Dragon's Back outings

Perhaps the finest short hike in Hong Kong runs up and along the ridge known as Dragon’s Back, which forms the spine of the southeast headland of Hong Kong Island. Coupled with a visit to the eccentric coastal village of Shek O, this makes for an excellent rural outing, at once near yet far from the city.
