As a proponent of constitutional rights, Geoffrey “Geoff” Scovil is also committed to defending people who are indigent in criminal cases. An attorney at law since 1998, he is currently working as a solo practitioner in Albuquerque. When not focusing on his work, Geoffrey Scovil leaves Albuquerque for periods to travel to different parts of the world. One of the places he has visited is Hong Kong, China.

About 236 islands make up the archipelago of Hong Kong, a large number of which are local and tourist favorites. Some of these islands are iconic, while others are lesser known. The most popular tourist spots tend to become crowded, especially during the peak season, so tourists may want to consider the following remote yet striking spots in Hong Kong.

1. Dragon’s Back – Its ridge-top path, looking much like the spine of a dragon, is considered a stunning hiking trail in Shek O Country Park.

2. Sai Wan Swimming Shed – This last surviving swimming shed on the westernmost part of the island has become quite popular with Instagram users.

3. Cape D’Aguilar Lighthouse – Built in 1875 on the southeastern tip of the island, the Cape D’Aguilar Lighthouse is one of five surviving prewar lighthouses, and the oldest in Hong Kong.
