HK trip 6D5N

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i'll be going to HK mid of next month.(Dec) bring my parents and my kids. First time going. Any suggestion for attraction places and nice foods? The places that i will  go are disneyland, ocean park and lantau island. Other than that, no more idea.  Disneyland (1 day). Ocean park & Lantau island (is it enough for half day or need to spend whole day?) if half day, any interesting place to visit nearby ocean park? 

 

I'll staying at Ibis hotel ( sheung wan). Any recommeded foods to eat and interesting places to visit around the hotel that i stay? 

 

May i know what transport is better to use (bus, taxi or train) from airport to Ibis Hotel? as i'll arrive in HK at 1pm.

 

Lantau island is it near the peak and the Ngo Ping 360? 

 

Sorry for asking a lot of questions

 

thanks

To eat near the hotel (within ten minute walk), there is:

 

-Kau Kee (known for their beef brisket noodle): http://www.openrice.com/english/restaurant/sr2.htm?shopid=1618

-Sang Kee (known for their porridge/congee - their fish belly and chicken marinated in wine especially good): http://www.openrice.com/english/restaurant/sr2.htm?shopid=3023&tc=sr1

 

For coffee shops in Sheung Wan for a break there is:

-Common Room

-Brew Bros

-18 Grams

 

Tea place to relax:

-Teakha (the area of Tai Ping Shan has nice boutiques shops as well. a mix of local and newer shops)

 

For quickness, you can take the airport express to "Hong Kong" station, which is the last stop, then there is a free shuttle that drops you off at your hotel.

But you with quite some people it could be more convenient to take taxi, because take airport express also not very cheap. Most hk taxi can sit 5 people, and car storage can put 2-3 suitcase.

Look alright but the Victoria Park visit on the 1st day seems odd as it's located in Causeway Bay, you'll have to go back and forth between Central and Causeway Bay. Are you visiting there for any special purpose? Or is it Hong Kong Park located near Peak Tram terminal instead (which's more make sense since you're going to The Peak after that)

 

There are nothing around Disneyland except a man made lake and the 2 Disney hotels, so you'll have to do all the dining inside the park I'm afraid. You've no choice.

 

The Sneakers Street (actual name is Fa Yuen Street) is in Mongkok and not close to Ocean Park at all. 

 

Citygate Outlet Mall in Tung Chung is where you can shop after the Big Buddha visit and cable car ride. You may have veggie lunch (set menu) in Po Lin Monastery. Remember to purchase the meal vouchers at Big Buddha ticketing booth (downstairs the Big Buddha) once you arrive because sometimes it may be sold out especially during weekends/holidays. Other than the Buddha itself, follow signs and walk to Wisdom Path which takes roughly 30mins or so, nice place with scenic nature view. 

 

There is an old and traditional dim sum tea house named Lin Heung in Sheung Wan that's worth to try. It's the very old type of tea house that patrons need to grab seats and grab dim sum by themselves, as well as share table with strangers. If you don't mind helping yourself and the slightly messy environment, it's quite a good way to experience the old-hong-kong lifestyle though.

For breakfast around sheung wan area,u can either go hoi on(海安)for breakfast or tea,it is a local coffe shop which operate more than half century

 

Another hong kong style coffe shop you can consider is foh kee(科记),their pork chop and curry buff+onion toast are nice,although the price is slightly expendsive

 

If you prefer the western style of breakfast,u can try green lounge,their egg benedict with prawn is not bad.

 

For Dim Sum i would recommend Lin heong lau(莲香楼) and luk yu(陆羽),both of them located at central so u might need to grab a cab or take MRT if wanna go there for breakfast.

 

As for inside harbour city mall,u can try out the House of Jasmine(八月居),both their dimsum and cantone dishes are not bad.

 

For going back i would recommend you took the airport express at hong kong station as you can done all your bagague check in and borading pass at the station.for 1.30PM flight i would recommend u reach hong kong station latest by 10.30am,after done the check in u might be reaching hong kong airport around 11.30,then u still can have plenty of time to do some shopping in the airport or grab a meal before the flight.
