Victoria Peak Garden is small but offers extensive Western and southern Hong Kong Island views, perfect for catching a breath of fresh air at altitude. You can access it via Mount Austin Road, which winds through the garden. This space was previously used as a summer residence providing expansive views for the governor of Hong Kong, but the building has since been demolished to make way for this park for the public to enjoy, full of lush trees, perfectly manicured bushes, and real green grass.
Hong Kong has some of the best greenery if you know where to look for it. So, when you're desperately in need of some fresh air or merely looking for inspiration for an afternoon stroll, the following list of parks might be right up your alley.
