Macau: Giant Pandas

Did you know that Macau is home to four giant pandas? Not many people are aware of that, and so it was no surprise that when we went and visited one Wednesday in January 2019, hardly any people were visiting this great location. The pandas live in the Seac Pai Van Park, which is in… Continue reading Macau: Giant Pandas

Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay

My children love anything and everything that is sweet - and they are big fans of waffles and pancakes. Usually we don't have the time or patience to wait for our turn at the long queue at Mammy Pancake, but during the last few days we've been lucky: the queue was not too long and… Continue reading Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay

HK Island, Indoor Playroom

Wise Kids Playroom

This post has been long overdue - the Wise Kids Playroom is one of our favourite hangout places.

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

New Territories, Outdoor Activity

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

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
