- …as well as beautiful parks to see too. Some of the parts are a little narrow considering how busy it can get but other features more than make up for this, like the aforementioned views and very well looked after public toilets.Written 19 March 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- One of the most interesting things to see at the historic village of Lai Chi Wo is the stretch of coastline lined with beautiful sedimentary rocks - the result Lai Chi Wo being is included in the Hong Kong UNESCO Geopark. It is a great place to view rare and impressive geology while spending time enjoying the outdoors of the Plover Cove Country Park.
The sedimentary rocks are identified as point (6) on the Lai Chi Wo Trail. The trail starts at the village and makes it way through a really nice Heritiera forest, mangrove forest and mudflat. You then start to see some of the sedimentary rocks before walking over a an old village dam structure. Once you reach the other side, you are treated to a trove of brightly coloured rock structures that are amongst the most beautiful we have found around Hong Kong. Just look at the pictures attached to this review to get a feel for what you can expect to see here.Written 22 June 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- There are several hiking trails around the Peak but this is a very easy option. It's a gentle walking path, rather than a hike. The trail is a circular loop that takes you around the Peak, starting and finishing across from the Peak Tower. It offers many of the same spectacular views over Hong Kong that you get from the Sky Terrace, the big difference being that this is free. As it is a circular path, you also see more than one side of the island.
It is flat and paved the whole way around so that even small children with little legs can manage it easily. You will pass lots of other people along the way and it is a popular running spot for locals.
The path takes you through very typical jungle-like Hong Kong growth. Banyan tree root systems grow, tentacle-like, over the retaining walls and half way around the path, aerial roots from Indian Rubber trees meet in the middle to create a creepy tunnel-like effect across the path. If left to their own devices, one wonders how long it would take for the vines and banyan trees to swallow up Hong Kong. Not long, I suspect. Lugard Falls is also a nice point of interest and if there has been recent rain, it will be in full flow, cascading down the mountain.
STARTING POINT: Start at the junction of Lugard and Harlech Rds (beside the Peak Lookout Cafe). You can walk either way, it doesn’t matter because you will end up back at the same spot. I like to to go clockwise because you get a great view of the Peak Tower as you finish the walk. Allow about 40 minutes for a leisurely walk.
NOTE: Afterwards, head over to the Lion Pavilion (just below the Peak Tower) where you will get another free birds’ eye view over central Hong Kong.Written 5 October 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This garden is from Tuseng Kwan O, and It's a pretty large garden publicly for me. There are lots trees, flowers, and no stinky gases from cars. It's ,for me, a great place to relax from the anxious city life. There is also a large grassland where you can sit on it, with your tent, then you could have a little nap there.However, this garden took me ages to figure it out, i knew Hong Kong Velodrome and the Tsueng Kwan O Sports Centre, but i never knew that there's a garden beside the Velodrome beside! There is not much advertisement, and nearly no information about this garden. But after I figure this garden out, I realize that this garden can take you to the nearest shopping centre -- TKO spot, which called Sheung Tak Shopping Centre before. nonetheless, there is a cycle track that can take you from the garden to Hang Hau which only take you about 4-5 minutes to arrive, what a wonderful chance for you to do some sports! This garden is a beautiful place, also relaxing. I believe there's no such place at Tseung Kwan O for you to rest, for you to build a tent (As for as I known) （實際上有205字，不過trapadvisor有點問題？）（佔字數哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈）Written 19 August 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Dutch Lane is a lesser known trail between the Wan Chai Gap and Magazine Gap just below the Peak Road. It is an easy and flat 1.5 km hike, that leisurely winds through thick forested and flush green areas of mountain slope. It is also very quiet due to the lower numbers of hikers and walkers that make use of this particular trail.
The trail is paved for around 1 km starting from the Wan Chai Green Trail near Stubbs Road but gives way to a natural trail for the last 500 metres or so in the direction of Magazine Gap. On this side, the Dutch Trail seems overgrown at times, a real countryside feel, not something you expect this close to the chaos of the city just down the slope. There are a few streams you pass by, loads of trees, vegetation, flowering plants and shrubs and the occasion views of the harbour through the forest.
We recently make our hike back and forth starting from the Wan Chai Green Trail side, including numerous stops for photos and to simply enjoy the quiet and scenic grounds, the hike took us around 1.25 hours. We passed no more than 15 other people using the trail throughout.
In the end, the Dutch Lane is a good short hike to add to the Wan Chai Green Trail. It is very near to the HK Police Museum, another attraction in the area that you can combine with your hike.Written 20 November 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- The Eagle's Nest Nature Trail is a family-friend walk located in the western section of the Lion Rock Country Park. It is around 4km in distance, mostly flat and a relatively easy trail that merges with the MacLehose Trail Section #5 between the Kowloon Reservoir (at the southern end of the Kam Shan Country Park) and Beacon Hill.
The trail makes way through attractive woodlands. You will see numerous tree species (some panels are found along the trail) and there are very high chances that you will encounter macaques, particularly near the start of the trail at the Kam Shan Country Park & Lion Rock Country Park boundaries.
You can combine the Eagle's Nest Nature Trail with a continuation of MacLehose Trail Section #5 to the west to the landmark Lion Rock and onward east towards Tate's Cairn. Alternatively, you could link up with Section #6 to the north through Kam Shan Country Park through the Kowloon Reservoirs area and what is known as Monkey Hill, a famous hot spot for macaques spotting in Hong Kong.Written 7 April 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This is a 2.1 km loop trail within the Aberdeen Country Park on the south side of Victoria Peak. It is situated along the north and west side of the two Aberdeen Reservoirs and takes in a handful of stops where you find exercise and other fitness equipment, the trail is flat, easy to walk or jog.
The scenery around this trail is pretty good as well, you pass beside both lakes and can take detours to enjoy the reservoirs and historical monuments (ie dams, valve houses, bridge and others). You can also combine sections of this trail with others such as the Aberdeen Nature Trail at the lakes or the Aberdeen Reservoir Road which includes a fair steep climb up to the Wan Chai Gap and northern boundary of the country park.Written 23 November 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
