Out of the Concrete Jungle: Exciting Outdoor Activities To Try In Hong Kong

The road less traveled has no road at all.

Once named by TIME Magazine as the best urban hiking trail in Asia, the Dragon’s Back in southeastern Hong Kong is a ridge near the coast that takes the shape of a resting dragon (hence its name). Easily accessible form the city center, it makes a great destination for a quick escape, boasting glittering vistas of the South China Sea that you won’t get anywhere else on the island.

Directions: Take the MTR to Shau Kei Wan Station, Exit A, and walk to Sau Kei Wan Bus Terminal. Ride Bus 9 or the minibus headed to Shek O. Step down at To Tei Wan, Shek O Road.

2) Surf at Big Wave Bay Beach
