So close to nature yet so close to town – this is what I enjoy most about Hong Kong!

Brian Hayes hiker, globetrotter, Hong Kong resident

Hong Kong is famous for the glitzy skyscrapers that form its cityscape, yet about 70 per cent of Hong Kong is green countryside with a remarkable variety of landscapes and diverse wildlife. Mountains, forests, islands, beaches, wetlands and country parks are all within easy reach of the city. Experience our stunning world-class geopark, wonderful Wetland Park, beautiful hiking trails and you will soon discover the green behind the gold!
