Think of beaches on Hong Kong Island, and I guess you first picture beaches with main roads right beside them – Repulse Bay, Deep Water Bay, even Stanley. They’re fine if you just want to drive up or hop off…
The Zoological and Botanical Gardens is one of the loveliest outdoor places within urban Hong Kong.
Victoria Peak is a great place to walk paths with fabulous views.
Best known for its market, Stanley is a pleasant place for strolling around, with highlights including a temple and a small beach.
