While shopping extravaganzas and exquisite dining may well be ranked amongst the best things to do in Hong Kong, if you look beyond the conventional, you will discover a whole other side to this highly advanced city built on a very old civilisation. Immerse yourself in the splendour of Hong Kong’s nature, its breathe taking landscape, long and sinuous shoreline, stunning landforms and interesting rock formations, for this is what a Geopark hiking tour is all about.
With eight main geological locations, the walking tour will kick off along the High Island Reservoir route and take you through a myriad of interesting landforms. The magnificent hexagonal columnar joints, the largest of its kind in the world, and the unique sea caves of Long Ke are sure to keep you fixated with its interesting natural formations. You will be surprised at how many times this trek will get you stopping along the way to absorb the engulfing beauty of soothing sea views, the many surrounding islands and the turquoise blue reservoir. Even the end of the tour presents you with the interesting opportunity of exploring the Sheng Yiu Hakka Village Museum, a preserved village from another era.
If you are looking for that much needed spontaneous getaway from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life, a tour in the Geopark will prove to be an entertaining and therapeutic experience. Escape into the simplicity of the natural surroundings Hong Kong offers in abundance and treat yourself with that well deserved time out from a busy schedule.
