  • Nice country park which is very close to urban area. Actually, it is only 5 min drive to Sham Shui Po.
  • Good landscape next to highway with convenient bus routing. However, there is too much monkey to observe people food.
  • Follow the nature trail signs and see some monkeys at the entrance right away (if you're lucky). The path going to the reservoir also had some monkeys but not much when I was there. Be aware of the cars driving by and the large amount of mosquitos sometimes roaming the area.
  • Beautiful natural views, easy hiking and jogging trail, great for beginners in hiking and people living in the city. Loads of history on the reservoir and preservation too. Consider monkeys and boars to be extra bonus for your rewarding trip.
  • Nice views and good hike. Must do.

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.
