Wan Chai Gap Road
Best for: Killer calves and views of Hong Kong's signature skyline.
Short but steep, this trail takes you from the metropolis' soaring skyscrapers to foliage-filled corridors and rock formations shrouded in folklore. Start at Hong Kong's oldest surviving post office, step inside to gaze at the retro post boxes and pick up a walking map. Continue on the trail uphill as it traces a steep stream until you reach a water fountain on the junction with Bowen Road. You have two options here: turn left to reach Lovers' Rock, a phallic stone which women visit to increase fertility or in hope of finding a husband, or carry on uphill to complete the trail. Get snap happy here; the city skyline views are impressive.
How to get there: Jump on board buses 6, 10 or 15 from Central and alight at Wan Chai Market.
