I'm off on a work trip next week with a view to have some free time on the last day (saturday) i fly out (late departure).
i've been told that HK is good for mountain biking.
Has anyone done this before? some pointers would be nice - would love to get a chance at doing something i love out in somewhere like HK!
also, if anyone knows of anything else worth doing in a day while i'm there, i'm all for alternatives
has to be do-able in a day with time to get back to the airport for my flight!
On one of the days I was there, I did a trip to Lantau Island, there's a mahoosive cable car ride, you get to go to some Buddhist temples, and see the giant bronze buddha. Think that was half a day - but took a good few hours, really. Got to see quite a bit, and various parts of the culture, plus there was a bit of time in one of the fishing villages.
Didn't have a bike with me, though, so can't comment on any cycling or paths there.
There's various places people will rave about - Causeway bay, other areas for either eating or shopping - but neither, really, are big interests for me, personally. HK always seemed very busy, but really seems to come alive at night. I didn't see much of Kowloon, though, I stayed on Hong Kong Island.
