    I spent about 3 weeks in Hong Kong on my last trip and started doing trips away from the downtown and TST area, just to get away from the hustle and bustle. I done quite a few of these places on the list but the one I didnt know about is the Sai Kung. I would love to check this out and hopefully I be in Hong Kong to do this soon.

    I avoid big cities. I avoid the crowd. That’s why Hong Kong is not on my way. I am always afraid of getting lost in such a vast city. However, you presented it excitingly and encouragingly! I would like to see white dolphins in Tai O. Nan Lian Garden looks excellent too. And as a nature lover would love to see the endless stretches of greenery Nam Sang Wai. ANd I’m a fan of ghost towns. I have no idea that I can find a ghost town and island in the Hong Kong area! It seems great!

      I usually avoid big cities too but some big cities give you some extraordinary experiences that no other places would.

    I’ve always thought Hong Kong was a bit too busy and touristy for my liking – what can I say, my normal holiday habitat is the Australian Outback! But after reading your post, a Hong Kong stopover looks very appealing, with a good mix of natural attractions like the Dragons back and Sai Kung Geopark; world exclusives like the world’s oldest teapot and white dolphins; intriguing displays like the Coastal Defence museum; and the chance to get away from it all on a deserted island – Shek Kwu Chau is SO on my list, I’d love to be one of the few people in the world who’s actually seen it! Thanks for showing Hong Kong in a different light!

      I am glad that you change your perception of Hong-Kong Marion.

    Peng Chau island sounds interesting with the Finger Hill trek. And never knew about the near identical twin of Giant Causeway! Stunning capture. Tai O with its white dolphins and floating houses too sounds good. Wonder how these places aren’t touristy yet. Thanks for the tips on travel to these places.

    I have not been to Hong Kong but heard a lot of good things about it from my friends. I knew about some of the obvious things to do but you have opened up a pandora box. I would love to go famous trail of Finger Hill. Shek Kwu Chao looks virgin. Ghost towns and Yick Fat are on my list for sure.

    So many really cool hidden gems most of which I had not heard about. I had seen a few on instagram but the majority are less popular and therefore why I really like them. I prefer doing the less touristy stuff because it usually means less crows (which I seriously dislike). So in a place like HK so densely populated its great to find these hidden gems mostly away from the crowds. I think my favorites would be: The Giants Causway, The Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery and the Ng Tung Chai Waterfall.

    I’m so glad you made a post about the less popular attractions. Tai O seems right up our ally. I love charming fishing villages like that. The Yick Fat building also looks like an ideal place to catch some awesome photography shots!

    I love hidden gems posts because when I travel, I always make sure to take out some time to go offbeat. I never imagined Hong Kong to be so full of natural beauty so I am pleasantly surprised. I did not know there’s something similar to Giant’s Causway in Hong Kong, the geopark in Sai Kung must be spectacular. Also, walking Dragon’s back sounds like a great plan!
