Join Janet Fong for forest bathing in Hong Kong

It may be known as a concrete jungle, but Hong Kong is about to welcome a little ‘forest bathing’ amongst its soaring high-rise.

Such is the popularity of the Japanese tradition of Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, it is practised the world over. And next month it will be coming to Hong Kong’s Kai Tak waterfront.

Soaking up the atmosphere of a forest and embracing nature is believed to calm stress and anxiety. Surrounding yourself with trees and greenery and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of a natural environment can promote balance within body, mind and soul, relieving the stresses of urban living.

One June 5, a team from The Pavilia Forest residential development will be hosting an exclusive forest bathing experience on Kai Tak Waterfront Promenade. Members of the public are invited to let go of their stress, stimulate their senses and reconnect with nature. The event marks the launch of The Pavilia Forest, a waterfront residential project that incorporates forest bathing design into its design concept. The forest bathing experience will be led by Janet Fong, a certified yoga instructor and forest therapy guide. 

The Pavilia Forest is part of New World Development’s Pavilia Collection residences on what was once Hong Kong’s airport. Much emphasis has been placed on green space throughout the new development and the Kai Tak area incorporates a sky garden with more than 80 species of plants, grassy plazas, water features and manicured lawns, as well as multiple parks for children to enjoy.

Head over on June 5 and let Fong guide you through an engaging interaction with the natural environment, letting go of the pressures of daily life, awakening the senses and harnessing the power of nature to calm the soul.

Kai Tak Waterfront Promenade, 4 to 5pm, June 5, head online for further details or to register.
