Trip Description

This is a fairly leisure route. It is not too long but it embraces beautiful Saikung scenery. We visited this route during the season of blossom. Beautiful flowers like these spread all over the hill top. Its proximity to Pak Tam Chung bus stop make it a very ideal route for a refreshing afternoon.
