Places to Visit when on a family trip to Hong Kong
1. Hong Kong At A Glance
After we landed, we were pleased to find that it was raining and the weather was very pleasant. We realized that this was probably the best time to reach Hong Kong. After resting for a while on the day we reached Hong Kong, we set on to explore the city with a night tour. What attracted us most were the glistening sky scrapers that ran all into the sky. The streets were bustling with the noise of the warm and friendly locals. We took a junk boat ride through the Victoria Harbor and it was a great expereince riding through the high towers, with soothing background music. The ride de-stressed our minds and body completely and we were all the more excited for our upcoming adventures.
2. The Peak Tram Illusion
Riding on The Victoria Peak Tram was also an expereince we would count on while on our family trip to Hong Kong. The tram was the world’s steepest ride which took us about 396 meters above the sea level. At a certain level, we felt that the buildings were leaning at a certain gradient. At the peak, we found a great number of shops and restaurants and also an amazing collection of the must-visit places in Hong Kong.
As, it was my child’s birthday today, we decided to celebrate it in the best posssible way and therefore, we visited the Disneyland. Seeing all the cartoons wandering right in front of us reminded me of our days when we used to watch them on television and never thought that someday we would actually get to visit these wonderful places. We could see our child’s excitement in the glitter of his eyes and besides that, we were actually more excited than him. We also saw an artificial man-made animal and also clicked, any pictures with the cartoons, and movie characters. Above all, the light and sound show at Disneyland was a great success and expereince one must not miss.
4. Ocean Park
We were surprised to see the animas who were so well-trained. We were happy to see that there were baby strollers available which made it easy for us to carry our child. The Dolphin Dance was the major highlight of the show and something that caught our attractions to the core. We also enjoyed a ride to the man-made underwater park.
5. Cable Car
Totally impressed by the rules and regulations of the country and on reaching the cable car spot, we were impressed to see that there were no VIP rules and people were waiting very patiently in long queues. Moreover, the ultimate experience in Hong Kong that I recommend people to take when on a holiday is the cable car ride. It is one of a kind experience where we were greeted by vistas of the sea and the rolling greens. The breathtaking panaromic views made our day. On reaching the top we visited the various Buddha stupas and dined at the Punjabi Dhaba available.
