    I took my 3 year old daughter to Shenzhen and didn't enjoy that day at all, we actually left earlier than planned.

    My daughter is a blondie and they would not leave her alone, she was crying with all the attention she was getting and one person even tried to pull her out of my arms to have a cuddle.

    IMHO would not go with children to Shenzhen

    Re: Hong Kong - How long to spend there with a family?

    Hi All,

    Just wondering is it a bad idea to bring my 2 year old daughter with myself and wife to HKG? Probably spend 7 days there. Flights will be on VS UC SYD-HKG-SYD.

    Has anyone travelled with a 2 year old before

    Thanks,
    K.

    Re: Hong Kong - How long to spend there with a family?

    Thanks. Worried about the 9 hour flight Need to load up with the toys and gadgets and food! Hopefully an iPAD will do the trick! How about a small stoller to bring along? Is it too difficult for HK? I have a feeling she won't want to walk too much.... Looking to stay at the Conrad HK, never stayed on the island side before .... Only stayed at TST previously without children!

    Re: Hong Kong - How long to spend there with a family?

    We went with our kids (5 & 8 at the time) in 2009... they loved it. Amaroo already listed off the places we went, but I would recommend staying at the better of the two Disneyland hotels and upgrade to the executive floor - well worth it... kids will love the character breakfast as well.

    Have tried all routings but it costs too much to get up there. I have now changed the itinerary:
    BNE-SYD-HKG-SIN-DPS-SIN-MEL-BNE (17 nights)
    We will definitely get to Shanghai next time.

    I'd take the stroller for a few reasons:-

    If you go shopping the centres are HUGE.....therefore, you can spend quite a bit of time there....including eating at the many great restaurants that inhabit shopping malls
    Many places are linked with overhead bridges....easy to walk between places.
    Easy spot for the little one to catch a nap and for you to easily carry on doing other things

    Depending on the time of the year you intend going, definitely stay somewhere with a good pool.

    Re: Hong Kong - How long to spend there with a family?

    I think your 11 and 8 year olds might be a little bored with Hong Kong Disneyland so I wouldn't book two whole days there. I think one day is plenty. We took Lisa when she was three and she fell asleep so we left mid-afternoon. As others have said, compared with Anaheim it's Disneyland-lite. On the plus side I find it funny watching the local adults queueing up to ride on Dumbo...

    With our 3 kids, we will need to get a 2 bedroom apartment. Any thoughts / suggestions appreciated on this too.
