    Easter Break for family with two young kids

    Hi,

    Have just arrived in Hong Kong 2 weeks ago. Have two yound children (nearly 2 anf 15 months). Looking for somewhere close for a getaway for Easter. Survived the 9 1/2 hr flight from Oz, but not keen on another long flight yet. Please let me know of any suggestions for places to go/see for Easter. Anywhere with easy walks, or beach/pool would be good.

    Thanks,
    Alanna

    Getting away at easter

    You just arrived 2 weeks ago and you want to escape already? Whats your hurry? Take some time, look around and you'll find tons of things to do with the little ones.

    Islands, Beaches, Small "resorts" (Gold Coast and similar) are all interesting choices.
    My choice would be to rent a holiday home on Lantau, preferably near PuiO beach and just relax.

    Charge up your octopus card and get out to the Islands like Lamma, DB etc. Get up into the New Territory's and you will also be suprised what you find. Theme park days etc. HK is not all busy streets and shops.

    Best way to plan is get a copy of Hong Kong Drivers Guide ( isbn 962-8797-11-5 less than HKD100 ). All the maps and how to get around.

    Good bus number guide on Wikipedia ! PLUS - all the companies have web sites.

    But, if you want to get away, try Shangri-la Rasa Ria in Kota Kinabalu (Malaysian Borneo) or Rasa Sentosa (Singapore). We went to both last year for long weekends with a 1 year old. Both child and adult friendly. Might also turn up more suggestions on geobaby.
