No matter how old they are, there are a lot of things for kids to do in Hong Kong.
The city's excellent transportation system makes it easy to get around, Hong Kong is fairly compact, so visitors don't have to make long journeys to get from one attraction to another, and – best of all – many attractions are free, like the Avenue of Stars, or cost only a few dollars. Take the Star Ferry – a one-way upper deck fare costs all of HK$2.50 on weekdays, HK$3.40 at weekends and public holidays. As well as a charismatic way to cross the harbor, it's a mini sightseeing tour.
Few kids don't like theme parks, and Hong Kong can boast two – Disneyland on Lantau Island not far from the airport, and Ocean Park -- on Hong Kong Island – which is still going strong after nearly 40 years of operation.
Even the ordinary things about Hong Kong can be fun for kids, such as a trip to a market, which will be filled with colorful sounds, sights and – probably – unusual smells.
Here's a tip for parents: if your kids don't have a camera, there are some good deals in Hong Kong, and giving your kids a photo assignment is a great way to keep them occupied.
