From City To Country By Garage Society

Having relocated back to HK for a little over a year now, I have to say… I am rediscovering Hong Kong’s beauty. Growing up in Hong Kong, like most kids of my generation, I didn’t get to enjoy much outdoorsy activities due to heavy schoolwork. Now that I am a working adult, I am even more so experiencing the never-stopping pace of the big city. As much as I love the city’s hustle and bustle, I yearn for tranquility and peace from time to time.

Hong Kong City

Recently I joined a few friends and also some of our Garagers to go on hikes around the city. To my surprise, I can actually get away from the concrete jungle and find myself on an isolated beach or forest in just a train/ferry ride away!  It is not only a great way to get some exercise but also to get closer to the nature and take in the stunning scenery.

If you ever get tired of the city buzz, put hiking excursions in your weekend plans! Rediscover Hong Kong and at the same time rejuvenate your body and soul!
