Why it's worth it: 

HKwalls is a non-profit arts organisation that aims to create opportunities for local and international artists to showcase their talent in Hong Kong and internationally through the mediums of street art and street culture. We celebrate creativity, originality and freedom of expression; actively work on connecting and building relationships with artists, the community and organisations worldwide through high-quality public art, while making the creative process accessible to all.

HKwalls holds an annual street art festival in Hong Kong during Hong Kong’s art month each March, as well as year round programming that focuses on artists’ career development and raising awareness through the arts.


You can open the walking map I created that is in the header and just follow the path which will have you go through most of the street art pieces of HKWall2019. When we were walking it, some of the pieces weren't completed or even started. You will therefore have a chance to see even more!

Please, don't litter!

Hiking is about communion with nature. So please pickup after yourself. There's no excuse to leave plastic bags, water bottles or any rubbish on or around the trails; if you managed to bring it, you can manage to bring it back!
