Once the school alarm sounds and another year has ended it often feels like a massive exodus of families leaving Hong Kong for adventures a far. Yet, many families do stick around to enjoy all that Hong Kong has to offer with many fun, educational, and creative activities to appease and delight the children.
Though July and August are the wettest months of the year and the heat and humidity can leave you feeling like you are roasting over an open fire, there is still much to appreciate and experience. Hong Kong is often quieter and less crowded; there are fewer queues and you will be impressed to find more available car parking spaces. The beaches, parks, residential and local playgrounds will feel like your own backyard and you’ll encounter a more serene Hong Kong.
It can seem daunting when thinking about what to do with the kids during all those weeks off school. How does one tackle the boredom of spending more hours at home? Being away from little friends and not to mention what to do with all that endless energy?!
Time to take a breath and relax, because we’ve found some great courses that will be sure to tick all the boxes!
