The hike to Lion Rock was the best hike that we completed during a week long trip to Hong Kong. We enjoyed it even more than the hike along the Dragon's Back. The hike offered plenty of exercise, great views, and best of all, monkeys...More

If you are looking to do something outdoors-ey and something that isn't about the usual sky scrapers and party, lion rock is an easy option. Both in terms of accessibility to the place and the hike, lion rock scores big. We took a cab (uber...More
