We often love to complain about the size of Hong Kong. But this city’s small square footage provides easy accessibility to some amazing sights, including Pineapple Hill, aka the mini Grand Canyon of Hong Kong. The natural structure can be found within walking distance from Leung King Estate. Located between Castle Peak and Kau Keng Hill, this hill continues to evolve in shape, with nature creating more interesting ridges to this landmark each year. It’s no wonder Pineapple Hill is frequented by Instagrammers. But be sure to tread carefully when visiting this mountain, as the ground is extremely slippery.
When asked about Tuen Mun, Hongkongers often say that the area is too remote, has too much traffic or is simply an ordinary public housing estate with no character. Well, we’re here to prove them wrong. Nowadays, courtesy of newly-built tourist destination V City, the neighbourhood has been gaining new interest from locals and tourists alike. With dramatic, scenic mountains like Pineapple Hill, independent cafés like Hidden Coffee & Roasters and cool community-oriented spots like second-hand furniture store 2nd Chance, there’s more than meets the eye in the greater north-western area of Hong Kong. Here are some of the best things to do in Tuen Mun. By Elaine Lok
RECOMMENDED: Aside from V City, there are tons of other amazing mega shopping malls in Hong Kong and Kowloon.
