Hong Kong is known for its vibrant city feel, its late-night crowd and its ultra-modern local scene. But did you know that Hong Kong is also rich in culture and heritage and that there are nature spots that are worth the trek? Read on to discover another side of the lively Hong Kong.
Nature and Scenic Spots
Behind the Hong Kong city attractions lies the natural and scenic spots that nature lovers will surely enjoy. Among the most beautiful places is the Nam Sang Wai scenic tree-lined path. The area is 100% relaxing.
Even city dwellers often come to visit this place to get away from the hustle and bustle once in a while. Truly worth the trek and the travel time. Tourists can arrange a half-day out-of-the-city tour with their preferred travel agency to see this place.

If you love walking around at night, whether it’s sampling street food or just taking a stroll before hitting the sack, this place has got a lot of things for you to see at night. The lively street food scene and the nightly light show are two of the most relaxing things you can do.
Do this to cap off a busy day of touring the islands of this beautiful country.

Climb the Peak
The Peak can be reached by road or by rail. However, if you want something out of the ordinary, take the tram. The tram ride is an experience in itself; watch the buildings as you ascend and experience the mind-blowing optical illusion.
This is where the buildings that line up the side of the mountain road appear to be standing sideways, and look like they’re almost about to fall. It’s a fun ride to the top that will test your vision and your brain’s ability to distinguish which way is up or down.
