Book Description

Have you ever heard of trails in Hong Kong except shopping and foods?

There are 4 famous trails in Hong Kong.

The first one goes to the longest trail of “Maclehose Trail” in Hong Kong. The 100-Km-long trail has been wonderfully established by Sir Maclehose who was an English governor long time ago. “Hong Kong Trail” well-prepared in Hong Kong Island has the most convenient stages for the travelers to experience the fantastic trails in Hong Kong. “Lantau Trail” bravely sitting in Lantau Island has 2 beautifully linked mountains for hikers and backpackers. You will meet the biggest Buddha statue at the finish of the stage of Lantau Peak. You may have my word that their beauty will never let you down. The last one goes to “Wilson Trail” sitting at New Territory which is a little bit more adventurous than others.

If you take a subway only with your cell phone to the hidden but breathtaking trails in Hong Kong, you will meet an absolutely different face of Hong Kong from the prevailing image of the heaven for shopping and foods.

Here introduces the 10 matchless stages extracted from the 4 trails. They are,

(1) The Peak Circle Walk & Pok Ful Lam Country Park
(2) Dragon’s Back
(3) Mount Parker Road (栢 架 山 道) & Sir Cecil’s Ride
(4) Tai Tam Country Park (大 潭 郊 野 公 園)
(5) Ham Tin Wan (鹹 田 灣)
(6) Ma On Shan (馬 鞍 山)
(7) Shing Mun Reservoir Country Park (城 門 潭 郊 野 公 園)
(8) Sunset Peak (大 東 山)
(9) Lantau Peak (鳳 凰 山)
(10) Peng Chau Island (坪 洲)

Tai Tam Country Park(4) will be introduced together with Mount Parker Road(3) which can be enjoyed as one stage if you try. Turtle Cove Beach at Red Hill and Repulse Bay Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong, will be added to the trails. And, cheap but tasty restaurants for “Yam Cha(飮 茶)”, the traditional Chinese breakfast with tea, are to be introduced at the finish.

This book is a “road”. How to confidently get to the mouth of the trails by travelers own self not by chasing after guide, is the main focus of this publication. If you take a look at the sample of this book, you will come to know the reason why it’s a “road”.

Travelers do not easily raise their hands for a taxi to their destination. Public transportation such as subway, monorail, buses, trains, boats and ferries, would be their main tool to get the mouth of the attractions.

How to find a bus stop or a ferry pier from the exit of a MTR (“subway”) station, is the key for your successful journey to the beautiful trails in Hong Kong. Considering that there are so many signposts on the trails, if you succeed in getting the starting point exactly by public transportation, there is nothing for you but to enjoy the fantastic trails in Hong Kong.

For the specific purpose to the starting point by your own self, this book shows many maps and photos to explain what kind of bus you have to take, how to find the bus stop without trial and error, which exit you have to go to find the bus stop and where you have to get off the bus. You will find that many pages of this book are allocated to “how to get the starting point”.

With this book, you don’t need to buy another map for the trails. Moreover, you can get the starting point by your own self without asking to Hong Kongers who have also no exact ideas about the hidden trails in Hong Kong. With onsite information in this book, you don’t’ need to worry about the successful access to the entrance of the trails and the ways for your return to hotel from the finish. You may come back to your hotel around 2 or 3 p.m. assuming that you leave your lodge around at 7 in the morning.

Download this book in your mobile phone and embark on a subway towards the breathtaking trails in Hong Kong you have never heard before. Then, your cell phone will present you a wonderful journey accomplished by your own self.
