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

Children’s Discovery Museum

While visiting Fun Zone in North Point, we noticed the signage for the Children's Discovery Museum.

The tickets are 90HKD (weekdays) / 110HKD (weekends/public holidays) for kids up to 12 years and 60HKD (weekdays) / 70HKD… Continue reading Children’s Discovery Museum

HK Island, Indoor Playroom

Fun Zone Island East Playroom

We're looking for plenty of indoor play opportunities, now that it is rainy season and so hot/humid here in Hong Kong. That's why we gave Fun Zone in North Point a try.

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
