Aiden and I spent a week in Hong Kong, and picking the best place to stay in Hong Kong made it easy for us to get around using the MTR (train/subway) and the bus as well without worrying about how late at night it was. Finding a safe area to stay makes a whole lot of a difference when on vacation with kids, and especially being the solo parent.

It was such a great place, with lots of restaurants close by, shops, street food and so much more.
