Summer is in full swing, so we have put together some top trips and Hong Kong family outings to keep everyone happy and busy. Please feel free to email us directly for any queries or suggestions.
Family Outing, Peak to Piers
Join a Hong Kong Greeters group tour. Hong Kong Island Peak to Piers is great for newbies. We offer an overview of the Island, skip-the-line access at the Peak, a tour of the food markets with a small snack. We also explore Old Town Central and Man Mo Temple.
Family Bicycle Fun
Active littlies will enjoy a trip to one of the many road safety bicycle training parks around town. Hire bikes in Sha Tin Park and pick from two parks – beginners will enjoy Sha Tin Bicycle Safety Park while advanced riders will love Shatin Adventure Cycling Arena. You can also hire bikes with child seats in Shatin Park. If you’re interested in a cycling tour. Please get in touch.
Hong Kong Beach Barbecue
Hit the water at Lower Cheung Sha beach. There are changing facilities, shallow waters for petit paddlers and plenty of restaurants to choose from. We love the Lantau Grocer, who can prepare a BBQ on the beach for you. Please note, advanced booking is required.
Hong Kong is blessed with a multitude of beaches. Consider visiting one of Hong Kong’s outlying islands where there is beach life aplenty.
Camping and Adventure Park
For a full-day (and night) of adventure, set sail from Central Ferry Piers for Cheung Chau island. Sai Yuen Farm has camping and an adventure park. We loved their tree- top canopy walk and their Segways.
Summerfest will be back in the Central Harbourfront event space for sports and family fun activities. We are hoping for the inflatable waterside again in 2019.

Mix culture and craft with a visit to Lai Chi Kok Park (Mei Foo MTR) for its Chinese gardens. Don’t forget paper and crayons for the brass rubbings.
