Traveling to me means unwinding, relaxing, being carefree, and spending quality time with my loved ones. It is an opportunity to leave behind the hustle bustle of our day to day busy lives and explore a new culture, learn new stories, and have a new adventure to cherish forever.
Despite being a software developer with a hectic schedule, I always make sure to find time for a vacation that allows me to indulge in a mix of experiences – rejuvenation and exploration. I manage my work in such a way that allows me to visit new places, new attractions, and learn more about different people and their cultures.
For my family tip, I wanted a location that had something for everyone in my family – adventure parks, shopping for the ladies, sightseeing, theme parks, and a luxurious hotel. Belonging to the IT industry, I had heard of TravelTriangle on numerous accounts previously before finally booking my Mauritius honeymoon through the platform in December 2016. Recounting those utterly joyous experiences of my honeymoon, I knew I could trust TT with another trip!
Take A Peek Into Our 6 Days Hong Kong Family Trip
Here’s an entire account of the adventures we had during our 5 nights 6 days family trip to Hong Kong.
Day 1: Half Day City Tour Of Hong Kong
We reached Hong Kong in the morning. We were met by a representative of our tour agent at the airport who escorted us to our hotel, the Regal Oriental, which turned out to be an average option with okayish services. Since check-in time was 2 PM, we had to wait for the formalities to complete and for us to get to our room.
When we had finally freshened up in our room, we proceeded for a half day city tour of the city. We visited the encapsulating Victoria Peak where we enjoyed the mesmerising sunset that illuminated the city’s skyline. Next, we visited the quaint and traditional Aberdeen Fishing Village and clicked beautiful pictures. After a spot of shopping, we returned to our hotel.
Day 2: Having Crazy Fun At Disneyland
The most awaited day of our Hong Kong family trip was here! We got ready excitedly and proceeded for the highlight of our trip – Disneyland. It is nothing less of a fairyland. Equally fun for all age groups, I and my family had loads of fun here and we just didn’t want to go back!
Day 3: Fun & Frolic Moments At Ocean Park
This was again a very enjoyable day for us. We had not expected Hong Kong’s Ocean Park to turn out this fun and adventurous! Ocean Park. The biggest oceanarium in Asia, Ocean Park bestowed us with a close encounter with marine creatures like seahorses, clownfish, dolphins, sharks, as well as sea lions playing tricks with the ball at the Ocean Theatre.
The underwater tunnel and the shark gazing experience was simply out of this world. It’s a very enjoyable theme park with good roller coasters that everyone must visit with their families at least once.
Day 4: Ferry Ride To Macau & The Opulent Venetian Hotel

We packed our bags and checked out of the hotel after a nice breakfast. The ferry ride to Macau was a soothing, relaxing one, with glass-like water all around. Later, we checked into our hotel in Macau and spent the day in each other’s company.
Day 5: Half Day City Tour Of Macau
This day was reserved for a half day city tour of Macau. We visited attractions like the historical Ruins of St. Paul’s, the revered Na Tcha temple, the magnificent Old City Walls, the majestic Mount Fortress, and the holy A-Ma Temple.
Later, we enjoyed some leisure time at our hotel. Our stay at The Venetian was simply magical and very opulent.
Day 6: Bidding Goodbye To Hong Kong & Macau
After a lovely breakfast at the hotel, we returned to Hong Kong via ferry. The ferry got us back to Hong Kong really early in the morning, and since no hotel provides transfers to the airport this early, we had to book our own cab to get to the airport. We believe this could have been avoided had this been told to us beforehand. We boarded our flight back to Delhi with happy memories.

Tips For Future Travelers:
- Match your PAR form details with your passport alphabet to alphabet well in advance
- Carry a hard copy of the PAR forms with you on the trip
- Choose a hotel in Hong Kong that is not in the Kowloon city area (& that is not Regal Oriental!)
- Don’t hesitate to customize your trip. You can tailor everything as per your convenience, right down to the dates, flights, attractions, to even the hotels
- Stay at The Venetian if you’re visiting Macau
