When M's parents were in town in December, we took them on the Dragon's Back hike, which I posted about last year. It was our 2nd time completing the hike and we enjoyed it even more than the first since we were in such great company.
The hike was much hillier than I remembered and the ground was uneven in several places. After selling my in-laws on a "leisurely" hike that was "easy" and "flat," I felt terrible when we hit some of the more difficult stretches. Everyone was a bit surprised by the difficulty... and rightfully so based on my description.

After the 2+ hour hike, you can reward yourself with a hearty lunch in Shek O. We recommend two lunch spots after the hike. The first is the Shek O Chinese & Thai restaurant which serves up better Thai food than we found in Thailand. We definitely recommend their tom yum soup and curries. Our 2nd recommendation is Black Sheep restaurant if you are in the mood for delicious Italian pizza, a difficult find in HK. We really enjoyed the mushroom pizza.
