4. Hong Kong Park walk
Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and spend some quality time as a family at Hong Kong Park, an oasis of calm and undeveloped green space in the heart of Hong Kong. The park, only a ten-minutes stroll from Pasitos (sister brand from The Spanish Academy), features eight hectares of century-old trees and vivid blooming flowers, including the iconic bombax ceiba (aka red cotton tree)
The park features a sparkling man-made lake and waterfall and attracts many different kinds of birds, including blue-winged leafbirds, golden pheasants, and white-crested hornbills. It is definitely a perfect space for families to enjoy outdoor time with their little ones.

5. Sai Kung Country Park getaway
Indeed, it is by far one of our favourite places to get lost on an outdoorsy day. Or even a weekend if you are into camping, 🙂
There’s more to Hong Kong than just its urban landscape and fast pace. If you and your loved ones are looking for a fun and exciting way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, consider taking a trip to one of Hong Kong’s many scenic parks.
Sai Kung is one of the most visited country parks in Hong Kong, and its 4,494 hectares include both inland and coastal areas. Sai Wan, Ham Tin Wan, Tai Wan, and Tung Wan are some of the most beautiful beaches in the territory, and the park also features gorgeous hiking paths. The park’s main draws are the beautiful stretches of white sand beach that are backed by forested hills and offer a serene environment for rejuvenating family outings.
