Hong Kong is having many hiking trails and Dragon's back is an easy trail with a great view. It is an easy escape within the Honk Kong island itself and you will get a stunning view of Shek O beach from the top.

If you want to get away from the crowds and hectic pace of Central or TST try a few hours on the trails with amazing views of the sea below. The hike is not too difficult and any age can enjoy.

I believe its best to check the weather forecast nearing to your hiking date. Typhoon is not a norm, hence u shouldn't be too worried about that. But well, if it rains, definitely not advisable.
