Overview

Discovering Hong Kong’s greener side, these 25 walks guide you through rugged hills, forested valleys, reservoirs and waterfalls, temples and ageing villages, long abandoned forts and lonely islands. The length of each walk is listed at the beginning and an introduction describes its character. Details on accessing the walk are given, and the author’s commentary accompanied by his atmospheric photographs bring each one vividly to life. Detailed maps illustrate the route.The 25 Best Day Walks in Hong Kong by Dr Martin Williams is one of those seminal hiking books that I’ve been waiting for.- SK Shum, Founder and Organiser, Hong Kong Hiking MeetupHong Kong’s hyper-dense urban area is matched by areas of great wilderness, villages, mountains and long coastlines. Martin’s book allows you to discover the best Hong Kong has to offer at a moment’s notice, and return to urban life with renewed vigour and inspiration. With his photographer’s eye for details and decades of wandering the trails, The 25 Best Day Walks in Hong Kong is a must-bring guide to your next hike.- Paul Zimmerman, District Councillor and co-founder of Designing Hong Kong
