With Easter almost here and a road map of easing social-distancing rules in place, the spring and summer months in Hong Kong are gearing up to include a little more fun, playtime and outdoor activities. Read on for six family-friendly ways to make the most of both the upcoming Easter holidays, and the warmer months ahead.

1. Hunt for Easter eggs at The Upper House

The Upper House has teamed up with Bimbo Concept to offer multiple Easter Egg Hunt Workshop sessions on The Lawn from 17 to 18 April. Amongst the lush surrounds, little ones can get involved in a range of fun games including Easter Egg Hunt, Carrot Toss and Easter Egg Decorating, and will leave with a goodie bag. While you’re there, check out The Upper House Marketplace, hosted in the Sky Lounge between 15 and 18 April. You’ll find The Upper house amenities, including plush bathrobes and Salisterra specialty products, including house-made madeleines and curated wines. And in a perfect spring touch, you can even create a bespoke hamper with a chic and sustainable wooden box.

3. Feast with your little ones at The Continental

The long weekend is the perfect time to settle into the expansive tropical garden terrace of The Continental and enjoy a limited edition three-course menu featuring Double Baked Cheddar Souffle with Truffle Cheese Glaze, Coronation Chicken Flatbread with Charred Onions and Curry Mayonnaise, and French Toast with Orange Marmalade. Make sure to make it a family affair — kids under 12 years old can enjoy a complimentary dish from the Children's Menu.



4. Go for a pony ride at Tai Tong Organic EcoPark

Tai Tong Organic EcoPark is a sprawling million square feet of land that aims to promote environmental awareness and enhance physical and mental well-being. This is achieved through an array of animal friends and activities little ones will adore — from pony rides and family-sized bicycles to an organic farm and strawberry field, to a lotus fish pond and adventure play area. There’s a barbecue area too. You can also opt for an activity package that includes park entry and four activity ticket vouchers, where you can pick from activities like the above or a bouncy castle, DIY workshop, fish or horse feeding, and more.

5. Test out your bouldering skills at Hong Kong Climbing Park

There are a bounty of great options when it comes to getting your indoor climb on in Hong Kong. One of our favourites? New addition Hong Kong Climbing Park. One of the city’s largest, it offers lead climbing and bouldering zones for climbers of all levels, as well as a training area. You can pick from a range of training courses, or test out your strength in the Ninja Warrior zone, where you can challenge yourself through ten stages of an obstacle course.

6. Awaken your active side with Hong Kong Wake School

Wakeboarding and wakesurfing are ultra-popular pastimes in Hong Kong, and for good reason. They’re great for getting a hit of sun, salt and the endorphins that come from getting active and trying something new. There are plenty of options to choose from in the city, including one of our faves — HK Wake School, which offers both wakesurfing and wakeboarding and has boats available in Repulse Bay and at the Science Park. It’s suitable for all ages, so make it a family affair and bring along your kids and teens too.
