The 25 Best Day Walks in Hong Kong
Author: Martin Williams
Publisher: John Beaufoy Publishing
About: Though renowned for its high rises and intense city life, Hong Kong also has a greener, more tranquil side. Around forty per cent of the land area is country park, and even the most remote parts are seldom more than a couple of hours from the city.
This book features 25 of the best day walks, along which you can discover this greener side. Trails take you across rugged hills and through forested valleys, alongside reservoirs and past waterfalls, with visits to temples and ageing villages, long abandoned forts and lonely islands, plus sighting birds and other wildlife.
Route maps illustrate the walks and the commentary and gorgeous photos bring each one vividly to life.
