農曆新年行山活動 Lunar New Year Hiking

農曆新年期間市面非常淡靜,商舗和食肆大都休息,即使照常營業的很多時都會有加一的安排。假期間除了拜年外,最慳錢的活動相信是行山。既可一家人消磨數小時,也對身體健康有裨益。就像今個新年假期,我們一家就走了兩轉了。 During the Lunar New Year Holidays, most of the shops and restaurants will be closed. Even you can find restaurant that is open for service, it will definitely include a 10% surcharge. Other than visiting relatives or friends, hiking is believed to be the most cost saving activities. Not only we can consume some of our free time, it will also bring good health to us and that's why we had two hiking trips in this holidays.

短程行山路線與鬧市中的悠閒空間 Short Hiking Trip & Leisure Space in the Heart of the City

非假日的行山路線,我們都會集中在港島區的短程路線,這樣會有較充裕的時間接送家中小孩下課。像近期行過好幾次的金督馳馬徑便是其中一個很好的選擇。 Our weekday hiking routes are normally focused around those short trails in the Hong Kong Island where we can have adequate time to pick up our little boy after school. The Sir Cecil's Ride located in the eastern part of the Hong Kong Island that we hiked recently is one of the great choices.

Hiking to Big Wave Bay (大浪灣) along the Leaping Dragon Walk (龍躍徑)

Last week, I went hiking with my wife and one of my cycling buddies to the Big Wave Bay (大浪灣) along the Leaping Dragon Walk (龍躍徑) located in the eastern corner of the Hong Kong Island. We started our journey from the Siu Sai Wan Promenade in Chaiwan, which is right next to the entrance of the Leaping Dragon Walk.

Stanley Promenade

Short Trip to Stanley, Hong Kong

Woke up in a hot summer morning with nothing to do. My wife asked if I would like to have a short trip to Stanley with our boy. Well, why not??

Sam Mun Tsai

Hong Kong Cycling Routes Collection – FoTan to Sam Mun Tsai

Last Sunday's weather was not very stable. A hot sunny day but with occasional thunderstorm moving across the region as advised by the Hong Kong Observatory. Instead of taking a long endurance journey, the group opted to ride on a short relaxing trip to the old fishing village, Sam Mun Tsai.

Tin Hau Festival Celebration at Sai Kung

The 23rd of March of the Lunar Calendar is the birthday of Tin Hau (or Mazu in Taiwan). According to informal historical recording, she was born in China around the 10th century and was later became the Goddess of the Sea. This year, the Tin Hau birthday (or Tin Hau Festival) was on 8 May 2018. There are various celebration activities held by local communities in Yuen Long, Tuen Mun and several traditional fishing villages. On last Saturday, my family and I visited Sai Kung, an old fishing village in Hong Kong, and had a glimpse into one of the local celebration events.

If you like hiking in Hong Kong, there is a place that you must make a visit - Tai Mo Shan. I've been to Tai Mo Shan a number of times. Cold Winter, cool autumn, hot summer; Sunny day, rainy day; hiking and even cycling. No matter how and when, you will find your ways to enjoy.
