Review – Shangri La Kowloon – Hong Kong – Family Travel Blog

I love Hong Kong, its a big statement and one I tend to bang out regularly as I seem to find great things about every place I go to. I haven’t found a place yet that I haven’t liked. The first time I went to Hong Kong was on a girls trip in 2013 with my mum and my sister. The best thing (and possibly the worst) it started my love affair with all things Shangri La.

Review – Airbnb Apartment, Granville Rd, TST – Hong Kong – Family travel blog

In 2014 we took a family holiday to Hong Kong to take our 3 kids aged 5, 7 & 9 to Disneyland.

This means that a 2 week holiday would cost the same as a 4 week holiday for those with only 2 kids. A friend at work suggested we used AirBNB Hong Kong to help us cut down the costs of accommodation. I’m so glad I did!

Victoria Peak Tram with Kids – Family Travel Blog

The Victoria Peak Tramway is one of the busiest tourist attractions in Hong Kong and having been there twice I think it’s one that shouldn’t be missed. The tram departs from the central district through to the Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island and finishes at the Sky Terrace 428 where you will see the iconic view of Hong Kong over all the buildings. It covers a distance of 1.4 kms and an elevation of 400 metres. The tramway first opened on 28 May 1888 and took a total of 3 years to build. (more…)

As the date was getting closer I came to the conclusion that with the kids ages at the moment & the fact that they are exceptionally small for their ages (eg. 7 year old is the size of a 4 year old!) I decided this was not going to be the best option for us. (more…)
