With a constant crop of events and attractions, you’ll find the only thing you’ll be short of is time to fit it all in.
Hong Kong Disneyland
Recently celebrating its second anniversary, Mickeys South East Asian home has started to bounce back from the negative reviews it received on opening. While major rides are a little low on the ground, Disneyland is constantly opening more. Address: Hong Kong Disneyland, Sunny Bay. Hours: 10am -7pm daily.
Go See the Pink Dolphins
These rosy coloured sea mammals are easily Hong Kong's most amazing wildlife sight and their wave splashing acrobatics and a few hours on the open sea are sure to keep the kids from crying. The boats are well equipped with food, games and a gift shop for when the stars of the show fail to materialise, although the company boasts a 97% sighting success rate.
