Dragon's Back, Hong Kong

4.8
#1 of 74 in Outdoors in Hong Kong
A short ride away from Hong Kong busiest areas, Dragon's Back provides a relaxing hike for visitors wishing to escape the big city for a while. Long but not overly challenging, the undulating trail offers scenic vistas and peaceful natural surroundings. A viewing platform allows you to admire the coastline and spot paragliders. Bring walking shoes, lots of water, and don't forget your swimsuit if you want to take a dip at the well-maintained beach near the trail's end. Dragon's Back is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hong Kong Edition.

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.
