Before I searched about Hong Kong, I always associated Hong Kong with skyscrapers, concrete jungle, triad, kung fu, and dark alleys. Blame those movies though. Only when I decided to go to Hong Kong that I began to do a bit research about the attractions and places to visit. To my surprise, Hong Kong does have remarkable landscape and amazing hikes as well. Those hikes like Victoria Peak hiking trails, Sai Kung County hikes, Kowloon Peak, Dragon’s back, Lion’s Rock hike are just few of so many amazing hikes in Hong Kong. Although, i did not make all the hike due to drizzling and raining for the consecutive three days when i was there.
My itinerary was already set though, out of 14 days off that I got, 7 days were for Taiwan and 6 days for Hong Kong. But I had also decided to spent one day in Macau and one day in Hong Kong Disneyland. Thus, I only had four days to explore Hong Kong, and I wanted to explore both its nature and city center as well And, I got to do it with my mom. So, I needed to select places and hike that are friendly and medium-rated difficulties in term of elevation and geography. In summary, here's the rough map or itinerary of the four days in Hong Kong (I have excluded Macau and Disneyland Hong Kong in this map)
Out of 6 days that I had in Hong Kong, I decided to spent one day in the land of magic – Hong Kong Disneyland. I am not a super fan (more of ordinary fan) of any Disneyland Character, but I like themed park and or amusement park. The idea to enjoy a ride, be it in a carousel, riding a boat in a man-made “scary-unknown” jungle, riding a roller coaster is really fun. I mean, wouldn’t you want to be carried away from this earth for a while and enjoy being carefree and happy for just a moment?
My attractions to nature, landscape, and architecture will always win its place when it comes to concocting an itinerary. But, when I had a chance to experience amusement park, I’ve been on a roll as well. I went to Warner Bros Studio Tour in London on 2015, did bungee jump on 2012 in New Zealand, had a skydiving in Queensland Australia on 2014, had a Hot Balloon ride on Cappadocia on 2013, and this year I heard Disneyland calling my name.
In this post, i will share my experience and I will summarise the tips at the end of this post. So, make sure you keep reading (or just scroll down if you’re impatient and want to read the Tips already), haha...
