sight-seeing: lamma island


Lamma Island is situated three kilometers off the south west coast of Hong Kong Island. This is island is Hong Kong's third largest island.

To get there, take a ferry from Central Pier 4 on Hong Kong Island or from Aberdeen on the south side of Hong Kong Island. From Central Pier 4, there are separate ferry services to both Yung Shue Wan (27 minutes journey) and Sok Kwu Wan (30/40 minutes journey). For this trip, I took a ferry from Central Pier 4 to Yung Shue Wan.  

I did the popular family trail across the island that connects the two largest villages; Yung Shue Wan in the north and Sok Kwu Wan in the south. This is a three kilometres trail which is along concrete paths all the way.

From Yung Shue Wan, take the path around the harbour side and through the congested street lined with seafood restaurants and small shops. Let the journey begins...

End the trip with a nice treat of seafood before departing the island. Enjoy scrumptious seafood whilst enjoy the nice seaview from water front seafood restaurants. What an enjoyable day, don't you think?
