“Though we have more greenery than urban areas in Hong Kong, those who live in the city centre often forget how to wind down,” he says. “But you don’t have to do much… just go into nature and let it take care of you.” He likens the experience to taking a detoxing bath to cleanse mind and soul.
Tsang sometimes uses his singing bowls to mimic running water. “The bowl is always vibrating,” he says, like water, it flows and leads you down a path. But the bowl is also very susceptible to temperature changes, which alters sound quality. Made from copper and tin, the singing bowl is assembled from minerals and shaped through high heat; helping it generate many frequencies and variations of ‘overtones’.
Follow the craggy shores of Hong Kong Island, which face out to the wide expanse of the South China Sea. Even on windless days, swells roll in and crash against the shore — the most spectacular cymbals in Mother Nature’s orchestra.
A tough but rewarding hike with some of the most stunning mountain and sea views around, not to mention spectacular beaches!
