To many visitors, Hong Kong is a concrete jungle with high rises everywhere.
Yes, it is true that it is a vertical city. But 70% of the territory is designated as Country Park or similar. So if you drive for about 30 minutes from the city, you will find a complete change in scenery – green views almost everywhere.
The photo is taken by my friend KF Chung in Fung Yuen, Tai Po in the New territories of Hong Kong.
Fung Yuen has 42 ha of natural reserve which is the bleeding ground of some 200 species of butterflies. In fact, the number of species increase due to global warming – some rare species are coming here from the tropical areas.
