Hong Kong has always been the family’s ultimate playground and is the destination of choice for vacations and celebrations. It’s because of the impressive variety of activities and beautiful places that’s packed in one city! That was where we went three years ago when peanutbutter♥ came home from Dubai.
We explored Disneyland and one day wasn’t enough to see each and every attraction there. It was sad that we were only there for three days. Time was limited and we didn’t get to see all the places we wanted. I do hope you are going to Hong Kong this year, though because Asia’s World City will be rolling in new features, exhibits, and prizes worth up to ₱ 2.3B, thanks to Hong Kong Summer Fun which runs until August 31, 2015.
The little ones and those young at heart will be raring to visit world-class theme parks as Hong Kong Disneyland unveils the Frozen Village. Based on the 2013 blockbuster animation, delve into a winter wonderland and prepare to be enchanted by beloved characters from the film. Sing along to musical performances from Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and Kristoff, and get the chance to give Olaf a warm hug and hop on a thrilling toboggan sleigh ride.
Meanwhile, characters from the popular messaging app LINE are heading over to Ocean Park Hong Kong for an exciting water party that’s sure to beat the heat. Dive headfirst into a disco foam party, waterfall swings, and water mazes and slides with LINE friends Brown, Cony, and Sally at the Ocean Park Summer Splash 2015 for some aquatic adventure for mom, dad, and the kids.
Get ready to ooh and aah over Hong Kong museums’ new exhibits, starting with Madame Tussauds’ anniversary installations. In celebration of its 15th year, the world-famous wax museum recently opened two new zones which will have families snapping selfies left and right. The K-Wave Zone brings together some of South Korea’s biggest stars like Kim Soohyun, Bae Yong Joon, TVXQ, 2PM’s Nichkhun, and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon. The Kung Fu Zone also kicks off with some of kung fu’s legendary icons, led by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and Donnie Yen.
3D museums add another dimension of fun as Hong Kong reveals new 3D displays around the city. Anime fanatics are in for a treat as the One Piece crew invades the Hong Kong 3D Museum where the whole family can pose with their favorite characters from the series. Visitors of all ages can also spend the day exploring the awesome world of 3D at the wildly popular Trick Eye Museum at the Peak Galleria Mall, as well as at the Repulse Bay Visual Art Museum. After enjoying some sun, sand, and sea at the nearby Repulse Bay Beach, cap off the day with the Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show which offers audiences a new summer-themed spectacle.
Hong Kong’s malls join in the revelry with added attractions to look forward to. Harbour City is hosting the Where’s Wally Hong Kong Adventure until August 9, which celebrates globetrotter Wally’s first time in Asia. Times Square is also featuring Gundam Docks II from August 1 to 31, while robots rule at The ONE Mall with a seven-meter Mazinger Z for The ONE x Go Nagai Exhibition until August 31.
