    Stanley mkt. I usually take a bus up. Drop by the library, off to the playroom. If the weather is good, we walk on the boardwalk and off to the beach. Eat some ice cream then go home. The only thing i dislike is the journey up. My son has motion sickness :-[

    U can check the library storytelling time here

    Kids + Water + Sand == Hours of fun.
    Hong Kong island has a number of beaches:

    There are also many pools on the island suitable for kids to splash in shallow water:

    If outdoor is not your thing, then indoor playgrounds are also fun:

    The Coastal Defence Museum on the Eastern Side is a place where they can run around in the moat and walk through an old fort. The Fireboat in Quarry Bay is also ok for kids to play on.

    Heck, with my kids, just riding the tram back and forth across the city is sensory overload for them. Counting cars, buses, lights, cameras, etc. They have fun sitting in the top seat just looking out the window.

    HK public swimming pools often are quite good--the one out by us has a free children's pool--others even have a small water slide!
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
