Photos From Dragon’s Back Hike In Hong Kong

As all of you who follow my Facebook page know, I visited Hong Kong during the Chinese New Year holiday. The best destination I visited this time was absolutely the famous Dragon’s Back Hike. If you want to relax in a few hours hike in the middle of the nature, then this pretty easy hike is just for you!

Few tips:

  • Take the MTR to Shau Kei Wan station, then change to bus number 9 To Tei Wan, the hike starts right next to the bus stop, you can’t miss it!
  • Go during the morning or later during the day, avoid hot and harsh midday sun!
  • Take water and snacks with you
  • There are no trash bins along the road so remember not to litter!

Get off on this bus stop, you will then see a sign and a map to the Dragon’s Back Bone.

The view on top is amazing! During the hike you feel like you have left the bustling Hong Kong, even though your are on the Hong Kong Island! A great get-a-way for a few hours or for a full day!

    I can only guess some of the traditional characters if they resemble the simplified ones. I can’t read a newspaper or anything like that in traditional.

    Hi, Sara. Sorry that I forgot introducing myself. I am a native Cantonese boy who is working in Guangzhou now, and used to live in Finland for 3 years. I discovered your blog after I visited Helsinki this spring festval ago. Because the experiences of you and I are opposite, I found that the your point of view is quite attracted to me. And from now on, I will follow your blog and give comments to it.
