Hong Kong packs a surprising amount of kid appeal. Here are just a few things to do if you have little ones in tow:

Take a steep ride up to Victoria Peak on the Peak Tram. At the summit, you’ll find family-friendly walks, a Madame Tussaud’s, and stellar views.

Ride the iconic Star Ferry across the harbor, and watch the skyline do its luminous dance for the Symphony of Lights, every evening at 8 p.m.

It’s not the Plaza, but your your little Eloise may very well enjoy high tea at the Mandarin Oriental or the Peninsula.

Beat the heat with a visit to one of the beaches on the south side of Hong Kong Island. Most have changing facilities, equipment rental, lifeguards and (gulp) shark nets. I’m partial to Shek-O and Big Wave Bay.

Take your bird-loving boys and girls to the aviary at Hong Kong Park, home to some 100 species of feathered friends.

The Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Space Museum are essentially built for kids, with plenty of interactive, hands-on exhibitions.

For rollercoasters and dolphin shows, there's always Ocean Park.
