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! It was a very hot Sunday when we went and visited the Wetland Park and of course, it… Continue reading Hong Kong Wetland Park

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

Hiking: Wilson Trail 4 and MacLehose Trail 4

Ok, let me admit it. I have been lazy. I have not been hiking much. But I've got a good excuse: I've been travelling to Singapore, Khao Lak and Jodhpur. I had visitors in town and most annoyingly, the weather was pretty bad during the last weeks. But enough excuses, I have managed to squeeze… Continue reading Hiking: Wilson Trail 4 and MacLehose Trail 4

Eddie Lau and Bruce Lee at the Sha Tin Heritage Museum

It is a little further away from Central, but it is definitely worth the trip. What am I talking about? The Sha Tin Heritage Museum. I have been a few times now and I always enjoyed it. For instance, the Faberg√© exhibition last year was real eye-candy. In 2013 the highlight was the Eddie Lau… Continue reading Eddie Lau and Bruce Lee at the Sha Tin Heritage Museum

Treasure Hunt to Sai Kung

On one of my recent hikes I had heard about a treasure hunt in Hong Kong. I was intrigued by it, I love puzzles and challenges and if I could combine this with a way to sightsee in Hong Kong and learn something new, I would be totally happy to take part. So I did… Continue reading Treasure Hunt to Sai Kung

Hiking: Buffalo Hill

Yesterday I joined the Hong Kong Hiking MeetUp group for a hike in the New Territories, between Sai Kung and Sha Tin. We hiked about 10km and it took us 5 hours, as we had to climb the 600m high Buffalo Hill and descended on undefined path with lots of rubble, stones and overgrown grass.… Continue reading Hiking: Buffalo Hill

Hiking: MacLehose Trail Stage 3

Slowly but surely we are continuing in our quest to hike the MacLehose Trail. A few days ago, Monica and I met up again to travel all the way to Sai Kung (via Diamond Hill MTR station) and took a taxi to take us to the starting point on Pak Tam Road. It was good… Continue reading Hiking: MacLehose Trail Stage 3

Hiking: MacLehose Trail Stage 2

Together with my friend Monica, we decided to continue hiking the MacLehose Trail. It's a fantastic trail, with amazing scenery and landscape. But the only challenge is that the stages 1-4 are so far away from where we live... it would almost be quicker to fly to Bangkok then to take the ferry, MTR, bus… Continue reading Hiking: MacLehose Trail Stage 2

Hiking: Arriving at Starling Inlet (Part 3)

This is the third and final part of our hike, which started on Chi Sum Road (here's the first part and the second part). After 12km hiking we reached the Tai Wan Bay. This is at the Starling Inlet, which is a bay in the North-East of Hong Kong. The whole body of water falls… Continue reading Hiking: Arriving at Starling Inlet (Part 3)
