Family-friendly things to do in Hong Kong this summer

Give your little ones an unforgettable holiday
Written by

This summer, tear your kids (and yourselves) away from TV screens and mobile devices, and get out to explore around town! Sure, theme parks are an obvious go-to, but let's face it, how many times can you go to Ocean Park or Disneyland and still be excited by cute pandas and singing princesses? Luckily, there's a bucket-load of family-friendly activities around Hong Kong – from forest adventures to cartoon-themed installations – for your little ones to run wild and burn up all their energy. Just take a look at these!

RECOMMENDED: Bask in the great outdoors and try out these hiking trails that are ideal for the whole family.

The popular Japanese cartoon character Butt Detective (yes, he has a literal butt for his face) has landed in Hong Kong and he’s here to find the missing 'golden pearl milk tea'! From June 25 to September 26, the Butt Detective exhibition invites all to investigate through seven curated spaces and rack their brains around challenging missions and fun games. From the Butt Detective Agency to the Wankoro Police Station and the Hoo Hoo Museum, scour high and low for hidden clues, jot down every detail in your very own detective notebook, and help the Butt Detective gather all the evidence to catch the culprit – don’t forget to use your special ‘magnifying glass’ too! 

At the end of your journey, stop by the pop-up store and pick up some exclusive merch like toys and key rings, storybooks, stickers and stationery, accessories, along with special cookies and cold-brew teas. Having previously attracted almost 100,000 visitors when showcasing in Taipei, The Butt Detective Exhibition is one not to be missed.
