Many people think of Hong Kong as all smog and skyscrapers however you don’t have to venture too far out of the city to find a great outdoor life. We had an excellent trek with awesome views when we walked the final 8 km section of the 50 km Hong Kong trail. The trek takes its name from the profile of the hill which resembles a dragons back!
Getting to the start of the Dragons Back trek
- Find your way to Shau Kei Wan MTR station
- Take Exit A1 and turn right. The bus terminal is immediately behind the MTR station.
- Find bus number 9 towards Shek O. These buses take cash only and the cost in May 2016 was HKD $8 each (approx £0.70).
- Ask the driver to stop at To Tei Wan stop which is the start of the hike. The bus journey takes around 20 minutes.
We ended our 8 km trek at Big Wave Bay where you can catch bus number 9 back to the MTR station.
