Hong Kong’s Best Kept Secrets Revealed

Hong Kong Tourism Board’s (HKTB) newly-launched Great Outdoors campaign and its corresponding Your Guide to Hiking & Cycling in Hong Kong will educate visitors about the wealth of outdoor experiences available. By taking readers into a diverse range of nature trails, all located less than two miles outside of the city, the brand-new guide simplifies the planning for experiencing Hong Kong’s spectacular, nature-filled wonderland. The carefully-selected nature trails highlight the best of Hong Kong’s great outdoors within three different areas: Hiking in Heritage, Picture-perfect Vistas, and Geographical Wonders.

Hiking in Heritage: Hiking in Heritage emphasizes beautiful urban hiking trails around Hong Kong that range from easy to difficult. The luscious greenery along these trails is not only home to stunning views and urban landscapes, but also offers a glimpse into Hong Kong’s storied history and colonial past.

Picture-perfect Vistas: Photography lovers will be wowed by routes like the Magnificent Landscapes trail, which takes hikers up the 869-meter Sunset Peak (so-named for its glorious views of the setting sun) and the remote and romantic Silvermine Bay Beach, through plenty of breathtaking scenery along the way.

Geographical Wonders: Hong Kong’s New Territories are home to diverse geological formations that create eerily beautiful landforms. The natural wonders of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark include the Sai Kung Volcanic Rock Region and the Sedimentary Rock Region. Both areas were formed between 140-160 million years ago from volcanic materials, and boast diverse geological formations and idyllic-looking islands formed entirely of sedimentary rocks.
