Kick off the new year with a journey of discovery! iDiscover, TrailWatch, and Designing Hong Kong are inviting keen hikers, explorers, photographers, heritage enthusiasts and everyone in between to join the Hong Kong Island Coastal Trail Challenge 2022, taking place from 1 January to 6 February 2022.
Connecting known routes, small paths and lost trails, the Hong Kong Island Coastal Trail is a community-created walking route circumnavigating Hong Kong Island’s coastline. The 65-kilometre trail is divided into eight stages, from easy to moderate in difficulty, and has something for everyone to enjoy—from steep, remote mountain climbs to flat urban harbourside walks.
This year, participants are encouraged to solve 35 clues and take photos along the way to win amazing prizes from sustainable Hong Kong brands, including health screen packages from Gleneagles Hospital, Bamboa shopping vouchers, lululemon hiking kits, and more. Participants can take part in teams of two to five, and walk stages of the trail at their own convenience using the Trailwatch App to navigate and track their progress. Participation is free of charge.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
