Having read good things about the island in various books and reviews we were looking forward to the trip. We had been tempted by the idea of a junk cruise but because of the price 550 hkd and the fact that you had to make your own way back from Stanley led us to the local ferry - good value at 16 hkd which is about £1.50. The trip which was about 30 minutes was pleasant but the harbour at Yung Shue Wan was very scruffy and uninteresting with the enormous power station chimneys poking up over the hill behind. . We had a very mediocre seafood lunch at the Sampan though pleasantly served and not eye-wateringly expensive. Though there is no car traffic, the locals race around on sort of quad trucks which are noisy and dangerous.
