Tai Tam Family Walk
Hiking trails in Hong Kong are an oasis of serenity in the urban jungle. Among them is Tai Tam Family Walk, one of the best places to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The family walk is easily accessible by public transport. To get to the starting point, walk from Hong Kong Parkview along Tai Tam Reservoir Road for 15 minutes. The middle section of the walk features many common plant species, including Don Blue Berry and Hong Kong Camellia. Towards the end are the picturesque vistas of the reservoir, which is a highly expected spot for photo taking among many visitors. The viewing point offers a picture-postcard scene, with a panoramic view of the Tai Tam Group, which comprises Tai Tam Upper Reservoir, Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir, Tai Tam Intermediate Reservoir, and Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir, and black kites flapping their wings in the air. Although the walk towards Tai Tam Reservoir Road may be a bit physically demanding, it is still worth it, as visitors will be rewarded with the chance to admire the British architectural style of the reservoir.
