Hong Kong week: Monday - The Peak

This week I have dedicated to the city I live in - Hong Kong. Yesterday was a typical hazy day so that sometimes only the roof tops of the highest buildings could be spotted in the fog. We got on a taxi and went all the way up to the Peak (the highest mountain on Hong Kong island). There's a really great walkway around it's top. It's only a 10 minutes drive from the bustling city centre but when you get there you think you are walking in the jungle. It's all green with tropical plants all over. This is what I love about Hong Kong. Urban city life and nature are so close to each other. Hong Kong also has a large number of beautiful hiking paths not to mention all the little islands that surround it.
