Caches can be found at Victoria Peak, the top HK tourist attraction
If you're traveling to Hong Kong with kids, finding fun things for them to do would be part of the challenge especially
when it comes to a strange and foreign land. So here is something to help you: geocaching. If your kids like
treasure hunts, they might just like it. Below is a 75-second introduction video.
Since it may be a little hard to start out cold in unfamiliar territories, start playing it with your family
right where you live before you travel to Hong Kong. There're 'caches' just about everywhere in the world. And it's easy to get started if you
have a smart phone - most of which are equipped with a GPS. Below are the simple steps.
- Sign up for a free account at
the Geocache website (no we don't get a commission!)
- Download the free Geocaching app for your phone.
- Locate a cache near you - or anywhere for that matter.
- Go find it!

Maybe some day you'll start hiding your own caches. I had fun hiding some for my family to find
their Christmas gifts, complete with a psuedo-geocache clickable map. And part of the fun is creating the whole
thing and disguising the caches.
