About the trip

Our two-day adventure in Hong Kong is designed for anyone stopping over in the region, whether you’re rounding off a business trip, breaking up a long-haul flight or bolting it onto another escape.

From mist-clad peaks to designer shopping malls and an evocative harbour, Hong Kong is an explorer’s paradise. We’ll start by grabbing a flavour of the city’s eclectic foodie scene, with a guided amble through neighbourhood café and pop-up hawker stalls. From puffy egg waffles to bo zai fan, locals here love their food, and we’ll veer right off the tourist trail to understand why.

Then we’ll take The Dragon’s Back trail, a remote coastal trek with spectacular views out to the South China Sea. Our finale comes with boozy night cruise around Hong Kong harbour, under the beams of the Symphony of Lights. The perfect micro escape packed into two dazzling days, with like-minded travellers for company.

Flashpackers, who’s game?

The Flash Pack Promise

Here at Flash Pack, we’re committed to unique adventures that deliver great value for money. We pack our trips with epic experiences (unlike other companies, all activities are included), hand-pick stylish hotels and match you with like-minded people.


Day 1

Eat your heart out

Welcome to Hong Kong! Make your own way to the city from the airport using the super-easy MTR metro. We’ll meet at 5pm for a street food safari; a chance to hunt down the city’s best-kept culinary secrets and see what makes the locals tick. We’ll begin in Wan Chai street market, where we’ll tuck into puffy egg waffles and try the sweet “milky tea” that is the staple of Hong Kong’s age-old café culture. Next, we’ll hop on an iconic double-decker tram to Central District for Cantonese clay pot rice cooked over a charcoal fire, with toppings such as pork ribs, black beans or salted fish. A quick stop for golden fried churros, then we’ll belly up at a dai pai dong, where your guide will help you order anything from wok-fried oysters to spiced curry fish balls from the Cantonese menu. Get the Tsing Tao beers in and toast to real Hong Kong.

Day 2

Urban hikes and city lights

Today we’ll take a ramble along the Dragon’s Back Trail, an 8.5-kilometre trek through bamboo groves and remote coastline on the southeast corner of Hong Kong Island. This beloved route meanders along a spinal ridge that emulates the shape of a dragon to Shek O Peninsula, where a 284 metre-high viewing platform looks out to the South China and nearby islands. When we’re done, take the MTR back to Central, or spend more time wandering the pretty fishing village of Shek O. We’ll regroup at the hotel in the early evening, and hop on over to Kowloon to amble around the waterfront Tsim Sha Tsui district, with its neon lights and mini-malls. Then it’s time to catch a boat around Hong Kong harbour and watch A Symphony of Lights, the city’s nightly laser show. See the skyline come alive with colourful illuminations in a quintessential Hong Kong experience, with unlimited on-board booze.

Day 3

Cheerio, land of plenty

After a whirlwind few days, it’s time to say farewell to your Flashpackers in this city of delights. If you’re staying on here for a bit, bounce on over to the Mid-Levels, where hip boutiques, antique stores and art galleries await. Hop aboard a traditional junk boat and sail to Stanley, with its picturesque beach, or take a ferry back to Kowloon to shop bargain designer good markets. Whatever you do next, let the charms of Hong Kong live strong within you after our short but sweet foray. We’ve sent out taste buds flying with a ream of Cantonese delicacies, and shrugged off the tourists in a land of dai pai dongs. We’ve savoured the pace of Central and Causeway Bay, before hitting the wilderness for a dragon-worthy trek of dazzling greenery. And we’ve sailed around Hong Kong harbour to watch the night sky come alive in a chorus of lights. Hong Kong, we salute you!
