This is absolutely a gem in Hong Kong. If you miss it, you miss a large part of Hong Kong. Take a boat ride from Sai Kung Pier and you won't regret.

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.

These are 3 different parts of China that are very far from each other. Yes it is doable by train if you just do these three regions. I can't think of what cuisine you wish to find in Turpan to justify going all the way there.
Mangrove or Island Tour? (2 Replies)
We are in Langkawi next month (family with older children aged 14 & 11). We'd like to do one of the more eco-friendly tours so I'm looking at those offered by Junglewalla. The Geopark Mangrove Cruise and Southern Island Geopark Tour both look attractive. Has anyone been on one or both of these? Are they very similar or completely different? Would anyone recommend one over the other? We aren't particularly interested in swimming in the sea but would like a tour where we see the natural...More

Hi I have never done a tour with Junglewalla but have done several with Dev's Adventure Tours, which is another eco-friendly company. Of the two, the mangrove tour is probably the most interesting and you should see lots of wildlife and scenic beauty.

What the weather like this weekend in Langkawi? (1 Replies)
I know that this kind of question is somehow boring but me and my group really want to know about how the weather like in Langkawi those days. We'll spend our holiday here from Apr 7th to Apr 10th and the weather forecast says that there will be rain/ thunderstorm everyday this occasion. Please let us know whether this could affect our plan to the Sky Bridge and Kilim Geopark. Thank you so much in advance :)

I am afraid that we cannot predict the weather for you between 7th to 10th April. It is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string..... There may be rain but probably lots of sun.
