Hong Kong is a city of dramatic contrasts. Its towering skyscrapers, which are monuments to the city’s development as a world financial centre, stand against a magnificent backdrop of the Victoria Harbour and its constant traffic of ferries, junks, sampans and ocean liners.
Although Hong Kong is one of the world’s greatest metropolises, three quarters of its 1,108 square kilometres of land is countryside! Scenically, it offers a landscape rising from sandy beaches and rocky foreshores to heights of almost 1,000 metres, woodlands and mountain ranges covered by open grassland and a variety of scenic vistas.
Diethelm Travel now offers four guided hikes and walks from the Dragon’s Back to the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark with its unique landforms and landscapes. Hailed by Time Magazine as Asia’s best urban adventure, this ‘away-from-it-all’ hike takes you to Lamma Island, known for its 6,000 years of fishing history, and to the deserted beaches along the spectacular Sai Kung peninsula.
For the adventurous, discover the wild side of Asia’s world city and the real magic of Hong Kong’s beautiful countryside, deserted beaches and mountain ridges all within easy reach of the urban hub of Hong Kong!
