Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
Experience Hong Kong from a new perspective. Unspoilt hill country and outlying islands, far away from the crowds.
Hong Kong welcomes with an iconic skyline, varied cuisine, and lush, protected nature where rare birds and colourful traditions thrive. One of our more popular tours, come explore the hills and outlying islands, where we walk through lush open countryside and along deserted coastal paths away from the crowds.
Underneath the neon lights, glass and steel of Hong Kong’s commercial persona is a cultural landscape where its Chinese roots and colonial connections become intertwined.
Hong Kong is a beguiling place to visit; a teeming metropolis with a harbour surrounded by skyscrapers, yet with the attraction of walking trails in the backdrop of the relatively remote and unspoiled New Territories. The Chinese metropolis is full of colour: outdoor markets, shopping precincts, streets awash with illuminated signs and shops filled with exotic goods and foods from mainland China. The harbour scenes are a myriad of ferries, sampans, junks and floating restaurants. A walk to the lofty heights of Victoria Peak overlooking all of this is a must!
Beyond the maze of streets and skyscrapers lies another world of unspoilt hilly countryside and countless islands where little has changed for centuries. Numerous ferries ply these outlying islands, havens of peace far from the crowds. We’ll wander across Lantau Island to visit Tai O, a little village that seems to come out of the Middle Ages and walk on car free Lamma Island. North of Kowloon towards the border with mainland China, we come to the New Territories, protected by National Country Park status and crossed by the MacLehose Trail. The colonial Kowloon-Canton Railway gives access to mainland China – ideal for a ‘free day’ adventure (a visa is required if this option is chosen).
Hong Kong is a superb holiday destination and delivers far more than may have been imagined or believed possible. Come and experience Hong Kong with us for a new perspective.
