Island clean-up

I refer to the letter by M. A. Pitcher from Ascot, Berkshire, England headlined 'Dumping ground' (South China Morning Post, February 1), concerning the rubbish in Tung Lung Chau.

We agree with Mr Pitcher that Tung Lung Chau is a lovely island.

Down to basics in a remote hideaway

LOOKING for the great escape? A place where you can get away from it all, where the air is fresh and you can hike, fish, swim, even tackle a bit of rock climbing, and camp knowing you will not be disturbed by others.

You do not have to buy a plane ticket: Tung Lung Chau offers all of this - yet it is within sight of the tower blocks of busy Chai Wan.
