So at the top of my children's to-do lists were seeing giant pandas, sailing on a junk, and shopping. High on mine was tea at The Peninsula.
I'd been to Hong Kong a few times before this trip but had never fit this in. I've really enjoyed tea at The Empress in Victoria, BC, so wanted to give it a try.
This was in October, so the tea was "Peninsula in Pink" themed, with special pink pastries and treats. Each pink tea sold generated a HK$20 donation to The Peninsula Hong Kong's chosen charity THE REGISTRY (Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry).
Two of my children opted for milkshakes, and both the vanilla and chocolate varieties were declared The. Best. Milkshakes. Ever. I tried a sip of the vanilla and wholeheartedly agree.
Tea is served in the lobby and reservations are not accepted.
