If you’re fed up with staring at yet another Prada bag, in Hong Kong there are places to escape to that are devoid of concrete slabs and airconditioning. And you don’t even have to go very far, because Hong Kong is only 1,078 square kilometers, comprising Hong Kong Island (77.5 square kilometres); Kowloon (45.5 square kilometres); and the New Territories, including 235 outlying islands (955 square kilometres).
