A quick hike in Hong Kong

I was in Hong Kong for work during the week, and Ian flew up to join me for a quick weekend break.

The Wongs generously hosted us in their apartment, JD in particular was very happy to share his new computer game with Ian as they played into the middle of the night like old times!

For once the highlight of our trip wasn’t around food. That’s not to say the food wasn’t good. The Wongs introduced us to lots of yummy food in their neighbourhood and also to a really good Chinese restaurant, West Villa, in Lee Garden (On Yee gets all the credit for this!) where you have to reserve the char siew in advance. It’s worth it!

The highlight of our trip was actually an afternoon spent hiking at Shek O Country Park, way to the south-east on Hong Kong island. We had both been to Hong Kong numerous times before but this is the first time we were going hiking even though we’ve heard so many good things about the hiking in Hong Kong. Being amateurs though, we picked an easy trail – the Dragon’s Back.

 

It was an interesting, tiring but really fun experience, the views were lovely, and JD was sweet enough to pack strawberries for us all to snack on when we took a break mid-way through.

If we get to spend more time in Hong Kong in future, we should definitely do more hikes!
