Easily one of the best parts of my hometown. When friends come to visit, this is where I take them to see a greener and lesser-known side of Hong Kong. The tourist magnets are Ocean Park, Repulse Bay and Stanley, but beyond these three places there is plenty more to explore. The avid hiker will love the island's mountainous interior, and sun-worshippers will delight in its string of beautiful beaches. For the culture vulture, there's a bustling fish market, colonial architecture and the annual dragon boat races in Stanley and Aberdeen.
