[by Ma Chaerim] Hong Kong boasts wonderful scenery surrounded by nature. City view and harbor view from Hong Kong are enough to draw the attention of people around the world. How about enjoying nature in Hong Kong? Here you will find places to visit and activities to enjoy.
Beautiful Beaches of Hong Kong
When you think of Hong Kong, you usually think of beautiful night views and tall skyscrapers. But in fact, Hong Kong has as many beautiful beaches as much as the night view. If you want to surf, head out to the 'Big Wave Bay Beach' on the eastern end of Hong Kong Island. It is a beach loved by windsurfers as well as being preserved as a Hong Kong monument. In 1970, a prehistoric rock sculpture was discovered, and it is preserved as a cultural art work.
If you want to get away from the city and enjoy the natural scenery to heal, then ‘Silvermine Bay Beach’ is worth a visit. It is popular among urban people who want a quiet life. It is a good place to relax with a variety of restaurants with sea view terraces near the pier and final bus station. Down south of Hong Kong is the 'Repulse Bay Beach' with a spectacular view of the resort atmosphere. Repulse Bay is a popular residential area by the wealthy, and it is popular among locals and tourists alike. Enjoy sunbathing under the sun to enjoy a luxurious day.
Activities in Hong Kong
If you want to make more special memories, why not try the Hong Kong hiking trail. Let's take a moment out of the city and feel the beautiful Hong Kong’s green scenery. CNN Travel described the ‘Drangon’s Back’ as one of the ‘Hong Kong Island’s top 5 Hiking Trail for beginners’. ‘Dragon’s back is the most popular hiking course in Hong Kong. As soon as you reach the trail, you will be able to face the beautiful view of the South China Sea.
Take the Peak Tram to the Peak Observatory, 396 meters above sea level, and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Hong Kong along the Lugard Road for free. Lugard Road is named after Sir Frederick Lugard, the 14th governor of Hong Kong, and the slippery roads on the narrow cliffs have a century old history, which makes it meaningful just for the existence.
