You need to see it to believe it. Hong Kong, the name in itself is symbolic of uncountable skyscrapers, bustling and crowded city and some crazy nights. It also is as much about good food, multiculturalism, great attractions and places for sightseeing and is the perfect place for kids. Home to Disneyland this city is very fascinating and exciting and offers many places worth exploring and that is all that Dharna wanted when she planned on taking a family trip. She and her husband wanted them and their children to see and explore the eastern part of the world and with their Hong Kong itinerary for 7 days they did exactly that.
For a major part of our lives we have lived in the Middle East and we already have explored some parts of Africa and Europe, so we had a feeling that it was time for us to take a trip to the eastern part of the world and that is how we decided on Hong Kong. Also, we wanted our children to see the magical Disneyland before they grew up so it was hands down Hong Kong where we were going and we think that it was one of the best decisions we made till date. Be it shopping in Hong Kong or the weather everything was fantastic and we had lots of fun. Read our journey as we elaborate on how was that.
Weather In Hong Kong In May
The weather in Hong Kong in May was great. It’s said that May-September is the typhoon season in Hong Kong but we honestly did not face any hardships during our trip. Yes, it was drizzling consistently but it was great. We had the ultimate fun during our time there and a little rain never harmed anyone, so it all turned out positive for us.

Things To Do In Hong Kong
Here we have listed out some of the things we did and the experiences we had that made our trip to Hong Kong a memorable affair.
1. Macau – Sightseeing
We visited Macau and what an experience it was! Also known as the ‘Vegas of China’, Macau is all about glitz and glamour. With its cultural heritage and awe-inspiring skyline, Macau was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun there. Also, the food there was delicious and watched House of Dancing Water Show and went to see the Macau Tower which is unbelievably beautiful.
2. Hong Kong – Exploration
We visited ‘Asia’s World City’ and what an experience it was! We explored the place at our pace and enjoyed a lot. There was no dearth of places to see and we felt it was the best place we visited on our trip. We visited Jewellery City, took a tram ride and had an experience on the ferry too. We also saw a unique light and sound show called Symphony of Light At Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.
3. Disneyland – Visit
This was the most awaited part of our entire trip. Not just for the kids but for us too because their happiness and joy is the very reason we planned this trip and they enjoyed to the core here. We embarked on a magical journey through the seven themed lands- Adventureland, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and many more.
4. Ocean Park – Tour
We took a tour of the fascinating Ocean Park and got to know that it was awarded the biannual Applause Award in 2012, the most prestigious award in the amusement and theme park industry and we now know why. Opened in 1977, this place is a marine life theme park and offered us a great experience. We explored Ocean Park Tower and the many aquariums.
Our Hotels In Hong Kong
We stayed at The Venetian in Macau and other different hotels like the Harbour Plaza 8 Degrees in Hong Kong which was a part of our Hong Kong Itinerary For 7 Days. The Venetian with its well-maintained rooms and the great location was fantastic and Harbour Plaza 8 Degrees in Hong Kong located amidst a busy market was amazing too.
Food In Hong Kong
As it was more convenient for us to eat in the comfort of our own room we ordered room service most of the times at The Venetian. We felt it was pretty economical to order room service at The Venetian so we hardly tried anything outside but what we had in the hotel was amazing. The food at the hotel in Hong Kong was great too.
Shopping In Hong Kong
As a part of our Hong Kong Itinerary For 7 Days we also shopped at the place and it was a great experience overall. We carried back home not just memories but many cute souvenirs with us. Wanchai area in Hong Kong was one of the best places to shop from. Causeway Bay was another great place we went to for shopping.
