Rhino Rock - A Short Windy Hike

The hike starts from Stanley barracks. With a steep 1km incline ( with broken steps). This leads you to the first point, here hoards of people are generally gathered taking pictures, which will make you think it's the Rhino rock, but it's not. We Must have stopped at atleast five different rock formations seeing the crowds queuing up for pictures, thinking its Rhino rock, but turned out it wasn't. And so onwards we went. As our hike continued, it got pretty cold, because we happened to go on a super windy day, which made it feel colder than it was. The only refuge form the wind were the narrow pathways between the tall plants craved out by the thousands of explorers before us. With peoples caps flying, my hair fraying and we thought of turning back, for the Rhino rock seemed to be hidden beyond our reach while we kept going around in circles.   It was just then we met someone coming back form that mysterious spot, his advice "follow the orange ribbon."  And thank

Art Lane, Sai Ying Pun

Located between the alleyways of Sai Ying Pun, One Art lane is not just an Instagramers must visit spot, but also a place to see artistic expression come to life.  These larger than life Graffitis can sometimes be easily missed while you walk engrossed in your phone. But more often than not, you will spot dozens of people posing in every corner.  What I love about the #Artlane is how the paintings are so diffrent and yet they blend together so well. From autumn leaves to boats floating on a stream painted in water colour effect to the realistic balconies painted below simple windows. From abstract forest on a yellow background to scenes form a distant galaxy, this place is definitely worth a visit.
