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

Outdoor Activity, Outlying Islands

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

I had been on Lamma Island back in April when I first learnt about the Fisherfolk's Village, and now it is only May and I have already been there! So what is it? It is a folklore exhibition, showing how… Continue reading Lamma Fisherfolk’s Village

Lamma Island revisited – this time with a toddler!

Now that we've been to Cheng Chau and enjoyed the little island, we decided to revisit Lamma. We had been a few times, but it had been quite a few years back (here is my first post about Lamma, which summarises the island nicely). This time, we went as a group of four - two… Continue reading Lamma Island revisited – this time with a toddler!

Cheung Chau Island

I can't believe that Cheung Chau is one of the places I've never been before - I had been so many times to Lamma, Peng Chau and even Po Toi (which is further away and smaller). Anyway, it seems that whenever I had plans to Cheung Chau, the weather changed or it was a public… Continue reading Cheung Chau Island

Book tip: Hong Kong for Kids

I discovered great titles at the Hong Kong Public Library¬†- one of them is "Hong Kong for Kids - A Parent's Guide". It is by Cindy Miller Stephens and she wrote it after she noticed that there was no such guide around, and she kept asking friends and mums about some recommendations on what to… Continue reading Book tip: Hong Kong for Kids
