Offering a rare but pastoral scene with many farmhouses and farms that produce a type of local cabbages, Hok Tau is a great place for family weekend trips.  The entrance of Hok Tau Country Trail is a neatly arranged area of plantations.  The opening section of the trail stretches across ridges that lead up to a lookout overlooking Hok Tau, Lung Yeuk Tau, and Fanling.  Along the ridges there are also many villages and village houses, with some fields, each having their own characteristics, open to visitors and filled with children’s cheers and laughter.  By the side of Hok Tau Village is a huge piece of farmland, which is sowed with papayas, bitter melons, and fruits and vegetables in season, and where various kinds of dragonflies are seen in summer.  Kids will no doubt have great fun identifying crops and insects.
