The moon becomes bigger?!?!?

Posted on 10th Sep 2015 under Eco

Mid Autumn Festival (or called “Lantern Festival”) is coming up on 27th September 2015 (the 28th is the public holiday after it!). Local people like to gather with family and friends enjoying the moonlight.

The god brings us a special gift at our Mid Autumn Fest this year. We will see the “Super Moon” which is 7% bigger than what we normally see. This is the biggest moonlight since 1997.

Explained by the scientist in the Observatory, the moon surrounds the earth with oval track. When it moves to the closest distance with the Earth, we will feel the moon is bigger visually.

 

Shall we take this chance to raise up our heads and enjoy it!

Tamar Park, Urban Park in Admiralty

Posted on 24th Apr 2015 under Eco

Tamar Park

 

Tamar Park is one of the urban parks in Hong Kong with 17000 sq. meters at Admiralty.  It occupies nearly 80% of the site. It connects to the Central Government Complex and the Legislative Council Complex and Admiralty MTR.

The park opened at 2011 with the concept of ‘perpetual green’. Thus, there are full of greenery in the park. Unlike other parks in Hong Kong, the lawn there is free to walk through or lie down. With the great view of Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon, the park has been an attractive leisure space to the locals. Especially during the holidays, numbers of visitors will enjoy their picnic or sunbathe there.

Recently, some visitors found that the park is a fabulous place for photography. Utilizing the marble bench in the park, it will become a mirror to reflect the sky and the scenery. No matter in a sunny or night, it brings out an inverted image of the city.

It will be a nice place to read a book. And enjoy an oasis in the city.

Exploring the great outdoors might not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a tour in Hong Kong. In fact, hiking in Hong Kong is possibly the city's most popular hidden activity for all ages of people. There are great variety of hiking routes in town which will definitely lead you away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Let’s see some popular hike itinerary recommendations below.

 

1.    Dragon’s Back

Dragon’s Back, with a view overlooking Tathong Channel, was considered the “Best Urban Hike in Asia” by Time Magazine in 2004. It is lying in the southeastern part of Hong Kong Island, is easily accessible by public transport. It is a scenic route without skyscrapers blocking the view on the ridge and it involves a relaxed walk under shade at the later part, making it a perfect trail for novice hiker.

 

2.    Lantau Peak

Lantau Peak, literally meaning Phoenix Hill, is the second highest peak in Hong Kong after Tai Mo Shan. The hill comprises two peaks, which are usually shrouded in clouds. As the vantage on top offers panoramic views and is accessible by Lantau Trail, Lantau Peak attracts lots of visitors climbing up for watching sunrise.

 

3.    Tai Long Wan

Tai Long Wan, literally meaning Big Wave Bay, lies in the east coast of Sai Kung peninsula. Carved by the waves of Pacific Ocean, it comprises four sandy beaches, namely Sai Wan, Ham Tin Wan, Tai Wan and Tung Wan. Tai Long Wan is renowned for its majestic view and the exceptional quality of its beaches. It is considered the “The backyard of Hong Kong”

 

In fact, there are plenty of resources available online for hiking in Hong Kong, such as the official Hong Kong Tourism Board website for outdoor adventures, including tips for the Geopark, the Wetlands and various hiking trails.
