My son wanted to go to disneyland for a long time and since we had promised him, it was time to plan a family vacation. I’m not internet friendly, so I asked my son to research on the internet for holiday packages that give us the best price. He recommended we use TravelTriangle for a family trip to Hong Kong.
After a discussion with Purusharth from TravelTriangle, I was satisfied with the package given to me and convinced that I was getting the best deal possible in the market. My son was over the moon once he got to know that we were finally going to his “favorite place in the world”. For a week before leaving I could not get to end my son’s questions about how Hong Kong is and what all we would do there. His excitement knew no bounds, and for that we very happy.
Below is the itinerary we followed in short for the 4 day trip to Hong Kong
Day 1: Flight from Mumbai to Hong Kong- checked into the hotel- city tour in the afternoon- return to hotel- dinner
Day 2- Breakfast- full day Disneyland tour- return to hotel- dinner.
Day 3- Breakfast- Full day Ocean Park tour- return to hotel- dinner
Day 4: Check out from hotel- Return flight to Mumbai
Theme parks for families in Hong Kong
Our major objectives of coming to Hong Kong was for our son to have fun in amazing theme parks like Disneyland, and for my husband and I to relax and take a break from our relentless city life in Mumbai. We were sure that Hong Kong theme parks would help us all in enjoying an amazing time of family bonding.

A dreamland for all, Disneyland is truly a wonderful places for people of all ages to go and enjoy. My husband and I initially were not sure of how we will spend our time while our son has the time of his life on the thrilling rides. But, upon arriving there we saw how many older people were there and how there was so much to do.

The crowd being less also helped us as there were virtually no queues to get into the popular attractions. We tried to cover all the popular six or seven theme based areas in Disneyland but as it turned out, one full day as well wasn’t enough to completely see disneyland.
Our favorite attractions: Tomorrowland, Main street USA, and Flights of fantasy parade
Price: INR 4,800 per person
Timings: 10.30am to 8 pm
Ocean Park, Hong Kong
On the penultimate day of our trip, we were scheduled to visit the mammal park/oceanarium called Ocean Park. Apart from Disneyland, this is the second most famous amusement park in Hong Kong and China.
Ocean Park has a nice mix of Rollercoasters, water rides, and animal entertainment shows for which people always showed up in huge attendance. The water rides inside the park are majorly divided into two parts. I must add that the rides in Ocean Park felt more dangerous because of the heights they reach with the rollercoaster and how you go splashing down into water while on a water ride.
My son was brave, excited, and determined to get on as many rides as he can. My husband accompanied him wherever he could and I took a sort of a back seat for this day due to my hesitation with height.
Our favorite attractions: Grand Aquarium, Giant Panda adventure, and the Polar Adventure
Price: INR 3200 per person
Timings: 10 am to 7 pm
It was the best time to visit Hong Kong for a family because Disneyland and Ocean Park were almost empty due to the exams of the local children. My son got a chance to go to each ride at least 3-4 times. My husband and I saw our child tire himself to bits in these four as he had the time of his lives. The overall experience with TravelTriangle was really good. I am planning to go to Andaman in December, and I would love to book with TravelTriangle again.
- The breakfast served at the hotel was very delicious.
- For my son, Ocean Park and Disneyland was an amazing experience.
- The cab driver delays were pretty annoying.
Tips to Travelers:
- Take Hong Kong Dollars from India as the currency conversion rate in Hong Kong is much expensive.
This family had an awesome time with their kids at Disneyland & Ocean Park in Hong Kong. You too can experience the fun with your loved ones and make memories of a lifetime. Simply book a Family Hong Kong Package and let us do the planning for you.
