[Update: Read here a possible itinerary that you can use for your visit to Hong Kong and Macau
I had been to Hong Kong last year when I was travelling to the USA. Last week I was again visiting Hong Kong, this time on vacation with family. We went to attractions in Hong Kong city, Disneyland and Macau.
On the first day, we went to Hong Kong Science Museum. If you a party with school going kids, I recommend you visit the museum – it is informative and enjoyable.
