7 most peaceful places in Hong Kong – Find the calm in the storm

Hong Kong is far from a sleepy town, it is one of the most dynamic and energetic cities in the world with people from all backgrounds going about their days in the hopes of learning, growing or gaining new business each day.

1

Check out Casphalt

What was once a school in the Tuen Mun, this complex has now been converted into a vegetarian-based café. It welcomes families as well as their pets with open arms as they look to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The space at Casphalt also maintains a steady stream of events and workshops set with the wonderfully lush surroundings of the building as a backdrop making it an ideal getaway during the weekends.

If you are staying at one of the Tsim Sha Tsui hotels such as the Park Hotel Hong Kong then you will take a thirty-minute drive to get to this stunning escape.

Head over to Long Ke Wan

There is no more ideal way to find some peace than by heading towards an uncrowded beach. While admittedly some of the beaches in Hong Kong can get quite crowded, the Long Ke Wan beach is simply stunning and has the added benefit of not being particularly busy.

The only catch is that to get to the beach you will need to take a drive to the east dam of High Island Reservoir and then take a 45-minute hike to get to your destination.

Visit Tai Mei Tuk

If you hop on a bike and head out from Sha Tin to Tai Po you will find yourself riding alongside a damn that will give you a clear view of the Tolo Harbour and Plover Cove. While this area can get a bit busy as well, if you head out during the early hours of the weekdays you will likely be able to enjoy the views without any disturbance.

Trek over to the Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir

While getting to this location will require some effort, the trek is certainly worth it. It is without a doubt one of the most peaceful places on the island. As you watch over the waters you will notice the Koi fish and turtles swimming and your worries are sure to simply melt away.

Experience Tap Mun

For those seeking a true escape from the crowds of Hong Kong, the best solution for you is to take the weekend to travel over to Tap Mun. With only 100 people living on this island, it is the epitome of serene and is sure to tick all the boxes for relaxation.

In order to reach this beautiful island, you will need to hop on board a small motorised ferry that will bring you to the little fishing village of Tap Mun.

If you are feeling like exploring, you can head out to visit the Tin Hau Temple and walk across the lush greenery that the island has to offer!
