For families with older children, the Dragon’s Back is a great hiking day out.

Take the youngsters to see the world-renowned Ocean Park aquatic theme park, which houses rides, aquaria and an aquatic theatre.

Take a trip to the scenic and quiet Lantau Island and see the famous Big Buddha.

Around five-miles outside the centre lies the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. The climb to the top is steep, but the view makes it worthwhile.
