Who's going?

Hong Kong is well known as a fashion hub and food paradise within Asia. It has been a major destination for shopping and feasting for decades - and this stereotype remains to this day. However, our trip will be different from the usual Hong Kong getaway. Shopping and eating will not be the focus, rather this trip will be the first in a series of hiking and walking trips that aim to provide a whole new way for outdoor enthusiasts to experience Hong Kong.  The city has 3 main areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories. This action-packed itinerary will bring you to each of these areas and allow you to experience for yourself character of each of them. And of course, there will be some free time so it will still be possible to enjoy a little bit of shopping and delicious.

Day 2 will start after breakfast when we will head off for a full day tour Geopark. Geopark is a UNESCO world heritage site that contains breathtaking vistas, unique geological structures, and even beaches! This is may sound epic, but it is not strenuous - only 4 km so we can move at a leisurely pace.

This day will also include a seafood lunch (provided) in a coastal village and a ride back in a traditional junk boat. The serene nature in this area will make you forget that you are in one of the biggest cities in the world - and when you show the pictures to your friends they won't believe that this is Hong Kong! We will then head back to the hotel on public transportation and a relaxing evening on our own.

Day 3 will again begin after breakfast. We will then head out on public transportation for our hike along the Dragon's back trail. It is located in Shek O Country Park and is part of Hong Kong Island. This is a 4-hour long hike that is 5.5 km long. It is an easy to moderate hike, but it is still quite doable. Dragon's back also boasts beautiful sea vistas, refreshing sea breezes, and lush green paths. Depending on the conditions we may even spot a paraglider or two.

After the hike, we will reward ourselves with a traditional Hong Kong dim sum (provided) before heading off to visit the Kowloon markets. The Kowloon markets sell everything you can think if from live birds and fish to Jade and cloth. We will learn all about the history and culture of this fascinating area all while the sight, sounds and smells of the market excite our senses. After our busy day, we will return to the hotel for another relaxing evening.
