When you like to see a different HK or it is a hot summer day this is the place to escape to. Take the ferry from Central at pier 4 to Lamma (Yung Sue Wan). Have lunch at the fantastic sea food restaurants and then walk over to the other side (Sok Kwu Wan) and take the ferry back from... More

We could not blame Lamma Island for the heat; it was bloody hot in Hong Kong, also. You take the Star Ferry to Hong Kong, make a right and get on the ferry to Yung Shue Wan. It's a charming little seaport with charming narrow streets serviced with cute narrow vehicles. We found a restaurant that had no English signs... More

When I arrived on a 30-45 minute ferry ride from Central, I was excited to get away from the crowds in Hong Kong. The place appeared quaint and bohemian. After walking around the island I began to get creeped out a bit. The restaurants looked very dirty and I would not trust the sanitary conditions of the food preparation. I... More

We started from Yung Shue Wan Village 榕樹灣村, and took us about 3 hours to reach Sok Kwu Wan 索罟灣, inclusive of a side trip to the Lamma Winds, and multiple break stops. It was a fairly easy walk, with lovely scenery, and definitely a good break from the bustling city. Remember sun block and lots of water though, as... More

While staying in Hong Kong we took a day trip from the busy Kowloon to this lovely island. I really enjoyed everything there. The walk to the Island's beach with lifeguards and all, weaves through the village with really cute, little houses and lush forest. There are a lot of restaurants at the jetty to choose from. Prices are quite... More

This is a slight off the beat tourist spot away from Hong Kong Island. If you like to see a little of modern fishing village or do a day hike this is a good location for a sight into local living. The seafood here is fresh from the sea. Prices are not the lowest but they are fresh and abundant.

This is the 3rd largest island in HK and the bohemian cousin of lantau, HK island and Macau. If you enjoy culture, nature and being more off the beaten track, this island is for you! It was very easy to get to, we walked from the MTR at Central station to piers.We walked down the wharf to pier 4 to... More

I liked every thing in this island! The ferry trip to reach it, the fact that it is small enough to walk from 1 ferry dock to another in the other side of the island, the beaches, the walking island , the relax feeling with nice small restaurants and cafes....
