Finding green in a concreate jungle

Hong Kong is hardly known for its green landscape. The blue (or now brown) harbour, the reflective surfaces of massive office towers, even the red lights of continuous traffic, green is hardly a colour that can easily be associated with Hong Kong. Unless the green is associated with gunk and other waste products that our waters are teeming with.

Thankfully, large swaths of Hong Kong is in fact government protected country park. But venturing out far is often a hassle and drags us away from our office filled lives too much. So why not go out and discover the trees and green landscapes that dot the city’s more built-up parts?

The Government’s produced a number of regional maps just for that purpose, identifying green landscapes and some old trees for your enjoyment in-between the report and the presentation. Check it out!
