Hiking: Dragon’s Back (revisited)

Yes, this is the most famous hike of Hong Kong: the Dragon's Back. The “Dragon” got its name from the trail’s ups and downs between Shek O Peak and Wan Cham Shan. I'm sure everyone has heard of it or done it before... and I have done it numerous times, in summer and winter, in… Continue reading Hiking: Dragon’s Back (revisited)

Interview with Space between Ideas

I stumbled upon Anneka's blog Space between Ideas by pure luck - I was searching for easy hikes in Hong Kong and found her blog post that features a number of different easy hikes (including my all-time favourite Discovery Bay to Mui Wo). There is one from Sai Kung to Sai Wan that was new to me,… Continue reading Interview with Space between Ideas

Interview with HKFiles

It's Monday morning... and time for another blog interview. Today, let's meet with Julienne aka Yeni R from HKFiles, who writes about life in Hong Kong. Her blog is home to a mix of food reviews, hikes and attractions - so it's quite similar to my blog, but what I do love about her blog… Continue reading Interview with HKFiles

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: How to clean and store a water pack

One thing that is really essential for me, when I go hiking, is my water pack. I only hiked without one right at the beginning, and I noticed it was too much of a hassle to take a bottle out of my bag, drink a sip, close the bottle again and then store the bottle… Continue reading Hiking: How to clean and store a water pack

Hiking: North Point to Hopewell Centre

Another weekend gone, another hike under my belt. I really enjoy trying out different routes, so this weekend was no different. We met up at North Point MTR station and walked for about 3 hours to reach Hopewell Centre. It was a slightly different route than usual, as we didn't start from Quarry Bay. From… Continue reading Hiking: North Point to Hopewell Centre

Hiking: Wan Chai loop

A few Saturdays ago I joined the Hong Kong Hiking MeetUp group for a hike around Mount Cameron - it was an interesting hike, as I've never done the full loop before and it also included some bushwhacking. It was totally worth it. We started at the Hopewell Centre and walked up the steep slope… Continue reading Hiking: Wan Chai loop

Hiking from Tung Chung to Discovery Bay

I've already posted about a number of hikes in and out of Discovery Bay. By far the most popular one is the Mui Wo route, as it is easy to walk and only takes 1.5-2 hours. I've written about it in 2011, when I first came to Hong Kong, then in 2012 when I hiked… Continue reading Hiking from Tung Chung to Discovery Bay
