For magnificent views, follow the trail to Lantau Peak, the second highest summit in Hong Kong. This is not a challenge to be taken lightly: assess the fitness levels and walking ability of those in your group before setting off.

  • It is such a great place to get away from busy city with a group of friends to hike and enjoy the natural environment!
  • great hike with awesome 360 views. will take about 4 to 6 hours to and fro. take note theres very little vegetation cover so if youre going on a warm or sunny day, bring lots of water and i hat if possible. there's also a small unmanned shelter at the top of lantau peak.
  • Lantau trail is excellent if you merely want to go out from the city bustle, and different from the other trails on HK Island and New Territories at that you don't see buildings for most of it.
  • This place made me feel free & at peace;) I really love it;)
  • Easy hike with good scenery :)

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.
