Despite its nickname as a “concrete jungle,” Hong Kong actually has plenty of green spaces to relax, unwind, and escape the bustling streets be it hiking trails or country parks. With cooler weather expected to come soon, it’s time to make the most of Hong Kong’s green spaces and the lovely weather with a visit to these picnic spots.
Tamar Park and West Kowloon Promenade may be known as top al fresco choices in the city, but there’s also a caveat––they also tend to be packed with people. So ditch the crowds, pack your picnic basket and head to one of Hong Kong's lesser-known picnic spots for a peaceful day out in the sun.
