Looking to make some lasting memories with the kids before they outgrow family holidays? Hong Kong is a reasonably short international flight from Australia and offers loads of great opportunities perfect for a week-long family holiday with teenagers.

Day 1

It’s your first day in a new and exciting city, so the best way to get acquainted with your surrounds without the day ending in arguments and tears is to book your family onto a tour. The TramOramic Tour offers insight into Hong Kong’s history and daily life aboard an elegant 1920s’ style tram (the staff are even in historical costumes) with an open-air top deck. There’s free Wi-Fi, on board videos and a picture gallery that compares past and present to learn more. As a bonus, included in the ticket is a two-day pass for unlimited free transport on the Tramways’ regular service and thematic journey maps for self-guided tours.
