Managed to see only the some parts of the Sai Kung Volcanic Region. Took the boat tour from the Volcano Discovery Centre at Sai Kung for 280 HKD. Lasted 3 hours. Scenery was great. Expect to see hexagonal columns, sea caves and arches.

Many people mistakenly think Hong Kong is all high rises and shopping - but you'd be wrong. It's worth spending the time to go the geopark and see the various rock natural formations and lovely blue/green waters. As many have pointed out, if you go...More
