Hong Kong: Neighborhoods


The New Territories

With rustic villages, incense-filled temples, green hiking trails, and pristine beaches, the New Territories are another favorite Hong Kong getaway. Until a generation ago, the region was mostly farmland. Sha Tin, Tuen Mun, and other "new towns" now house more than 500,000 residents apiece and can seem like other parts of Hong Kong. Even so, the region spreads over an expansive 518 square km (200 square miles), and it's still easy to get away from urban congestion and visit lush parks and glimpse traditional rural life in restored walled villages and ancestral clan halls.
