6 Reasons why Hong Kong is our dream destination!

by - August 17, 2015

My family and I have always wanted to travel together. But when the boys were still so little, it wasn't really that recommendable, because they won't remember it all. But now that my eldest son Athan is 7 and youngest Asher is almost 3 years old, I think that it's the perfect time to start planning a family trip! 

And what could better than Hong Kong? First off, we haven't been there yet. Second, it has so many amazing tourist attractions and third, it has always been a favorite spot for family vacations, because of its impressive variety of activities compactly and conveniently located in one dynamic city. :)

I also learned that with summer in Asia's World City rolling in, new features, exhibits, and prizes worth up to PHP 2.3B await visitors thanks to Hong Kong Summer Fun which runs until August 31, 2015! Now wouldn't this time of the month be the best time to go? :)

If you also haven't been to HK like my family and I, maybe this will be a great post for you to start knowing what are the activities and fun things you can do there! I did my research, so I want to share them with you. :)

1 - Frozen Village

The little ones and those young at heart will be raring to visit Hong Kong Disneyland as they have unveiled the Frozen Village. Based on the 2013 blockbuster animation, delve into a winter wonderland and prepare to be enchanted by beloved characters from the film. I'm sure the little girls will love to sing along to musical performances from Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and Kristoff, and if you're big Olaf fans like me and my son Asher, you might even get the chance to give that cute snowman a warm hug!

2- LINE friends at the Ocean Park

Characters from the popular messaging app LINE are heading over to Ocean Park Hong Kong for an exciting water party that's sure to beat the heat. Dive headfirst into a disco foam party, waterfall swings, and water mazes and slides with LINE friends Brown, Cony, and Sally at the Ocean Park Summer Splash 2015 for some aquatic adventure for mom, dad, and the kids. :)

3- 3D museums + 3D Light Show

Another thing I've always wanted to do on my Bucket list - go to a 3D museum!

3D museums add another dimension of fun as HK reveals new 3D displays around the city. Anime fanatics are in for a treat as the One Piece crew invades the Hong Kong 3D Museum were the whole family can pose with their favorite characters from the series. Visitors of all ages can also spend the day exploring the awesome world of 3D at the wildly popular Trick Eye Museum at the Peak Galleria Mall, as well as the Repulse Bay Visual Art Museum. After enjoying some sun, sand, and sea at the nearby Repulse Bay Beach, cap off the day with the HK Pulse 3D Light show which offers audiences a new summer-themed spectacle. 

4- Robots Rule

My husband is a huge Gundam fan, so if yours is too or your father or brother, then don't miss out on Robots Rule at The ONE Mall with seven-meter Mazinger Z for The ONE x Go Nagai Exhibition until August 31. :)

5- Madame Tussauds

Get ready to ooh and aah over Madame Tussauds' anniversary installations. In celebration of its 15th year, the world-famous wax museum recently opened two new zones which will have families snapping selfies left and right. The K-Wave Zone brings together some of South Korea's biggest stars like Kim Soohyun, Bae Yong Joon, TVXQ, 2PM's Nichhun, and Super Junior's Choi Siwon. The Kung Fu Zone also kicks off with some of kung fu's legendary icons, led by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and Donnie Yen.

Does it make me seem really old if I'm more interested with the Kung Fu zone? Or maybe cos I'm Chinese? haha!

6- HK Observation Wheel + Lan Kwai Fong

And let's not forget that Hong Kong isn't just for your family! It can also be the perfect travel place for you and your friends or maybe a getaway for you and your significant other. :)

You can go to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the city and then hit the streets of Lan Kwai Fong - Hong Kong's premiere Dining and Entertainment destination!:)

Hope I didn't overwhelm you with all the wonderful things HK has to offer, because wait! There's more! :) Aside from the exciting line-up of activities and exhibits, visitors will also receive a Welcome Gift upon arrival at the Hong Kong International Airport. Visitors can also download e-Coupons from http://www.discoverhongkong.com/ that unlock instant gourmet privileges, shopping discounts, and other unique offers. The Shop Eat Play VIP Card included in the Welcome Pack distributed at the pre-immigration hall of the HK International Airport also gives visitors exclusive offers and discounts from participating merchants. Finally, there's also the chance to win PHP 1.7M- worth (HK$300,000) trip to Hong Kong in the Return to Hong Kong Like A Millionaire grand draw.

Truly, it's a treat and perfect season to go to Asia's World City as Hong Kong's most popular destinations deck out to give the whole family an unforgettable visit with Hong Kong Summer Fun!:)
