First things first, ask yourself, "Why are you going to HongKong?" 

If the answer is to have some family fun with your kids, then this itinerary could be a good start for you.


  • 10AM - HongKong International Airport (HKIA) arrival.  Would take you 30 minutes or less to clear immigration, especially if you are travelling light, but takes more if you have kids and alot of checked-in baggage.  We bought our HK sim cards near the arrival area before heading to the taxi stand.
  • 11AM - Boarded taxi to HK Disneyland (take the green taxi it is cheaper, cost us 100HKD - 2adults+2kids with 2 baggages)
  • 12NN - Checked in at HK Disneyland Hollywood Hotel
  • 1PM - HK Disneyland Park (had lunch at the Main Street Corner Cafe - fantastic seafood ramen meal -  must try!)
  • 8PM - Fire works (we were so busy, we forgot to eat, so we just grabbed some delicious looking pastries from the Market House Bakery - yummy!)
  • 9PM - Back to hotel to re-charge


  • 7AM - Early start, day 2 is loaded!
  • 730AM - Breakfast at Cafe Mickey
  • 830AM - Some swimming at the HKDL Hollywood Hotel Piano Pool
  • 930AM - Toured HKDL Hollywood Hotel grounds
  • 10AM - Hotel check out (we left our stuffs at the hotel concierge and headed to HKDL park)
  • 1015 - HKDL PARK PART II (souvenir shopping time)
  • 3PM - Picked up our luggage and left HKDL for TST Kowloon Island.  We took the taxi going to TST for convenience. It would be difficult to carry our luggage with tired complaining kids.  
  • 4PM - Check in YMCA Hotel TST (very nice - see separate blog on YMCA)
  • 6PM - HK Arts Museum and HK Space Museum -  just across YMCA
  • 7PM - Dinner (so tired we ended ordering room service)  



  • 9AM - McDonalds Breakfast
  • 930AM - Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery (via MTR from TST alighted at Diamond Hill) - try eating at their vegetarian restaurant...
  • 11AM - The Peak - lower terminus (from Diamond Hill to Central) 
  • 12NN -  The Peak via the Peak Tram (must try)
  • 1PM - Madame Tussaud (good for picture taking).
  • 3PM - Back to YMCA (to Central MTR station via open top bus. This is a must try - the kids were ecstatic! From Central we took the Star Ferry and ended at the Harbour City Center. The kids were overjoyed to see HK's ToyKingdom - and yes we ended buying toys there too!). 
  • 5PM - KFC dinner, then back to base camp


  • 8AM - Central via Star Ferry 
  • 9AM - Bus to Ocean Park
  • 10PM - Ocean Park (we had lunch at the Panda Cafe, but was not satisfied with the service nor the food)
  • 4PM - Left the OP and back to base camp
  • 530PM - Dinner at Charlie Brown's Cafe
  • 7PM - Sneaked out - left the kids with their father and went shopping :)


  • 8AM - Breakfast at the hotel (Mall Cafe)
  • 9AM - Kowloon Park (This is actually very good.  I recommend you try this - free and fun, your kids are sure to have fun!)
  • 1030AM - HK Museum of History
  • 12NN - HK Science Museum (my family loves museum)
  • 2PM - Late lunch at TGIF
  • 330PM - Some more pasalubong shopping at Koi Kei, then back to hotel to rest a bit
  • 5PM - Off to the airport via taxi (taking the cab rather than taking the MTR or the hotel bus proves to be more convenient and economical if you are with kids and  baggages)
  • 6PM - HKIA
  • 8PM - Back to Manila
It is difficult to squeeze in too many activities if you are travelling with kids.  They tend to be cranky late in the afternoon - since this trip is for them, I had to tone down my addiction to shopping and just do it on the side strip :)

  1. Hello Juvyann! We are planning to go to HK in September. Is it a good time? There'll be 3 of us: my husband, my 3-year old son and I.

    We also intend to stay at HK Disneyland Hotel, but only for a night--probably dun kami manggagaling before heading to the airport. My rationale is that so we could rest properly after a super tiring pag-iikot sa Disneyland at naka-ready na ang gamit sa hotel. Is this a good idea or is Disneyland too far from the airport?

    May I also ask what other hotel you can recommend? 4 days 3 night kami.

    Thank you very much Mommy!

  2. I can't really comment on the weather. I have been in HK several times already, June, July and November - so far, we have had fairly good weather.

    Try YMCA Hotel in TST (please check my related blog on TST -

    The hotel is very clean and safe. Rates includes buffet breakfast. Location is very good (across numerous museums, if museum hopping is your thing: HK Science Museum, HK Museum of Art, Space Museum and HK Museum of History). MTR is just a few steps away, (so travel is easy even if you have a child).

    Regarding Disneyland, actually is nearer the airport than the city proper. We did Disneyland first (took a cab from the airport), then TST after. From Disneyland you can take a taxi, bus or MRT to the city proper.

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.


Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.

Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Family Swimming Getaway Near the Metro ~ Cattleya Resorts Antipolo

I was the designated scout for a recent family swimming getaway. The task was simple enough:  Find an affordable, clean private pool venue for a 20+ persons, near the Metro (with no more than 30 minutes to 1 hour travel)... GOODLUCK ME!   So where do I find one? We are from Taytay and my bets are private pool rentals in Tanay and Antipolo.    Our search led us to Cattleya Resorts in Antipolo, just 30 minutes away from where we live. Cattleya Resorts as of writing is made up of nine (9) private rental pools. Rental price range from P4500 to P12000 for day (9am-5pm)use and P5500 to P14000 for a night (7pm-7am) use.  Corazon - day P12000 / night P14000 Isabel - day P10000 / night P12000 Cristina- day P7000 / night P9000 Dominique- day P10000 / night P12000 Maricor- day P8000 / night P10000 Catherine- day P7000 / night P9000 Arabella- day P7000 / night P9000 Patricia- day P4500 / night P5500 Imelda- day P4500 / night P5500 Pools 1 to 7 are good for 50 persons, while pools 8 and 9 are good for 12 person…
