For a truly off-the-beaten-path picnic experience, head to Plover Cove Reservoir. This stunning location is surrounded by lush hills and has plenty of space for a group picnic, or a solo-life-philosophical one! Don't forget to bring your camera – the views are Instagram-worthy!
Located in the heart of Tuen Mun, Jockey Club New Life Farm is a sustainable farming community with beautiful gardens and a peaceful picnic area. Even better, they provide training and employment opportunities for people in recovery of mental illness. Bring your own food or buy some fresh produce from the farm and enjoy a farm-to-table picnic experience right there in the city.
7. Clear Water Bay Country Park
We all love a Clear Water Bay day, and this expansive park in the New Territories offers a wide range of picnic areas, from grassy lawns to rocky beaches. The park is also home to several hiking trails, so you can work up an appetite before settling down for a picnic and a Dragon Water refresh and revive.
This one goes out to the introverts out there! If you're looking for a peaceful and secluded picnic spot, Lung Fu Shan Country Park is the perfect choice. Tucked away in the heart of Hong Kong Island, it offers next-level views of the city skyline, lush greenery, and a quiet spot for contemplating and rejuvenation in nature.
Get into that emerging spring weather with some delicious food, a Dragon Water or five, throw in a can of Double Haven Lager for good measure, and picnic crawl your way about Hong Kong this long weekend.
We wish you peace for yesterday's Ching Ming Festival, and happiness and joy this upcoming Easter.
