This is a superb piece of public infrastructure that features separate walking, jogging and cycling tracks, lots of exercise areas/equipment, small gardens, toilet facilities and rest areas. It gets enormous use by the locals, and the occasional tourist. In the early morning and late afternoon it was relatively cool and breezy, but even in the later morning we found enough shade from the eastern sun from the trees and the high-rise buildings. In the full heat of the day it would no doubt be more challenging, but there are plenty of spots to rest – and the three MRT stations along the promenade are all close enough if you don’t feel like doing the full walk.
We were staying down in Sha Tin, which is a couple of kilometres further down the Shing Mun River. Although not of the standard of the promenade, there is still a perfectly serviceable riverside path that leads directly to its southern starting point. It’s a spectacular way to start the day, watching the river and harbour come to life and the many locals doing their morning exercises.
