Shabbos with 2 toddlers would be more relaxed with easy access to meals in HKG or CNX?

X-mas
In the summer HKG seemed like the better option for toddlers for Shabbos as it was really very quiet in the summer and cnx was a total zoo on Shabbos(500+ people in 2 shifts and no room to move around), but I can not comment on the winter -find out if it is busy season then in HKG-If not it is def. the better option w/ toodlers IMO

its busy season for touring but perhaps hkg would be quiter as it is a bit of an off weekend for business. Anyone have any experience?

Mr. AJK, this TR is amazing and super helpful!

I am looking now to book a Trip for December/January time with a few day stopover in HKK.

Is there anything that you can remember that you would do differently?

Again, amazing TR!

Thanks! If i could do it all over, I'd spend a day or two longer in USM, so I could explore some of the surrounding islands, which are supposed to be beautiful, e.g. Koh Tao, Koh Lanta, Koh Muk.

Ok great!

Also, you posted "JFK-YVR-HKG = it's complicated"

What was complicated about it? Looking for NYC-HKG now.

Also think I may want to avoid BKK, seems like the city isnt one of the cleanest.
