side inside in the cool a/c room or outside at the front or back, and watch Hong Kong Island and Kowloon go past you. We're great fans… Continue reading Star Ferry Harbour Tour

Secret Rooftop Garden at the Wan Chai Ferry Pier

Technically this is not a secret, but practically it does not seem to be known much. The Wan Chai Ferry Pier has three levels – the first floor is the entry point to the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui and the Star Ferry Harbour Tour. On the second floor is a Japanese Sushi restaurant… Continue reading Secret Rooftop Garden at the Wan Chai Ferry Pier
