Lamma Island

Lamma Island, the third largest island in Hong Kong with a land area of about 14 square km, is situated 3 km off the southwest coast of Hong Kong Island. It is home to a highly diverse population of about 6,000 people, many of them of Western origins. There are regular ferry services between Lamma and Hong Kong Island. 

Sails of the centuries

One of my favourite places in Hong Kong is Aberdeen harbour. Sit along the promenade by the basketball courts and you can watch the sampans, ferries and other craft buzz in and out. Some of the sampans carry vegetables and noodles to feed other seafarers and some ferry passengers.
