How was your sleep last night? In the morning, the local tour guide will pick you up at your hotel. Then we will start this one-day Lamma Island tour from Hong Kong.
First, we will go to the pier at Central district in Hong Kong, where we will take a ferry to Lamma Island, our final destination. And it will take us about half an hour to arrive at Sok Kwu Wan on Lamma Island. And it is also the starting point of this Hiking Tour from Hong Kong. Before we start this hiking journey, let me give you a brief introduction to this island. As the third largest island in Hong Kong, Lamma Island covers an area of about 13.55 square kilometers, second only to Lantau Island and Hong Kong Island. In the Tang (618-907) and Song (960-1279) Dynasties, this island was once the place where foreign ships berthed for trade in Guangzhou. So, this is a beautiful island with a long history. So, imagine how great it would be to hike on such a charming island.
What you need to know in advance is that we have arranged for you to have four stops on this journey. First, we will start from Sok Kwu Wan, a small but beautiful bay. When you come here, you will not only find many famous seafood restaurants but also a Tin Hau Temple with a history of 150 years. Then we will continue our journey and go to the second stop, the Goddess’ Palace. Actually, there are three Goddess’ Palaces on Lamma Island. In mythology, Goddess is the god of the sea. Legend has it that there was a merchant who went out to sea. However, when he encountered strong winds and waves, he was almost wiped out. When he was on the verge of despair, the wealthy businessman begged for the Goddess’ blessing. Then the Goddess appeared, and the wind and the waves all calmed down. The wealthy businessman secretly wished that when he came back, he must donate to build the “Goddess’ Palace” to show his gratitude. So, this is the origin of Goddess’ Palace. Next, we will hike to Hung Shing Yeh Beach. When you come here, you can enjoy the charm of the sea in Hong Kong. Strolling on the beach here, with the sea breeze blowing, you will feel relaxed and the fatigue you feel from the long hiking will disappear. Then we will arrive at Yung Shue Wan, the destination of this hiking tour. When you arrive here, our hiking tour will come to an end, and you will see many snack bars selling Chinese dim sum and Spanish tapas. So, you can choose to eat at a seafood restaurant or try the dim sum sold near the wharf. But no matter which one you choose, it will make you satisfied. After a little rest, we will take the ferry back to the pier in the Central district. Then the local tour guide will transfer you to the hotel. We believe that you must be tired after this one-day hiking tour. So, you can have a good rest.
