New Territories Activities

What to Do in New Territories

There are many fun activities to pursue in the New Territories. If you are a fan of golf, pick one of the many golf clubs or driving ranges according to your budget and handicap.

Again, many people have a mental image of Hong Kong as the world centre of stress but just try hiking in the New Territories to experience another side of the Hong Kong life, where nature, culture and the rural life still exist in peaceful harmony. Slightly more stressful but still a lot of fun, horse racing – a local passion – is another colourful and exciting option.

Amah Rock

Amah Rock is a 15-metre-tall formation within the Lion Rock Country Park. It looks very similar to a woman ('Amah') carrying a baby on her back. Legend says that this woman was the faithful wife of a fisherman who climbed the hill every day, carrying her son, to watch for the return of her husband, not knowing he had been drowned at sea.

In reward for her faithfulness, she was turned into a rock by the Goddess of the Sea so that her spirit could unite with that of her husband. Amah Rock is another good spot to enjoy a bird's eye view of Sha Tin Town and the New Territories.
