Let's run!

At first glance, Hong Kong seems like any other concrete jungle with its sky-high buildings and crowded pavements. Running outside seems almost like an impossible task, with all the people and cars getting in the way every few minutes. Despite all that, Hong Kong actually has a few decent running spots, which are good enough to satisfy the outdoor junkie! Here are our top 5 picks:
