for Ho Lun ’s tour (Dragon's Back Hike)
First class gentleman. Very fit and knows his routes well. I definitely recommend Kowloon!

for Ho Lun ’s tour (Dragon's Back Hike)
Kowloon was such great company! My brother and I had a fantastic time hiking the Dragon's Back with him. Kowloon is very knowledgeable when it comes to HK's hiking trails, so definitely get in touch with him if you want to experience the area's great outdoors. We felt privileged that Kowloon took a day of annual leave from his full time job in order to hike with us. Thank you Kowloon, and if you ever come to London, let me know!
