Today, we are going to have a really long virtual tour to Lamma Island the third largest island in Hong Kong where my babes and me hiked for 4 hours in flip flop. Oh gosh.
Wandering around Central area before catching our boat to Lamma Island with Dino, the HK friend who suggested us to switch our plan to Lamma Island from Lantau Island initially.
At present, there are two regular ferry routes, solely managed by Hong Kong & Kowloon Ferry Ltd., to Yung Shue Wan or Sok Khu Wan from Central on Hong Kong island.
Five of us will be heading on with around half and hour ride to Lamma Island via Yung Shue Wan route from Central. How thoughtful of the ferry company with this Braille map for visually impaired people.
Oh my god, thanks to Dino who brought us to this island with azure blue sky and leisurely conversation to the nature.
Compared to the fast-paced Hong Kong island, I actually prefer this laid-back island that reminds me of home.
Every single bit of the architecture.
Every single bit of life.
We managed to taste the famous local dessert, Eggette aka Kai Dan Zai as well. It is a kind of spherical pancake or ball waffle that is popular in Hong Kong, Macau and South India.
For the first stop, we are checking out wind power in action at Lamma Winds.
On our way.
The hot weather was def a killer in the afternoon. God blessed there was this Ah Por Beancurd Jelly 亚婆豆腐花 where we could grabbed a bowl of cooling taufufa.
Reaching Lamma Winds the green project in a bit.
Standing 71 metres tall, the 800kW wind turbine is Hong Kong's first and was built to provide a practical look at operating wind turbines.
And Tai Ling on Lamma Island was chosen for this installation owing to it is one the breeziest places in Hong Kong.
Walked along the walking trail.
We are now at second spot, Hung Shing Yeh Beach that is famous for its clean water and powdery sand.
And hey, meet Dino.
The breathtaking, sweeping coastal vistas.
Following the family walking trail, we are now at Hilltop Pavillion which offers the magnificent view of Lantau Island and Cheung Chau in distance.
The trail ends in Sok Khu Wan where we get to visit fishing villages and explore a 150-year old Tin Hau temple.
And the mango-flavoured Nestle drumstick that I kinda missing now.
Not forgetting our seafood dinner by the pier in our sweaty mood.
And no worries, this is a fishing boat and we not gonna back with it. Laugh. We gotta catch the ferry back to Aberdeen and here we bid goodbye to the fishing villages.
A bit at the down side on our way back despite the breezy evening and shiny moon in the clouds. Tired and a little lethargic; the things that outweigh.
A spot worth visiting if you are fond of non-typical Hong Kong shopping, food hunting trip. Really.
