Hoi Ha Wan is one of four protected marine parks in Hong Kong, renowned for its 60 types of hard coral and 120 species of coral fish. Venture out to the marine park via minibus 7 from Sai Kung Pier and rent kayaks and snorkelling gear from a shop in the tiny village of Hoi Ha when you get there. Once you’re there, you can really soak in the calming, clear waters and feel all your stress melt away.
It’s no secret that Hong Kong is one big stressful city. Just manoeuvring around in one of the world’s densest urban hubs can elevate anyone’s blood pressure. Not to mention, the challenging working hours and rising living costs. The list goes on for the things that fill Hongkongers with rage. If you’ve been complaining about these things at least once every hour, seems like you’re actually crying out for some quiet time. Thankfully, our beloved city has plenty of places, like the Hong Kong Victoria Peak Garden and scenic outlying islands like Tap Mun, where you can enjoy escaping the craziness for some peace of mind.
RECOMMENDED: If all else fails, there’s always booze. Drink your stress away at one of Hong Kong’s best bars.
