Fjallraven Classic Goes Tropical in Hong Kong

  Encouraging more people to experience the outdoors has always been close to my heart ever since I started hiking back in 2015.

Backpackers – like my mates and I from UiTM Shah Alam Recreational Club comprising young mountain climbers – usually go for both so as to stretch our budget while experiencing what this impressive state has to offer.
