About Us

In January 2016, Drone and Phone published its first episode, Hiking the Dragon’s Back. The concept was simple, to make five short videos of the best hikes in Hong Kong using a Drone and a Phone to record the journeys.

Six years on and we have now created more than 500 videos of adventure, endurance and dedication from all over the world.

This website is designed as a reference tool to find activities for all the family around the region. While the focus has been on Hong Kong outdoor activities that can be done within a day, we now also have expanding sections on destinations in the Chinese Mailand and around Asia. Here you will find places you can reach with a short flight where there are lots of activities to explore.

OUR TEAM

We have DJ Clark, Jack Yao and Robert Hope-Jones, plus many great reporters like George Chan and Chloe Feng who have since moved on to other things. We are united by our love of the outdoors, with a little adventure thrown into the mix. Below are the three reporters currently on our team.
