Hong Kong's Lamma Island and Cheung Chau

When Hong Kong is mentioned the pictures that come to mind may be of its intense urban density. However, Hong Kong does have some areas that are less developed and maintain a significant amount of nature. During two recent weekends I visited two of Hong Kong's "outlying" islands -- Lamma Island and Cheung Chau. Both an easy ferry ride from Hong Kong Island, they provided a welcomed change of pace. For me, the most enjoyable part was hiking their nature trails with a friend.

Here are some photos from the very enjoyable days I spent on Lamma Island and Cheung Chau:

Plenty of dried fish for sale

If dried fish isn't your thing then maybe some organic cider from the UK will do the trick.

I think a basketball fan lives here.
