During my stay in Hongkong I ventured out to the outer Islands. One in particular was Lamma Island. With no roads, or cars (except for what I would call a 3 wheeler with a ute tray that drive at high speeds along walking trails BEWARE !)
Lamma is a leafy green low – rise 13.6.sq Km island. Home to an estimated 5000 fisherfolk, Lamma is well known for its seafood restaurants which I can testify first hand as being some of the best seafood I have ever tasted, you select from the daily catch which is still alive to your plate ! I hiked the 4km trail from Yung Shue Wan to Soke Kwu Wan in 37 degree heat with 90% humidity !
It wasn’t a long hike by any means (3 hrs if you crawl) however the conditions were some what trying, maybe it was all the beers the night before ! The first image is from the ferry arriving at Yung Shue Wan and the second is the fishing village itself, Sok Kwu Wan and the dozen or so restaurants waiting with cold beer and seafood for weary travelers.Cheers Adrian
