Hong Kong weekend ideas for potential new residents

Jump to last reply

Hong Kong residents, may I pick your collective brain? We have never been to HK, and now we may be moving in!

We are thinking of doing a family long weekend, maybe as soon as the Diwali school break mid-November. Our mission for this trip will be different than typical, as we won't need to tick a bunch of boxes off the tourist list. We really just want to get a feel for the city and give our kids (4 & 5) a nice memory or two so they can get excited about the move.

What do you think about the following:

Arrive Saturday afternoon
Catch nighttime skyline view ("symphony of lights?")

Sunday
Victoria Peak tram
visit a good playground (suggestions welcome)
wander about a typical residential neighborhood (Midlevels? Pokfulam?)

Monday
Disney (kids have been asking for this for a while - it's non-negotiable!)

Tuesday morning
Shopping

Fly out Tuesday afternoon

For hotels, looking at the Salisbury.

Any suggestions much appreciated, and if someone wants to offer other advice about living in HK, that is most welcome, too.

Thank you!
