Victoria Peak, otherwise known as The Peak, has always been a must-visit Hong Kong destination for its iconic views and historic funicular railway. But after a major upgrade that was completed last year, The Peak Tram now offers an even more exciting and efficient experience with new, larger-capacity green-coloured tramcars and an array of entertainment zones showcasing the area’s intriguing history and wildlife.
Once at The Peak, be sure to check out Monopoly Dreams, the first Monopoly-themed attraction in the world that features an array of AR and other interactive experiences. Then, make your way to Sky Terrace 428, which at 428m above sea level is the highest viewing platform in Hong Kong. From here the whole family will be wowed by 360-degree panoramic views across the city and harbour, which are impressive morning, noon or night!
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, it’s just a quick tram ride back to Central for a special Easter-themed dining experience. Fans of modern Indian cuisine won’t want to miss Chaiwala’s “SomeBunny Feed Me!” brunch feast (HK$388pp, HK$398pp champagne free-flow, HK$198pp classic free-flow) complete with a trio of chaat for sharing, choice of vegetarian or mutton biryani, a tandoor tower and dosas for sharing, and choice of six curries. A children’s menu is also available for HK$50.
For a taste of innovative Japanese and Peruvian fusion food, head a few blocks north to TokyoLima and its adventurous take on “SomeBunny Feed Me!” (HK$398pp, HK$398pp champagne free-flow, HK$198pp classic free-flow). Designed for sharing, the brunch feast begins with a selection of appetisers including causa and ceviche before moving on to the Weeknd Salad, Edamame Hummus and Pop Ki-Mo-Chi, and finishing with a choice of mains such as chicken katsu with aji panca rice or pan-fried mackerel with potato puree and Nikkei escabeche. Both brunch menus are available 7–10 April 2023 and include an extravagant all-you-can-enjoy chocolate buffet – so be sure to leave some room!
Close to Central but a world unto its own, Sheung Wan is often referred to as the perfect blend of old and new Hong Kong. Its narrow, winding streets are full of hidden gems and family-friendly activities, with one of our favourites being The Upper Loft indoor golf club. Golf enthusiasts and beginners alike can try their luck at more than 200 international courses through several advanced simulators, or practise their distance shots at the driving bays.
If you’re looking for something to do in the great outdoors, Mount Davis offers an easy and interesting hike dotted with relics of the former headquarters of the Western Fire Command during World War II. The 2.5km (one-way) course follows a paved road on the westernmost hill on Hong Kong Island. Finally, and especially for the little ones, there’s the Children’s Playground at the Central and Western District Promenade. The ship-themed play facility sits right on the harbourfront with views across to Kowloon and offers plenty of space to run, climb, slide and explore.
Sheung Wan is also a hotbed of creative cuisine, with three unique Pirata Group outlets. TMK Punk & Rolls is a lively and fun temakeria that swears by the motto of living life the fun way. This Easter, TMK celebrates with an Easter Free-flow Maki Brunch (HK$248pp, HK$150pp extra for 90 min free-flow beer and sake) with four sharing starters, two temakis and a variety of free-flow maki, followed by signature dishes like kimchi pancake and tuna hotdog, and a choice of dessert between Easter monaka or caramel fried banana.
Modern Japanese eatery Honjo, meanwhile, is welcoming guests to a seafood-loaded “SomeBunny Feed Me!” brunch feast (HK$498pp, HK$398pp champagne free-flow, HK$198pp classic free-flow, kids under 12 eat free) complete with an all-you-can-eat chocolate dessert station.

Roasted and grilled meat specialist Meats has also put its own spin on “SomeBunny Feed Me!” (HK$498pp, HK$398pp premium free-flow, HK$220 classic free-flow, kids under 12 eat free) with a range of tempting starters followed by a choice of burger, rotisserie chicken, crispy salmon bowl, USDA prime ribeye, Argentinian grass-fed black Angus Wellington and much more.

Just a short ride on the Star Ferry or a quick trip on the MTR from Hong Kong Island and you’ll find yourself in the always-buzzing Tsim Sha Tsui commercial and entertainment district or the up-and-coming West Kowloon cultural district. Must-visits on this side of Victoria Harbour include the new M+ Museum showcasing some of the world’s foremost collections of 20th- and 21st-century visual culture. The Herzog & de Meuron-designed building and surrounding outdoor spaces are worth a visit even on their own.
After admiring the architecture, budding builders should definitely check out Legoland Discovery Centre. The ultimate Lego indoor playground is designed for children ages 3-10 and features workshops, play areas and even Hong Kong’s top attractions built out of bricks. Finally, burn off any residual energy at Kids Kids Car indoor electric-vehicle driving playground. The 20,000 sq ft space has three different themed zones where kids can zoom around and even experience various occupations.
Cap off your Kowloon adventures at neighbourhood Italian spot Pici, which from 5–10 April 2023 is offering two limited-time additions to everyone’s favourite pasta bar brunch. The new specials are available all day and include the lavish Truffle Carbonara (HK$190), a tagliatelle with black truffle, guanciale, pecorino and Japanese egg yolk; and the Coppa Malu (HK$140) a velvety mousse dessert for two made with 70% chocolate, whipped cream and almond meringue. The famous, much-loved Italian treats are available all around the city, with more branches in Lai Chi Kok, Sha Tin in the New Territories but also buzzing Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, and Central amongst other prime locations.

Tired of the hustle and bustle of the city? Let’s head over to Stanley for a lovely seaside stroll with your little ones. The Stanley Bay promenade is a picturesque boardwalk overlooking all the small boats parked at the bay – this is a scene you can’t find in other parts of Hong Kong. With a backdrop of colonial heritage buildings, lots of locals come here to walk their pets and enjoy a peaceful afternoon.
Looking for a seaside cafe to enjoy the view? Pirata has got you covered!
