Once in a while, it is nice to get away from the sheer madness of it all. Away from throngs of determined last minute Christmas shoppers and the incessant jingles ringing through the malls.
Over the festive weekend, together with A and H, we spent a most lovely Christmas eve afternoon hiking through one of Hong Kong’s most popular and well-loved trail.
Once voted Asia’s favourite urban hike by Time Magazine, the Dragon’s Back is the aptly named spine of a ridge on the east coast of Hong Kong Island. What is most amazing about this trail is it’s proximity to the city and yet seemingly remote location. Views of majestic hills, dazzling coastline and distant islands – all it took was a little over an hour from where we stay.
At 284 metres above ground, quiet and peaceful was this December 24th.
