Mount Tagapo Day Hike

Five days ago I agreed to go on a hike to Mount Tagapo with a friend, yesterday supposedly because it was a holiday. But a day before that I backed out.  I am not the type of person who backs out on a trip. I actually always end up going alone because it’s the others […]

A week before my trip to Hong Kong, two of my friends suggested that I include the Tian Tan Buddha (also known as the Big Buddha) in my itinerary. While browsing the internet for information on how to get there, I found one blog post about getting to the Big Buddha by hiking the Lantau […]

I didn’t know that it is a good hiking destination until I stumbled upon a post about the 8 best trails to hike in Hong Kong. Reading it […]
