Most people think of Hong Kong as a metropolis with skyscraper after skyscraper. While you are not wrong, but do you know there are actually more than 75% of Hong Kong are undeveloped and they are only 30 minutes away from the city?

Bob is so personable and knowledgable, he made our entire hike not only fun but much more enjoyable than we had anticipated! As for the hike itself, pretty much every part of it was breathtaking. The view, the climbing, and the village at the end.
Hiking Dragon
Well, probably almost everybody can hike this fantastic part of Hong Kong's trails and enjoy hiking, the outstanding sights and simply that great feeling of being outdoors. But to me the decisive difference was Bob, the tour guide.
Hiking the Dragon
I hiked the Dragon's Back yesterday with Bob Ng and we had such a great afternoon. I was able to discover the nature part of Hong Kong in a short time and Bob gave us so much informations regarding the landscape.
