“Maclehose Trail is very very long, divided into 7 parts, you can pick 1-2, go hiking there. Each part you will see the different natural part or historic part of Hongkong, I really love these trails.”

“Also called the "Monkey Mountains" because of the legions of monkeys scattered around. It has a lot of hiking/jogging trails that is suitable to all levels of hikers. It is a very nice and easy walk around the water reservoirs. You can also sit around and enjoy the sun/view. There are a few fishing enthusiasts who enjoy hanging around in the area. Worth visiting.”

“Some of Hong Kong's most dramatic landscapes lie within Ma On Shan Country Park, established in 1979 on the Sai Kung Peninsula. This park links with Sai Kung Country Park and Lion Rock Country Park. Besides barbecues, the park features the popular - but difficult - Ma On Shan Country Side trail stretching over three kilometres.”

“Che Kung Miu Temple is a Grade II historic building located in Tai Wai, Shatin. Originally built in the 17th century, it is not open to the public anymore but the new temple was built in 1994 and is more than eight times the size of the original temple and is in the Japanese style and the authenticity of the original temple has been lost. However it is still one of the most visited temples in Hong Kong. ”

“The thickly forested 460-hectare Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve is Hong Kong’s most extensive woodlands. It is home to many species of butterflies, amphibians, birds, dragonflies and trees, and is a superb place in which to enjoy a quiet walk. The reserve is crisscrossed with four main tracks ranging in length from 3km to 10km, plus a short nature trail of less than 1km. If possible, avoid the reserve on Sunday and public holidays, when the crowds descend upon the place. The reserve is well served by buses. Bus 70 passes through Jordan and Mong Kok on its way here. Bus 72 can be used to get here from the nearby Sha Tin and Tai Po Market East Rail stations.”
