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. Don't confuse this with the Man Mo temple in Hong Kong (the famous one on Hollywood Road). The one on Tai Po… Continue reading Man Mo Temple in Tai Po

Hong Kong Railway Museum in Tai Po

Tai Po is an area that I hadn't explored much. It was long overdue! After reading this book about Hong Kong for kids, I decided to travel to Tai Po. My first stop was at the Hong Kong Railway Museum, which is located at the former KCR Tai Po Market Station. It opened in 1985… Continue reading Hong Kong Railway Museum in Tai Po

Book tip: Hong Kong for Kids

I discovered great titles at the Hong Kong Public Library - one of them is "Hong Kong for Kids - A Parent's Guide". It is by Cindy Miller Stephens and she wrote it after she noticed that there was no such guide around, and she kept asking friends and mums about some recommendations on what to… Continue reading Book tip: Hong Kong for Kids

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 Fabergé 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
