We planning for disney,Macau, She Zhen, Zhou Hai.we have 2 kids 9 and 3 yo. Which should we do 1st after landing
When do you arrive? Where are you staying?
well, what time is your landing?
It is a triangle..where you like the apex to be.
But guess what..what will 2 kids say ..of course Disneyland Disneyland...
What do you plan to do in Shenzhen and Zhuhai?
Zhuhai could be a good place to go these days with the recently open Chimelong Aquarium. I haven't gone there myself but I know somebody who took her kids there and they were thoroughly impressed.
Shenzhen: Maybe Windows of the World if you like that kind of stuff. Otherwise, it's really a commercial city with some low-end bargain shopping. Anything branded will be cheaper in HK.
Personally, i would try my best to spend more time in Hong Kong than in Shenzhen and Macau. I don't think theres much to do in Shenzhen and Macau. Considering that you have 2 kids, going to Macau would be a bit of lowdown because Macau is mainly casinos and I don't think your 9yr old will be impress with the casinos just yet.
In Hong Kong, other than Ocean Park, your kids may like to visit:
- Hong Kong Science Museum
- Ocean Park
- Mong Kok (toys, food)
>>> Anything branded will be cheaper in HK.
Well... depends on whether you have the branded product produced by the brand owner (which is so expensive it's subject to luxury tax), or an unauthorised copy which may look exactly the same.
In Hong Kong, when you're in a branded shop, you can be pretty sure the shop is really from that brand. In Shenzhen, not so much. Prices in those copy-shops are very likely lower than the prices in Hong Kong - and if they do it well, that's pretty much the only way to tell the difference. Which is one of the reasons mainlanders like to go shop in Hong Kong...

Sounds like its time to make a trip over Macau and see what is available these days. They have been adding new attractions continuously for several years and there is now 2-3 days worth of attractions to see without setting foot into a casino.
For starters there are over 30 inclusions in the UNESCO - Macau World Heritage. For children the Macau Science Centre is every bit as good as the Hong Kong Science Museum and the newly started Dreamcast Experience at Sands Cotai Central is receiving a lot of positive reviews. Below are some resources for what you can see/do in Macau (sorted by area) if helpful.

Also worth checking out the Macau Government Tourist Office official website as well. While its not as well developed as our Discover Hong Kong website, its pretty good!
Also, lots of monthly events in Macau, some months even more than we have going on in Hong Kong. See the What's On Macau website.
Hope this is useful.
where it's good to shop for toys in Mong Kok and where can find gd local.food there. Likes steam egg white with milk and ginger. Millions thanks
Why are there so many threads - I counted 4 threads for this topic? Many questions were raised such as when you are arriving, where you are staying.
There was absolutely no acknowledgement of what's been posted and suggested, and you proceeded on with new questions - making it very frustrating trying to help you.
We are landing Ard 540am. Should we go straight to Macau and come back Hong kangaroo on the 2nd day of the tour or. Place advice. Yka
