Hong Kong in the Rain: Where to Eat and What to See

There’s a lot to see and do in Hong Kong (HK), but sadly most of the stuff I wanted to see I didn’t have the chance to visit. It was rainy, and unseasonably cold, for the entire four days I spent in HK, but I didn’t let that get me down!

Hong Kong Disneyland – 639 HKD ($80 USD)

We took a taxi straight from the airport to the Disney park because both establishments are on Lantau Island. Hong Kong Disneyland is the smallest of all the parks and it’s walkable within 45 minutes to an hour. Due to the rain the park was pretty empty and the rides had very short waits. I’m pretty sure I rode Space Mountain like, five times!

As most know, Disney food isn’t great and it’s expensive. You can take snacks into the park, so make sure to do so if you want to cut down on costs. Getting from Hong Kong Disneyland into the city was easy. There’s a direct train route that takes about an hour to get into the city center.
