Your second 24hrs in Hong Kong

Amazing views……

9:00 Get some breakfast. It would be perfect if you can find a nice place to get some traditional Dim Sum for breakfast, for example at Dimdimsum (4 branches).

10.00 Make sure to buy some water and snacks and wear your sports outfit. You’re heading off to one of the most popular hikes in Hong Kong – a 2-3 hour journey through Hong Kong’s greenery. You can wear normal sneakers though.

10.15 Take the DingDing or MTR to Shau Kei Wan (exit A) and go to the bus terminus. Take bus 9 or the red minibus with the sign “Shek O” to the To Tei Wan stop on Shek O Road. If you’re pressed for time you can grab a taxi to the start of the Dragon’s Back trail.

11.00 You’re going to start the hike. You’ll go to the top of the mountain and will be graced with panoramic views of Shek O Village and Beach, and Big Wave Bay.

14.00 If the weather is on your side, hike towards Big Wave Bay to cool off in the water, grab a cold beer and if the waves are good, maybe take a surf lesson.

15.00 Head back to Shau Kei Wan, or take a taxi. From Shau Kei Wan you go back to your hotel, take a shower and dress up for tonight.

17.00 Take the MTR to Prince Edward. Get off at Exit A and take the turn to Playing Field Rd. You walk straight through the Mong Kong Flower Market. Continue to Yuen Po Street Bird Garden.

18.00 Take a taxi or take the MTR again (1 stop) to Mong Kong. If you still have a lot of energy, you can walk to Mong Kong in 15 minutes. From MTR exit D you will enter the famous Ladies Market. You can buy a lot of crap here, but if you’re lucky you can find really nice souvenirs, cheap phone covers and (fake designer) bags. One street to the left you will find Sneaker Street- with nicely priced sneakers (this is not a market, you’ll find real shops here).

19.30 Grab a taxi or take the MTR again (Jordan Station, Exit A) to the Temple Street Night Market. Stroll around the small shops, eat some local food and get your dessert at Mammy Pancake. Stay for a while to enjoy the atmosphere and drink some beers.

22.00 You’ll be probably done after this day, but if your still in for some fun take the MTR to Wan Chai. Take exit A1, take a left turn to Lockhart Road or Jaffe Road and grab your drinks in one of Hong Kong’s famous Wan Chai bars – welcome to the red light district.
