Hanging out in Hang Hau

Hike Overview: Scoot Hong Kong! A great walk and scoot that was suggested by one of our lovely Mums from the group walks. Take the route along the waterfront, following car-free walkways and cycle paths, to a lovely park. A fabulous walk for pushing prams but also for toddlers that need safe space to run, wobble and scoot.  Paths are newly laid and smooth, however there are signs saying no skateboards (unsure of the rules on scooters) and fines for anything other than a bicycle on the cycle lane.  When we visited it was beautifully quiet and looked great for little ones on wheels.

 

  • Distance: 4km
  • Road Surface: Almost totally car free, flat paths.  There are also cycle lanes along the majority of the route.
  • Time taken: 1 hr plus playing time in the parks.

  • Shade: Exposed to start on the waterfront, shade on the end section and in the parks.

There’s a great skateboard park here for skater boys and girls.  It can get busy with older children so best take little ones to have a go at quieter times.
