Step out of Hong Kong with an excursion to Yangmeikeng Valley in Nan'ao County--about 1h 15 min away. Pack the 13th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Hong Kong Disneyland. And it doesn't end there: enjoy breathtaking views from Victoria Peak (The Peak), make a trip to Hong Kong Skyline, get engrossed in the history at Hong Kong Museum of History, and appreciate the history behind Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha).

Plan my Hong Kong trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
