The famous Dragon’s Back is not so much of a challenging hike, but still offers very good views and a decent walk. I’d say it’s more or a box-ticking-exercise, and there are better routes out in HK... but it does have its own charm still.... especially when you’ve had a tough week of work in Central.

Make sure you have a many hours to kill as this trail takes a while to finish. Definitely gives you a good workout and great views of Hong Kong. Also make sure you bring lots of water to keep hydrated since there's nowhere to buy water during the trek. Wear some decent and comfortable runners before you go. Wrong shoes will have a chance to give you blisters as what happened to a friend who didn't listen. A good choice for a hike when you feel you are in the mood.

One of Hong Kong's iconic hikes, the Dragon's Back is a pretty easy hike that takes around 2.5 to 3 hours depending where you start and which beach you finish on. The climbs are all pretty easy. I'd recommend finishing off on Shek O beach with lunch (or dinner) at the lovely Cococabana restaurant. (ps. do take plenty of water - there is nowhere to top up once you're on the trail)

Dragons Back is a must do hike in Hong Kong. The view is breathtaking. To get here, you take the Chai Wan Line To the starting point: From MTR Shau Kei Wan Station Exit A, walk to the Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus to take bus number 9 and get off on the Dragons Back stop on Shek O Road. Before you start the hike there are a couple of toilets and you wont find any along the way until the end. It takes a couple of hours and you have shorter hike options too

This hike/trail is nice but it’s seriously over rated. Get the number 9 bus from Shau Kei Wan to Tei Wan. Then the trail starts. Steps, rocks, very dangerous at points. Good views from the top but that’s it. Wear the right footwear. This hike would be extremely dangerous when it’s raining and the rocks were wet when I went and I almost slipped and broke my ankle on quite a few occasions. You can go to Big Wave Bay if you are brave enough to do some rock climbing downwards. Be careful and enjoy.
