My first solo trip happened to be in the beautiful island city of Hong Kong.
I took an MTR (metro) from the airport to Sai Ying Pun, where my hotel was located. As soon as the train left the territory of airport, I was astonished to see the skyscrapers. I immediately recalled that I am in one of the most populous cities in the world. For a while, I changed my focus to look at the people travelling with me in the train and surprisingly, no body was looking at me. Its funny how we, Indians, find it unusual.
I was alarmed while booking the hotel that room sizes in Hong Kong are very small. I still found it to be very decent; probably because I was going to stay alone. I had a plan for each and every day I was there. So without wasting much time, I took some necessary stuff like a cap, a sunscreen, a rain coat and a bottle of water in a bag and left the hotel.
I was little scared and more thrilled to finish all the three treks I had identified for myself.
I decided to start with "Dragon's back" as it was simplest of all. It is part of Hong Kong Trail Section 8. Having spent last 15 days researching on the treks, I had a pretty clear idea of the route.
