The semi-autonomous trading province of Hong Kong is world famous as a big, gleaming metropolis. It’s a Mecca of high-rise buildings and bustling streets. In fact you could easily be fooled into thinking this region was simply a city and nothing more. But you’d be wrong…

With its skyscrapers vs. sea and mountains outlook, hiking in Hong Kong is more natural than you’d think. The undeveloped, hilly terrain hugging high-rises, makes hikes here exciting, challenging, and they come with the bonus of awe-inspiring views of the city sprawl.

In a region that’s more known for night markets and rooftop bars, the hiking scene here is underrated. Lucky for you, because that (often) means uncrowded trails.

Like anywhere in the world, you’ll need to be prepared on any of its trails. But it’s totally worth it. As long as you have the right knowledge and kit, you’ll have the most unforgettable trip ever.

To help you out we’ve created this handy guide to hiking in Hong Kong, listing the best hikes, how to get to them, what to take with you, and more. Let’s get hiking!

Hong Kong is a treasure trove of sorts given its culinary delights, bustling skyline, dynamic culture, rustic charm, and rich landscape among many others. With that in mind, you would need a lifetime in order to experience just about everything — however, with just this post, I can get you started with the top 10 fun things to do in Hong Kong to help make your stay a memorable one!

Naturally, I won’t be discussing most of the typical must-do’s in the city such as visiting Victoria Peak, Victoria Harbour, Lan Kwai Fong, etc. because you can refer to my Hong Kong itinerary guide for that.

Hong Kong is the first place abroad that I have traveled to; but on that particular trip, what I mainly did was just eat and shop as I accompanied a friend of mine back in university.

So when I was able to finally come back again to do a more proper ‘tour’ of the city, I did my best to cover as many activities and attractions as possible! And today, I am sharing with you my 5-day Hong Kong itinerary, which also includes a day trip to the nearby city of Macau. Plus, it includes an array of other must-dos that you can consider doing in case you have more days to spare or if you have a different travel style.

But before I go on, I think it’s best that I give you a bit of background about the geographical area of Hong Kong because a lot of people actually have this misconception that there’s not much to do there, or that there’s not much green at all — two things that are absolutely NOT true.

Tin Hau Temple | Guo Lan Fruit Market | Tung Nam Lau Hotel | Red Brick Building | Yua Ma Tei Theatre | 5 Walking Itineraries in Culture District | Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market | Xiqu Centre | West Kowloon Station | HK Museum of History
West Kowloon Cultural District is a large cultural space designed to be an art and cultural hub of Hong Kong. Built on a wedge-shaped reclaimed piece of land, it offers opportunities to intimately interact with the art and artisans. In a densely populated city like Hong Kong, such an open space right next to the harbor is a welcome space. This HK neighborhood is a melange of history, heritage, and modern traditions with some well-curated itineraries.

Planning a trip to Ireland can be a lengthy task. One that leaves many scratching their head or pulling their hair out. But, lucky for you, I’ve come to your rescue. Hi, I’m Laura, your local guide. It’s my goal to make your trip to Ireland as carefree as possible. I love seeing visitors fall in love with my home country. Ireland is a magical place, and I understand just how much the trip means to you. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I can’t wait to help you plan it. Now, let’s go on a road trip, an Ireland 7 day itinerary exploring the countries most iconic cliffs, beautiful national parks and we will even take a journey out to one of Ireland’s most scenic islands.

But first, we need to address the big question.

IS 7 DAYS IN IRELAND ENOUGH TIME?

To put it simply, no. 7 days is not nearly enough to see all there is to do in Ireland. In fact, a whole month would only allow you to scratch the service of what the country has to offer. However, with that being said, oftentimes one week in Ireland is all most tourists have. And, while it’s not a huge amount of time, it is enough to see some of the countries major highlights.

Are you planning a visit to Ireland for the first time?

If so, you’ll need some type of itinerary to guide you.

And while Ireland is small, there’s a lot of ground to cover.

In fact, you won’t see everything in 10 days, but with this guide you will see some of the country’s most popular attractions — and a few quirky hidden gems thrown in for good measure.

When designing an itinerary for a first time visit to Ireland, it’s always advisable to draw a line across the country from say Dublin to Galway and then decide which half of the country you want to explore.

With this 10 days in Ireland itinerary, you’ll get to visit some of the popular attractions with tourists in addition to other, lesser-known ones.

This itinerary is geared toward the southern half of Ireland and includes attractions like Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, Waterford City, and more.
