While humidity levels are low and the skies are clear, Hong Kong presents the ideal climate for outdoor exploration with exciting pursuits for every type of adventure seeker. From now until the end of April is the perfect time to get active and Destination Asia Hong Kong are the experts on hand to deliver a number of guided hikes including Dragon’s Back, Lamma Island and Lion Rock. We know Hong Kong’s national sport might be regarded as shopping, but as locals we can tell you that Hong Kongers also like to head for the hills and get a break from this most densely populated of cities.
The famous Dragon’s Back hike runs along the ridge of Shek O Peak and provides guests with beautiful coastal scenery over Shek O, Tai Long Wan, Stanley, Tai Tam, and the South China Sea. Located on Hong Kong Island it is one of the most popular hikes for tourists and locals alike.
To truly appreciate the density of Hong Kong whilst still working up a sweat, Lion Rock is the perfect outdoor blend. Providing sweeping views over Kowloon and the New Territories, this is a truly rewarding urban walk.
