    The Kwun Tong Promenade is an approximately 1 km long waterfront boardwalk that runs alongside the Kwun Tong Bypass road, facing typhoon shelter, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. The waterfront is mostly wooden deck and runs in a straight line. There an adjacent row of grass and medium height trees offering a bit of shade. In various areas, there are sculpture and mechanical cranes and waste paper bundles.

    On clear days, visitors are afforded very nice views of the sea and skylines in the distance, the promenade is enjoyable during the day when sky visibility is good but perhaps even better at sunset and after dark when the skylines in the distance can be enjoyed against the changing colours of evening and dark of night.

    Quickest MTR access to the Kwun Tong Promenade is by way of the Ngau Tau Kok Station which is around a 500 metre walk from the promenade.

    With the recent opening of the new promenade from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park to the Western Wholesale Food Market the promenade is 4.6km long to Golden Bauhinia Square. The promenade goes past Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park, Tamar Park, the outlying ferry piers, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and the Central Harbourfront Event Space.
    Along the way you will pass, families walking, fishermen, people jogging and others enjoying the parks and watching the activity on the harbour. It is great for a jog and is easily accessible from all the hotels stretching from Wanchai to Kennedy Town.

    …it’ll be worth them spending a few minutes from Central or Admiralty to seek out these two stalwarts of the HK banking world: they’ve seen so much across the years, much of which is clear from their markings and scars. Tiny bits of history on the island is sadly all that remains due to the inexorable construction and rejuvenation so it’s nice to see these two original features out in front of one of HK’s most striking buildings.

    While staying in Kowloon we decided to have a look around this area but very little to see at the moment as it all seems to be a construction site and very limited access.
    We did see a couple of arty statues so reckon these must be part of it.
    Nice to be down by the harbour anyhow.

    We discovered this unique place while running on the promenade starting at Dr. Sun Yat Sen park. Discovered that this set of two piers was once leased to the US navy during the Vietnam conflict. This was one of the R&R spots for American troops. Then it laid closed off for a long time. Returned to use for a short period then abandoned but a few years ago was opened to the public and some containers left there now covered with grafitti. The wharf is frequented by strollers, runners, parents with. children but mostly photographers from amatuer to professional. Many selfie sticks too. It attracts people from all over the world. I enjoyed modeling cheongsams and qipaos against the gritty nautical background. The slightly more western pier has even more cargo and a few tugboats for suggestive photographs. These piers are located a few minutes walk from Whittey St. Depot of the Ding Ding between. Sheung Wan and Kennedy Town. Hong Kong University MTR stop is a ten minute walk away. Rest rooms are at the gate of the pier. If closed there are other more modern toilets about 200 meters east on the waterfront promenade with drinking water fountains. Behind the tram depot is a small mall, Pacific Place with a food court. There is a large Mc Donalds and Mc Cafe two blocks uphill from the mall.

    The Ching Lin Terrace refers to a hillside area within the Kennedy Town section of the Western District found approximately halfway up the hill between the Kennedy Town and HKU MTR Stations. Not a touristy location in the traditional sense. Instead you will find quiet residential environs as well as an interesting Lo Pan Temple, which is potentially worth making time to see if you enjoy history and seeing Chinese temples.

    This is the only temple in Hong Kong dedicated to Lo Pan, the Chinese figure of builders and carpenters. It is a two-hall structure built in 1884 in the traditional manner of using the topography of the hillside as its foundation. There is a peculiar exterior gable, that is unique for Hong Kong's temples. The facade and interior of the temple include expected murals and interesting plaster reliefs and you will find typical shrines with deity figures within.

    Aberdeen Street is a northeast - southwest street that basically serves as the boundary between Sheung Wan and Central Districts in Hong Kong. It is a rather steep 250+ metre street between Wellington (northeast) and Caine Road (southwest) that passes by the LFK hotel, Pak Tsz Lane Park and PMQ and a handful of retail shops, cafes, restaurants and coffee shops. Quite a few side streets intersect with Aberdeen, providing access to quite a few other food, drink and shopping options in the area.

    A hidden coastal walking trail between Ocean Park and Deep Water Bay Beach, this is a gentle 25 - 30 minute walk that follows the water's edge and hugs the coast. It's a very scenic way to see a completely different side of Hong Kong. The approach into Deep Water Bay is especially pretty, with outlying islands and luxury boats anchored offshore.
    It’s an easy walk. The path is flat, paved concrete the whole way so, aside from the first set of stairs, it’s very manageable for pushchairs. It’s flat enough for small children to take a scooter along. However there’s not much shade so you’ll need water, a hat and sunscreen.
    The path starts just past the Hong Kong Country Club. From the city centre, the easiest way to get there is to catch the MTR from Admiralty to Ocean Park. It’s 2 stops and a 4 minute trip. Once you leave the station, walk towards the Ocean Park Marriott. Keep to the left of the hotel and head up to the main road and turn right. After a minute or two, you will see the Hong Kong Country Club driveway and almost immediately past it, there’s a path and stairs on your right, heading down towards the water. Although there is a small sign, it’s easy to miss because it’s been placed down low and is not immediately obvious.
    From here on in, the walk is very straightforward until you reach Deep Water beach. You can end your walk here of course or you can extend it by linking up with the Seaview Promenade which will take you right into Repulse Bay. Having done the walk many times, we always prefer to continue on and finish at Repulse Bay. It’s a much nicer, cleaner swimming area with, with a sandy beach and several bars and restaurants along the beachfront. To continue, just keep walking past the Deep Water Bay BBQ pits on the far south side of the beach and pick up the start of the Seaview Promenade beside the small jetty and the tiny rocky atoll.

    This seaside promenade runs between Deep Water Bay (west) and Repulse Bay (east) and is informally part of the Southern District Coastal Trail on Hong Kong Island. The trail takes around 30-45 minutes, is perfectly flat, well-surfaced and easy to walk. It can be fairly heavily trafficked with pedestrians and joggers on weekends when the weather is nice.

    The walkway passes lovely seaside views of both Bays, Middle Island as well as some impressive properties facing the sea just above the trail. Stretches of the trail have large mature trees providing shade. You'll see nice greenery, Bougainvillea and other blooming plants and shrubs as well.

    On the whole, this seaview promenade is a nice way to make your way between Deep Water and Repulse Bays, perhaps not something that everyone will have time for but a nice way to spend part of your day if you do.

    ...it is worth climbing up to this lookout point so you can see across the island and over towards some others too. Looking down to the secluded ‘Coral Beach’ is especially lovely and it’s a good spot to rest for heading down there. The views of Cheung Chau itself are also excellent.

    Located at the SE tip on Hong Kong Island, Cape D'Aguilar (鶴咀海岸保護區) is a marine reserve for various oceanic researches. Where is also a family friendly hiking trail, with paved trek over almost the entire trail; and great ocean views awaits visitors at the end. The entire hike takes around 3 hours round trip, and the starting point can be reached easily by bus. The bones of Miss Willy has seen better days, and it was damaged by at least two typhoons in recent years.
