When the city turns into a never-ending sauna, that’s our cue to escape to the breezier countryside. Best of all, our SAR boasts more than 260 outlying islands, so there’s really no excuse not to take advantage of our amazing island life. Top of the list is Tung Ping Chau (reached by ferry from Ma Liu Shui Pier), an island formed from sedimentary rock that created its renowned multi-layered landforms. Do your best imitation of a geologist and spend the day marvelling at spectacular formations like Kang Lau Shek and Lung Lok Shui before setting up camp at the island campsite, which comes equipped with barbecue pits and dry toilets. But let’s be honest, not all of us can be bothered with the whole tent construction thing. That’s why we have glamping. Cheung Chau’s Sai Yuen Farm happens to be an 11-acre outdoor glamping site featuring themed camping experiences including a Native American teepee and a ‘Star Gazing Geodesic Dome’. Sai Yuen has also got it covered with folding beds and sleeping bags, lighting and mosquito nets. Prices start from $800.
