  • Can be completed within an hour from To Tei Wan station to and fro. View is amazing for somewhere urban. Surely must try if you are at hong kong.  more »
  • An excellent hike and not too hard. Its starts in Shek'o and ends on big wave beach...if its clear, stunning views over the Shek'o golf course....this hike is really not that hard.  more »
  • After having lunch in Shau Kei, we took a bus number 5. There are several streams of hand washing around the bus stop to facilitate the needs of everyone. It's not hard to do, it's about one or two hours away, and you see a size, a big dog or a puppy, and some strong old people. On the mountain, we saw people playing gliding umbrella, and the Mountain view was good. This is not very difficult to do, but a start to the mountain bar! There are too many people in the ointment.

  • Took bus 9 to the start of the trek and it was a really easy 15 minutes walk up to the peak and you can see really awesome view. Definitively worth it. Pack light but hydrate yourself enough and maybe grab a jacket along as it can get windy at the TOP.
  • Gorgeous hike. Not too strenuous, but their are steep parts and lots of rocks and roots so you need to be in reasonable shape. Definitely worth it for the incredible views.
  • Best view in HK! Worth just doing the 30min route from the trail start area and then making a U-turn back. Otherwise you can follow along the whole route which should take ~2h if you're at a good pace.
  • Amazing hike, medium difficulty suitable for everyone. The hike from To Tei Wan to Big Wave Bay takes 3-4 hours. Can enjoy the great view of Shek O and our wonderful nature.
  • Easy trekking route with beautiful view and strong wind, it take less than 2hrs slow walk and only one shelter. Bring raincoat along and apply sunblock.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
