|Exploring the Mountainous Regions of Hong Kong Island
|The mountainous regions of Hong Kong Island are perfectly suitable for hiking, particularly Lung Fu Shan. Also known as Hill Above Belcher’s, it is a hill adjacent to the One-Eight-One Hotel. The walk is an easy 40-minute walk from Pok Fu Lam Road and is a favourite among morning joggers. For those who wish to travel outside Sai Ying Pun, Mount Parker is another popular spot for hiking.

|While it is relatively far away from our hotel in Sai Ying Pun, the East Coast Park Precinct is located near Fortress Hill and covers an area of 1.1 hectares, with a 425-metre seaside promenade. To get there, hop on the MTR and travel to Fortress Hill MTR Station, which is a 7-minute walk from Exit A.
There are many places there for visitors to take pictures, suitable for couples and families. The precinct sports a large lawn area, a colourful sports field, and the “Victoria Harbour” Word Art Installation, a perfect place for photos and a hot spot for pet owners to take their furry friends. In addition, the precinct’s biggest feature is the breakwater, allowing visitors to enjoy a 360° panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour.
|Sha Wan Drive
|Travelling further west of Sai Ying Pun, away from the hotel, is the Sha Wan trail, a path perfect for watching the beautiful Hong Kong sunset. Despite being in an urban area, Sha Wan Drive gives a natural seaside view among the mountainous areas of Hong Kong Island. The iconic Sandy Bay Swimming Shed, coastal rocks, seaside swings, and the stone beach are all popular spots on the trail. Despite its easy accessibility, it is usually uncrowded even in peak seasons. Take photos of backlit silhouettes here or take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery.

Start your walk from Pok Fu Lam Road and experience the beautiful nature. Indulge your senses in the serene woodlands of the Lung Fu Shan morning trail, and continue uphill to enjoy magnificent views across Victoria Harbour.
For those who strive to explore, Mount Parker is also a popular hiking route on Hong Kong Island. You can take the MTR from University or Sai Ying Pun Station to Quarry Bay Station, then walk along King's Road to the starting point of the Mount Parker Trail.
