Ship your bike to Hong Kong
Hong Kong has some superb cycling routes. Beginning along the Shing Mun river, the Tai Wai to Tai Po pathway runs through the Hong Kong Science Park and past the Pak Shek Kok Promenade making it the city’s most scenic cycling route. Alternatively, the Tai Po to Tai Mei Tuk route, in the shadow of the Tsz Shan Monastery, sweeps along the waterfront passing the 17th century Tai Wong Yeh temple. For mountain bike trailists, the 25km Peak to Shek route traverses the Dragon’s Back, a cliff on the D’Aguilar Peninsula that resembles the mythical creature’s backbone.
Ship your golfing gear to Hong Kong
There are several courses in Hong Kong. The historical Hong Kong Golf Club was founded in 1889 by the British, placing it in the top 100 of the oldest clubs in the world. Along side the three courses at the Hong Kong Golf Club there are eight alternative courses in Hong Kong, including Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau in the northeast, Clearwater Bay in the east, and Discovery Bay in the west. Luggage Mule can ship your golf gear to anywhere in Hong Kong at reasonable rates with a reliable service, giving you the chance to enjoy these tremendous courses with your own clubs.
What to ship home from Hong Kong
There are many souvenirs you’ll want to bring home from Hong Kong. Traditional tea such as pu’er, jasmine, or oolong sell well from tea stores and traditional markets. For a piece of culture, purchase an oriental vase from Yue Hwa or Tsim Sha Tsui or a jade sculpture from the Shanghai Museum of Arts and Crafts. Custom-made traditional clothing is another drawer such as the cheongsam or qipao dress popularised in the west by Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman. If you’re planning to bring back gifts, don’t settle for single items – with a generous 30kg allowance, our luggage shipping service allows you to buy multiple purchases and have them delivered right to your door.
