Just when I think I’ve visited everything that there is to visit in Hong Kong I accidentally come across a new spot that reminds me how wonderful Hong Kong is.

Tung Lung Chau Island Hong Kong (21)

Hong Kong is my second home. I’ve live in Hong Kong for many years and I’ve had plenty of time to explore most of the places in Hong Kong. Even though Hong Kong is one of the most diverse exciting cities in the world, I did a pretty good job of covering almost everything, and […]

Po Toi Island -  Hong Kong (40)

After 5 years in Hong Kong I thought that I pretty much covered it all. Did most of the hiking trails, been to most of the local islands, did countless boat trips in all directions. What else could there possibly be that would surprise me? But, as it usually is with Hong Kong, there are […]

Northern Peng Chau Island Hong Kong-029

Long ago I visited Peng Chau for the first time, one of Hong Kong’s small island with a laid back fishermen village feel to it. Though it’s a really small island, that fist time, I only explored the southern part of the island, hiking up to the mountain top to get some wonderful views …

In my ~2+ years in Hong Kong I’ve done a fair number of hikes, many of them far exceeding my prior expectations of Hong Kong with some really breathtaking scenery.

On a gloomy hot Sunday in Hong Kong we set off to do the Wilson Trail stage 4 backwards from the Sha Tin Pass all the way east down hill towards Sai Kung. This trail shares a section with MacLehose trail stage 5 – which I did last year, and in that combined section there’s […]

Peng Chau 056.JPG

One of the greatest things about Hong Kong is that it has the outlying islands. From the gorgeous and scenic Lantau island (with Ngong Ping 360, Tai O Village etc.), through Lamma Island, to Cheung Chau you can spend days exploring hiking trails, celebrating local festivals and religions and enjoying terrific local seafood and laid […]
