Hong Kong: From a new perspective

Visiting Hong Kong has always been about the city, but never have I thought that I could do something within nature without spending too much.

For the first day, I still decided to see the usual things in the city — skyscrapers, Asian food, and a good night out.

But onย the following day, I decided to go on a different route, where the mountains and the ocean meet. I went on a hike on “Dragon’s Back” to “Big Wave Bay.” This hike is very easy and can be done by almost anyone in 2-3 hours, and the view from the top is so rewarding.

HOW TO GET THERE:

  • Take the MTR to Shau Kei Wan Station.
  • From there, took exit A3 to the bus station and transfer to Bus 9, Shek O to To Tei Wan stop which is right in front of the start of the trail
  • Note: There will probably a lot of people doing this hike as it is one of the most convenient, so you’ll see many people taking the same transo. Just tag along!
