Kidspert tips!

Editor, Sassy Mama,


What will you be doing with your kids this summer?
We live on Lantau, so this means lots of beach time! Be it Silvermine Bay, Lower Cheung Sha or hitting up the playground in Discovery Bay, my little boy loves the sand between his toes! Our default (non-beach) options are Ocean Park and the Science Museum. Both are sure-fire winners as they include a varied range of hands-on activities that are great for toddlers and older kids alike.

What's your favourite place to shop for your kids?
Like many of my fellow mums, I find shopping with a little one in tow can feel like a bit of a chore, so I do a lot of it online. Luckily, a load of great new online stores recently launched here in Hong Kong. For clothes, Cutie Cutie Baby ( have a good range of toys, while for the full kiddy kit, I love Baby Central's new sister site Little Monkey Toys (

What's your favourite hidden spot to take your kids to?
There is a great walk toward Clearwater Bay Equestrian Centre that is also very stroller-friendly. Once you arrive at the stables, there is a gate you can enter and walk to the public area in the back. The kids love watching the horses there for a while before heading for a picnic in the open kite flying area (complete with a view).

What will you be doing with your kids this summer?
We recently moved from the city to Clearwater Bay so this summer is all about getting out of the house and exploring the countryside, beaches and taking new adventures around the area.

Where's your favourite hidden spot to take your kids to?
There aren't many hidden spots left in Hong Kong but my go-to Friday afternoon activity is Mount Austin Park on the peak. On the weekends, when there are blue skies, we like to pack up and head to Sai Wan Beach near Tai Long Wan. You almost forget you're in Hong Kong and there are pram-friendly paths if the little ones get tired.

Any kid-friendly restaurants you would recommend?
We often take the kids to Posto Pubblico out on Elgin Street in Soho. The staff there are amazingly friendly and helpful, and my kids love all the special attention they get. Also, they're always happy to make something off the menu to fit tiny appetites and picky eaters.
