Walk to Discovery Bay North

Last Saturday I was strolling from the Discovery Bay Plaza to Discovery Bay North and I had my camera with me - so I decided to take a few pictures of my walk. Let's start with the DB International School, which is right next to the SKH Wei Lun Primary School. The DB International School… Continue reading Walk to Discovery Bay North

Hiking: Discovery Bay to Mui Wo and back

A few days ago I decided to hike on Lantau again. There was no MeetUp group meeting that I wanted to attend, so I just decided to go on my own. Given it was broad daylight, there were lots of hikers out there, I had enough water and a map plus my RoadID (a tag… Continue reading Hiking: Discovery Bay to Mui Wo and back

Hiking: Tung Chung to Mui Wo

I know it seems crazy that I'm hiking so much in this hot temperature - but I'm really enjoying it. Not just the exercise, but also meeting other fellow hikers. Two weekends ago I joined the MeetUp group for a hike from Tung Chung to Mui Wo. It was an easy hike and I could… Continue reading Hiking: Tung Chung to Mui Wo

Hiking: Sunny Bay to Disney

Same Saturday, but another hike - after my Hong Kong Island hike I decided to travel to Sunny Bay and join the Hong Kong Hiking MeetUp group there. Together, we'd explore an off-the-beaten path to Disney. Just in time to watch the fireworks. A group of eager hikers met at the station and we all… Continue reading Hiking: Sunny Bay to Disney

Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 10

Stage 10 is very similar to stage 8, as it is just a continuation of a previous stage. Apart from a few steps in the beginning it is a really flat 6.5km walk from Shui Hau to Tung Chung road, along a catchment area. However, there are a few things that set this hike apart.… Continue reading Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 10

Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 9

A few weekends ago Monica and I went hiking again - but I've only discovered my photos after sorting and blogging about Tokyo. Therefore apologies for the delay, it was back in early November when we went on Lantau Trail stage 9 which started at Shek Pik and went to Shui Hau. It is a… Continue reading Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 9

Hiking: Tung Chung to Tai O

The other weekend I joined a Meet-up group hike from Tung Chung to Tai O. We were a group of 30 people, a mix of Chinese and Westerners all from different backgrounds. I've met students looking for jobs, people that have lived and worked in Hong Kong over 20 years, newly arrived people and others… Continue reading Hiking: Tung Chung to Tai O
