Out and about

The rugged beauty of Sai Kung - with its grassy hillsides, remote rocky headlands, deserted beaches and dozens of islands - is one of Hong Kong's greatest recreational assets. And though it can be crowded on the weekends, during the week one can easily hike all day and not see anyone else.

Out and about

Far removed from Hong Kong's dense urban conurbation, yet just beyond Sai Kung's hills, lie some of the New Territories' great delights - the deserted South Pacific-like beaches at Tai Long Wan and the rugged, grassy, spectacularly beautiful mountain ranges that surround Sharp Peak.

Injured Sai Kung hikers airlifted

Rescuers took about seven hours to find two injured hikers lost in Sai Kung Country Park. The search began about 7pm on Sunday after a 38-year-old man rang police, saying he and a 29-year-old woman were injured and lost in the park. The couple set off on a walk in the afternoon from Wong Shek Pier but the woman slid down a slope and sustained minor injuries to her legs.

HK and world on edge of catastrophe

It was interesting and a little reassuring to read your editorial of April 20, concerning healthy eating.

However, if the object of the editorial was to be realistic then serious government action needs to be taken immediately.

I took a trip during a weekend last month, with my wife on the ferry from Wong Shek Pier to Tap Mun Island in the New Territories.

Body in bag found at sea

A BUILDING worker discovered a body in a travel bag he dragged to shore at Wong Shek Pier, Sai Kung, yesterday.

Lam Wan-chiu, 20, was waiting for a ferry to Tap Mun when he saw a bag floating in the water near the shore just after 10 am.

A ghost island comes to life

AS I walk off the ferry pier, I see a notice: ''Passengers are advised not to visit the outlying islands unless they have checked in advance that a reliable means of return transport is available.'' Sound though the advice may be, it is, I fear, too late - I am already on Ping Chau, and Hongkong's islands do not come any more outlying than this.
