Dragon’s back is a familiar escape with pleasing scenery, having
an easy access from the city that gets highly mentioned in all
travel guides of Hong Kong. The ridge-top view of this trail looks
like a sleeping dragon slouched on the grounds of the Shek O
Country Park. It is considered to be the urban hiking spot in Asia
and offers a great opportunity for all the trekking lovers. Those
who are beginners in hiking, it is great for them. If you want to
experience the countryside without a crowd then nothing else
better than visiting the “Dragon’s Back” ridge.
Tai Lam Country Park, which is Hong Kong’s second largest and
expensive country park, occupies 5,412 hectares of the Western New
Territories Syrian grounds. Extending from Tsuen Wan to Tuen Mun its
visit area surrounds the countryside. Tai Lam Country Park is mostly
granite except a small area in the north-eastern corner. This is also one
of the top hiking places in Hong Kong.
The Giant Buddha or the Big Buddha is situated on the Ngong Ping
Lantau Island and is the top sightseeing attraction in Hong Kong. This
bronze giant statue of Big Buddha was completed in 1993. It is 34m
high and 250 metric tons. This Big Buddha is listed as the second
largest outdoor sitting statue in the world, after the one in Taiwan.
You can take a ride along this impressive gigantic statue in a Cable Car
from the “Ngong Ping 360” cable car terminus. Surprisingly it can be
even seen from Macau in a clear day.
If you feel tucked up in the hectic schedule of the city then
Kowloon Park is a great escape that will wash away your
weariness like mountain spring. Amazing thing is this calm
place was once an army fortress that was handed over by the
military department for public use in the year 1970. The park
has a 200 metres sheltered walkway, which is a pure bliss
during the rainy time.
