Hong Kong is well known for its famous tourist sites but during my 4 days in the Island, I got the opportunity to do other things and go beyond the beaten paths.

The first post will focus on the ‘must visit’ sites in Hong Kong and then I will describe in a second post some unusual places without huge amount of tourists and personal adventures.
