I would say 10 days gives you plenty of time to shop & see the main sites. There are lots of indoor malls where it's easy to push a stroller. Streets are crowded, but there's so much cart pushing on the sidewalks & streets that no one minds a stroller. You can just use it to part the crowd as you go. It's quite an accomodating city, and people tote their kids everywhere, so you shouldn't have a problem.

Let me know if you need any other help.

hi - i guess i didn't read your question carefully enough.

I think 10 days is fine. Not too long. Not too short.

I would say 10 days is long time to spend in Hong Kong. Having just come back (yesterday) from my first visit. It might be an idea to head out to Macau or one one of the other islands for a few days to get away from the crowds and have a rest.

I'd also make sure that the hotel you have booked has enough room for all the kids stuff, HK hotel rooms are tiny, unless you are paying big money in a top end hotel.

Wonderfull city though and shopping is fantastic!

Another thing to note is that there arent many palces to just stop and eat or drink right on the shopping streets. Most places will involve a lift or stairs/esculator up to a higher floor where the cafe will be situated. No big deal when you're on your own but might be a burden with a push chair.

Any other questions please ask.
