Walking is a great way to find your way around some of the many districts of Hong Kong, and to find hidden gems and pleasant surprises. It is relatively safe here too, so in most parts of the region you will feel secure walking around.
Some parts of Hong Kong can be hilly, and the temperatures in the summer can make travel by foot uncomfortable. However, one of the fun things to do as a newcomer to Hong Kong is to start finding your way around the city using walkways below ground level, connecting buildings above level, and even jumping on the world’s longest escalator connecting the steeper streets of Hong Kong Central. Don’t be fooled by the heat in the summer too – you’ll want to remember your umbrella as rain can move in quickly and sometimes unexpectedly.
