Exhibition: Wearable blessings at the HK Heritage Museum in Sha Tin

I am always surprised that there are some really good current exhibitions that are often overlooked. One of them is the 'Wearable Blessings' exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The museum is in Sha Tin, so it is a little journey away from the Island but it is so worth it! I have been… Continue reading Exhibition: Wearable blessings at the HK Heritage Museum in Sha Tin

Tai Po Waterfront Park

Our main reason to visit Tai Po was to explore the Tai Po Waterfront Park. I became curious about this park after seeing images of the spiral lookout point and reading many nice things about this park on several blogs, including Rachel's blog Little Koo. We walked to the park from the railway museum via… Continue reading Tai Po Waterfront Park

Man Mo Temple in Tai Po

After the visit to the Hong Kong Railway Museum I walked over to the waterfront park - and on the way to the park, I passed an interesting temple, a Man Mo Temple.

Hong Kong Wetland Park

The Hong Kong Wetland Park was always on my to do list, after reading about it on Webs of Significance, Little Koo and Munky's Travel. Finally, this Easter, I was able to tick it off my list!

Hiking: Lion Rock

I thought I'd knew most hiking routes by now - but because I've still not finished the MacLehose trail there are still some parts of Kowloon that I need to explore. One of these parts is Lion Rock, which is in a country park that has the same name: Lion Rock Country Park. The hike… Continue reading Hiking: Lion Rock
