Escape to Lantau

image image

Lantau is the largest island of Hong Kong, yet it is sparsely populated. The only major development on the island is the new town of Tung Chung, next to the airport which is located just off the shore of Lantau.

The pace of life here is a lot slower than in the big city. Enjoy the views from the Ngong Ping 360 cable car, marvel at the beauty of the Big Buddha, or go dolphin watching in the waters off Tai O. Lantau offers it all, and it comes in a very efficient package.

A typical Lantau itinerary starts with a cable car ride to Ngong Ping, and a visit to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. After a walk through the old Ngong Ping village and nearby Lin Chi Monastery we take a bus down to Tai O, famous for its stilt houses. We take a walk between these stilt houses, to get a glimpse of life in this rustic fishing village, and visit the Kwan Tai temple which dates back well over 500 years. Tai O is also home to several great seafood restaurants, serving fish caught by local fishermen. It's hard to get it any fresher than that!

After lunch it's time to catch a bus to Mui Wo. The 40-minute ride takes you through woodlands, passes by the shore, and runs through various small villages. Mui Wo is a quiet commuter town, the outskirts of which are rural. Here small scale farms can be found, as well as old watchtowers and temples. It also features a beautiful beach.

Finally we take a ferry back to the Central, back to the husle and bustle of the big city.

New Territories and Islands

image image

The largest part of Hong Kong is the New Territories. Leased by the British government from China since 1898, this is the most traditional part of Hong Kong. Here one can still find walled villages and large ancestral halls. Old habits flourish, and many villages cherish their festivals.

Hundreds of islands can be found off the shore of Hong Kong, mostly uninhabited but some are home to communities large and small. The outlying islands with the largest population are Cheung Chau, Peng Chau and Lamma, smaller communities can be found in islands such as Tap Mun, Tung Lung Chau, Kat O, Ap Chau and Po Toi. The communities on the last three islands are counted in the dozens at most, and consist mostly of fishermen who simply never gave up their fishing way of life while most of the villagers moved to the city or overseas.

Tours to all these places can be organised. Most of the areas of the New Territories can be reached over land, most of the islands have public ferries available but some require private boat charter to visit.

The Hong Kong Global Geopark of China

image image

First inaugurated in 2009, the Hong Kong Geopark became Unesco listed in 2011 as it features worldwide unique landscapes and geology. The geopark is mostly known for the hexagonal volcanic rock columns that can be found in a wide area of Sai Kung Country Park, it also features a large area of red sedimentary rocks. This together makes Hong Kong's geology unique in the world.

Most of the Geopark is in coastal regions, and several of the main sights are located on offshore islands. The geopark can be accessed by boat or on foot, both having its advantages.

Geopark tours are mostly offered in the form of a boat tour, or a boat/hike combination. For more information on available itineraries, and also regular group tours, please visit www.adventuretours.hk.
