Save Place
Ngong Ping Rd, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
It was humid and hot when we finally arrived Tung Chung train station of Hong Kong to take the cable car as a last step to reach Big Buddha. After a beautiful trip in the cable car finally he appeared slowly in front of us through the thick fog...
Save Place
Ping Shan Heritage Trail, Ping Shan, Hong Kong
I live and work in Hong Kong, and although I live in the New Territories, I had no idea this kind of village existed. Like many other expats that live in Hong Kong, it's easy to get into the routine life of spending your leisure time in the city....
Save Place
West Kowloon, Hong Kong
Still in the nascent stages of building (at this writing), the West Kowloon Cultural District puts on occasional shows. This was a Cantonese opera stage over a week in 2012.
Save Place
Hong Kong, 九龍城龍崗道19號G
When a Hong Kong foodie friend agreed to take us on a tour of Kowloon restaurants, we jumped at the chance. Dodging a downpour, we ducked into Chao Phraya Thai restaurant. "I don't care what else you order," he said, "but we must get the...
Save Place
Sha Tin, Hong Kong
It's tricky to find, tucked behind a Chinese cemetery, and a long climb (431 stairs!) to the top. But it's well worth the effort. Despite the name, the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, or Man Fat Tsz, isn’t actually a monastery. No monks live on...
Save Place
Tai Po, Hong Kong
Roughly three-quarters of Hong Kong is undeveloped land. The prime hike is the New Territories’ 62-mile MacLehose Trail, which skims gorgeous beaches and climbs to Hong Kong’s highest peak, Tai Mo Shan (3,140 feet). The trail is divided into 10...

Venture out to beautiful Sai Kung in the New Territories for memorable meal at this three-storey Mediterranean-style house. On a sunny day, you can be seated out on the lawn to enjoy your meal while enjoying the views of Sai Kung's clear waters....
Save Place
Mai Po, Hong Kong
Hong Kong is home to many species of birds and animals and allows you to get close to them in their natural habitat. In autumn or spring, trek out to Yuen Long in the New Territories for a day at the Mai Po Nature Reserve. These tranquil wetlands...
Save Place
Ngong Ping Rd, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
The colorful Po Lin Monastery was built more than a century ago in the secluded mountains of Lantau Island. In 1993, the 112-foot-high bronze Tian Tan Buddha, also known as the Big Buddha, was erected to face the monastery and north toward the...
Save Place
Ham Tin Wan, Hong Kong
This is my favourite place in Hong Kong, perhaps even in the world. This beach is part of the MacLehose Trail that winds in and out of the coast of the New Territories for about 100 kilometres. You can catch a bus from Sai Kung town to Pak Tam Au...
Save Place
Man Mo Temple, 124-126 Hollywood Rd, Tai Ping Shan, Hong Kong
Man Mo Temple was built by wealthy Chinese merchants between 1847 and 1862 as a tribute to the God of Literature (man) and the God of War (mo). Both deities were worshiped by ambitious students eager to succeed in the rigorous civil examinations...
