NOTE

  1. Ocean Park

    “Connecting people with nature” is what it’s all about at Ocean Park. The Giant Panda Habitat, Atoll Reef, Sea Jelly Spectacular and Dolphin University exhibits will keep children engrossed for hours. Older kids will love the supervised sessions where you can touch some of the animals. The park also features around 20 exciting rides, including the Mine Train rollercoaster and Raging River ride, which are located in Adventure Land .

  2. Science Museum

    There is lots of hands-on stuff here, providing a fun and educational introduction to many facets of science. Any child with a healthy dose of curiosity will spend hours pushing buttons, pulling levers and marvelling at gadgets.

  3. Zoological and Botanical Gardens

    Founded in 1864, a modicum of Victorian gentility survives here in the wrought-iron bandstand and shrub-lined paths. Not, however, in the monkey house, where the world’s largest collection of red-cheeked gibbons shriek and swing and copulate. Be prepared for some judicious covering of young eyes. Also jaguars, leopards, kangaroos and 280 species of birds.

    Jaguar, Zoological Gardens
  4. Dolphin Watching

    Be quick, because the sorry state of Hong Kong waters is fast killing off the rare Chinese white dolphins, which here in the Pearl River delta are pale pink.

  5. Hong Kong Disneyland

    The mighty mouse wisely used feng shui in the design of his latest Asian venture, but otherwise there are few nods to local culture. Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland lie beyond Main Street, USA.

    • Lantau Island, served by its own MTR station

    • 330 830 for hours and today’s tickets

    • park.hongkongdisneyland.com for advance booking (recommended)

  6. Lions Nature Education Centre

    The Lions Nature Education Centre is actually much more fun than it sounds. There are fruit orchards, an arboretum, rock gardens and, best of all, an insectarium. Big brothers will find plenty of interesting creepy-crawlies with which to scare little sisters.

    • Tsiu Hang, Sai Kung, New Territories

    • 2792 2234

    • 9:30am–5pm. Closed Tue

  7. Ngong Ping

    The spectacular 25-minute cable car journey from the hustle and bustle of the city, across open water and up the steep hillside from Tung Chung to the Big Buddha at Po Lin is the best funfair ride in town .

    Lantau Island

  8. Tram Tour

    Rock, rattle and roll along the front of Hong Kong Island, or take a detour around Happy Valley. Hong Kong’s trams may be crowded, slow and noisy, but they are terrific for sightseeing .

  9. Kowloon Park

    The green lungs of Tsim Sha Tsui have a huge indoor-outdoor swimming pool and lots of gardens to wander about. There’s also an aviary.

  10. Snoopy’s World

    Good grief! Hang out with the famous beagle and his hapless master Charlie Brown in this colourful tribute to the late Charles Schulz’s much-loved comic strip. Two-metre (6-ft) high mechanical characters and 60 other Peanuts figures inhabit the playground.

    • L3 Podium, New Town Plaza, Sha Tin, New Territories
