Daraius and I took my parents on an around-the-world trip to the Maldives, India, and Hong Kong. My step-dad, Mark, had never been outside the US, and my mom had only been to India.
We had a free stopover in Hong Kong with our Cathay Pacific flight back to the US.
Daraius and I thought it would be a great experience for them to see Hong Kong because it’s such a dynamic city! It’s also very different from both India and the Maldives.
My Parents Were Looking Forward to Exploring Hong Kong!
We only spent a few days in Hong Kong during this trip. So if you want more details about sights, shopping, and restaurants, check out the trip report from our longer stay in Hong Kong in December 2013.
