Great outdoor places around Hong Kong
‘Hong Kong is a city of towers’, starts this piece on Travel Pulse, but there’s also outdoors to explore – and it’s wonderful. Hong Kong is not just ‘an urbanite’s paradise’. Here are two, big, not-to-be-missed experiences:
Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark
From ‘the seafood haven town of Sai Kung’, says Travel Pulse, you can head into the country park and, within that, the geopark. This harbours the region’s most ‘fascinating geologic wonders’.
Check out the High Island Reservoir East Dam, the Ninepin Islands, and Po Pin Chau. And don’t miss Sharp Island, where you can hike, swim, snorkel, kayak.
‘If Sai Kung is Hong Kong’s playground,’ says the piece, ‘Lantau – the biggest island – is its great outdoors.’ Disneyland is here, but also dream beaches – Cheung Sha and Pui O – for summer visits.
The Big Buddha presides over the Po Lin Monastery, and a cable car shuttles to Ngong Ping. Plus, don’t miss the gorgeous, traditional, fishing village of Tai O – a last of its kind – nor an early morning trek to Lantau Peak to see the sun rise…
