Polluted, densely populated Hong Kong is unlikely to be on any trail runner’s bucket list. But, as this video by Robin Lee shows, there are some spectacular trails running through the many parks in and around the city.

Of course, don’t expect most days to be as gorgeous as the video portrays; as noted in the description, it took the filmmaker a year to gather enough footage of clear days to put together this four-minute film.
