Hi everyone! We will be in HK for 5 days- arriving very early on the 1st day (we arrive at 7:40AM, and flight leaves 7:30PM on the 5th day.
Kindly take a look at our itinerary and I'd appreciate your comments. Traveling with my husband and 3year old daughter so I made sure we have a lot of down times for her to rest.
1st Day: 10AM arrival at the hotel. Leave luggage. We'd be lucky if we will be allowed to check in that early, so let's say we don't, from 10AM to the time of check-in, I plan for us to just have lunch at Fu sing, go to Victoria park and shop around Causeway Bay.
2PM-5PM rest at the hotel
5PM -8PM go to Tim ho wan, shop at Central
8PM dinner at Lin heung or Ebeneezer's
2nd Day: 10AM breakfast at 18grams
Proceed to Ngongping and shop at City Gate after (don't have place for lunch yet)
4 or 5PM go to The Peak
Have some noodles at Mak's
Either go back to the hotel or proceed to Yardbird for dinner
8PM- shop at nearby mall around Causeway bay till closing time (while hubby and toddler wait at the hotel)
3rd Day: for the past few times we've been to HK, we always stayed at Causeway bay so I planned for us to go take the ferry to Kowloon on our 3rd day, I initially planned to go in the morning but we want to stay till the symphony of lights which is at 8PM so morning till 8PM with my 3 year old might not be good idea (we're not bringing our stroller). Would 6 hours be enough to walk around the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade? I want us to have tea at the Peninsula but I am not sure if I can take the 2 hours queue only to enjoy the tea for half an hour.
4th-5th Day: My daughter's 3rd birthday :) checking out at Causeway Bay and moving to Disneyland Hotel to make it more special for her. We got a 2- day pass as we know we won't be able to stay at the park the whole time on the first day.
5th day- Disneyland from 10AM-3PM. We have to be at the airport by 4:30PM for our 7:30PM flight.
Is it worth it to squeeze in a day for Ocean Park? I know the rides are catered for older kids and we have to dedicate an entire day for it. I thought of just bringing my daughter there when she's 5 or 7 but now that it's just a few days before the trip, I'm having second thoughts. Should we move the Kowloon trip to 1st day so we can still do Ocean Park? I know that would be less shopping time for me, but what do you think?
Thanks in advance and sorry I bored you with the details :)
