Not entirely correct though. Especially when you're heading to Hongkong for a summer vacay, since the weather tend to be extremely hot and humid with frequent thunderstorms and occasional typhoon. Yikes!
💩 got real when the flight was rescheduled due to super typhoon Mangkhut. By that time, I almost dropped the options of exploring the great outdoors of Hongkong as planned.
However after gathering much needed information from the local news, there's still hope since some of the places were not entirely ruined by Mangkhut.
And here's one of those: 🏞: The Crouching Dragon River, Yellow Dragon Stream, Lantau Island, Hongkong 🇭🇰
Surprisingly, most part of the yellowish rocky riverbeds remained unaffected. Both the water amd the sky was so clear that we managed to reach the end of the hike trail.
Yep! We -me and these two lovely local ladyhikers- whom I met at the starting point of the hike trail 😬
Despite the typhoon, it turned out to be one of my most memorable exploration ever, on this exact month last year!
Thinking it over, it felt like getting a surprise birthday present from @tiketcom , except that the birthday guy, is the one giving the gift 😂
Have a grEight #UltimEight birthday on this #BulanAntiGalau , @tiketcom !
