Hong Kong Trip

We recently went down south and spent a couple of days in Hong Kong and Guangzhou. It was nice to get away from the cold of Beijing for a bit.

While in Hong Kong we went on a much needed hiking trip. We started our trip at an organic strawberry farm where we were able to pick strawberries.

Searching for Strawberries

Towards the end of our hike we came upon this abandoned village.
Sha Lo Tung abandoned village

Random restaurant we found in Sha Lo Tung

It wasn't completely abandoned, we found this small family owned restaurant hidden away. We had a tasty lunch and explored a bit.

While exploring we found this random picture of an old man inside one of the buildings. It seemed like everyone left in a hurry when they left the village because there were still dishes, furniture, and clothes left behind.

Headed back to the city. The thing I really liked about Hong Kong is how close hiking areas are to the city but how secluded they are. It was a very nice, peaceful, and clean hike.

If you want to visit this spot I highly recommend going. You can visit the following blog to get more information and directions on how to find this place

Asian people are funny, they like to cart their dogs around in peculiar ways, I always see similar things in Beijing.
