Hong Kong’s First DIY Korean Ramyun

The first of its kind in Hong Kong, Noodle Bridge is tucked in North Point – have the kids feel independent as they choose their Korean ramen and make it themselves (don’t worry, the friendly staff will monitor their every step!). There are 17 flavours (with one halal option which is the carbonara dry noodles) to choose from and different toppings like kimchi, sausage and egg.

Feel Weightless In A Bubble Football

Get ready to climb inside a giant, inflatable bubble and crash your way to victory in this epic sport (in cooler climes, of course!). The bubbles come in different sizes so the whole family can join in the fun. Plus, you bubble suits will glow in the dark – bound to bring out your inner child!

Take The Kids Squid Fishing

Summer not only sees the start of junk season, but also squid fishing season. Pack your kids, the wine, your M&S snacks, and jump aboard to hone your fishing skills. If soaking up the sounds of the sea and views of the harbour is more your thing, you can simply enjoy the squid already packed by the junk boat company but we highly recommend you try it out yourself!

Sassy Mama Tip: This experience is BYOB and only takes place at night (7pm to 11pm)

Check out our junk boat guide for squid fishing charters.

Try A Camping Themed Barbecue

You can’t live in Hong Kong without going for barbecue or camping! But have at it at both at this themed restaurant, Hearth has set up a campsite environment for you to have fun with grilled meats even in the hustle city. We love this option as we get to have a “camping” experience as a family without having to lug around our tents with kids in tow!

Hearth, Shop 314, 3/F, K11 Art Mall, 18 Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong,

Tai O Pink Dolphin Spotting

If, like us, you sometimes find Hong Kong’s hustle and bustle too much, take a trip out to Tai O, one of Hong Kong’s fishing villages. A quaint little fishing village, with houses on stilts, this is a lovely day out for the whole family – or weekend getaway if you want more time. Definitely add this to your Hong Kong bucket list – some people live here for years and don’t stumble upon it.

The main thing to do in Tai O include taking a boat out from the village and heading out to the ocean to try and spot pink dolphins. You can then wander round the village and enjoy island life.

Sassy Mama Tip: We recommend staying at the Tai O Heritage Hotel if you’re going to make a weekend of it.

Go Skiing – Indoors!

If you ask a Hong Konger, they’re still slightly hopeful to see snow in Hong Kong but reality check, that ain’t happening! What if we told you that it’s possible to go skiing and snowboarding without booking a flight to Japan? Snow & Surf offers private training for families and 55 minutes slope access for skiing and snowboarding – we also think this is a great start before hitting actual ski slopes!

Walk Across The Sea!

You know when you’re trying to get across the harbour and Google Map tells you to walk? Well, walking across from one island to another is possible but only at Sharp Island. Also known as “Fairy Walk”, it’s a 200-meter-long path made of rocks, pebbles and sediments transported by waves and wind to connect Kiu Tsui Beach to its neighbouring Kiu Tau islet – truly a unique Hong Kong experience!

Battle It Out At Laser Tag

We have to confess, we’ve done this a few times with the gals and we love it! Not only is it a great – and rather mad – Mamas day out, but it’s also perfect for the whole family. Think dramatic music, UV lights, laser sound effects and two weapons of choice, participants can let their minds run wild as they battle to the end.

Become A Ninja For A Day

Have a kid that could climb just about anything? They’ll love Ninja Force, an obstacle course spanning 18,000 square feet, set in the backdrop of Kam Tin. You can opt for Open Play where you can explore the swings, walls and hanging doors at your own pace or sign your kids up for weekly classes.

Feed Alpacas!

No, it’s not Peru, it’s alpacas in Hong Kong! At Go Green Organic Pineapple Farm you’ll see how pineapples are grown alongside a variety of animals including goats, rabbits and even alpacas! The staff are attentive to the animals and visitors, although you’ll have to pay an additional $60 to enter the alpaca enclosure.
