If you want to do a bit of outdoor activity and treat yourself to a nice meal, this is how to spend a Sunday morning in Hong Kong:
Start at the bottom of Hatton Road (the west end of Conduit Road) and walk up the trail until you’ve reached a small park. Make a left and walk the longer part of the new trail that circles the peak. There, you’ll get a good look at Hong Kong (on a clear day, of course) from the south side of the city, which also overlooks the entire Kowloon. Continue walking until you hit The Peak Galleria and on your immediate right, is The Peak Lookout, a colonial-style building from the British days.
The walk should take about 45-50 minutes (depending on your pace), which isn’t much of a work out. On a hot day however, bring a towel because you’ll sweat alot! Hopefully, you should have worked out an appetite by then.
At The Peak Lookout, ask for a table outdoor (preferably under some shades) and order your drinks. Try their fresh lime soda; its is very refreshing.
Here, we had the Caesar Salad as appetizers. My folks got the Singaporean Fried Noodle and Lamb Chop with Curry and I felt like a Spaghetti Bolognese. I’ve had most of the stuff on their menu and I haven’t yet spotted anything that was bad. I’d say most of the stuff you order would be pretty decent. It really just comes down to what you feel like after you’ve sat down.
See! What a great excuse to indulge yourself with some good food and not feel guilty about it because you’ve worked out 🙂 Enjoy!
