Photo Essay: Shek-O

This is one of my favourite places in Hong Kong, which is particularly apt as I only go there at the end of my favourite hiking trail - the Dragon's Back.  Shek-O (literal translation: Rocky Bay) is a sleepy fishing village perched on a peninsula on the south-eastern part of Hong Kong.  During the summer, it's packed with locals, expats and tourists when they flock by the dozens to the public sandy beach for all-day sun-and-surf frolicking and BBQ parties  Best to avoid it during that entire season and instead plan a visit during the winter months, when the mood is more subdued and the village has (more often than not) dramatic overcast overtones that lend a distinctly retro-nostalgia glow to its rustic weather-beaten surroundings.

Here are some of my own visual memories of Shek-O and the Dragon Back hiking trail.
