Theme parks in Hong Kong are some of the finest and biggest playgrounds in Asia. There are 2 main parks that attract the most attention: Mickey Mouse and his friends over at Disneyland Hong Kong and Ocean Park on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island. You’ll also find a few options across the water in Macau, most of which are surrounded by luxury hotels and grand casinos. 

    Often cited as the ultimate family activity, Hong Kong’s most popular amusement parks will definitely add some exciting days to your trip. Plan your trip around special occasions (Christmas, Halloween, or New Year) and you’ll be able to enjoy special seasonal rides and activities, which makes for even more fun in Hong Kong. 


    At Hong Kong Disneyland, you’ll find your favorite characters parading the streets of the expansive theme park, as well as a wide range of fun rides for visitors of all ages. In Tomorrowland, high octane rollercoasters such as Space Mountain and Orbitron give you a healthy dose of an adrenaline rush, while stage shows like Festival of the Lion King and Mickey and the Wondrous Book will entertain younger crowds with catchy music and dance numbers.
