Hong Kong is an interesting city, not least because of the fact that its electric energy gives rise to the myth that there’s no life outside of the bustling grey metropolis. Actually, Hong Kong is less than 25% developed land and is 40% country parks and nature reserves, which makes it home to some incredible hiking trails and outdoor activities. The book Historical Hong Kong Hikes is lauded as being a fascinating and comprehensive guide to the trails of the city and is recommended by many hiking enthusiasts. There’s also camping, water sports, botanical gardens, biking trails, barbeque areas, beaches and much more. So any time you’re sitting around in your apartment thinking there must be better things to do on a weekend, remember this post, look at this photo, and remember that we’re in a city that’s covered in greenery, next to water, and with a thousand possibilities at our door. Pick one and go do it!
