It's finally colder in Hong Kong which means it's finally the perfect weather to start the outdoor adventures! Lamma Island is one of the outlying islands around the city that's less than an hour away by ferry. Here is our suggested itinerary if you're down for an easy hike away from the city:
1. Ah Por Tofu Fa
We suggest taking the ferry from Central to Yung Shue Wan as the ferries for this route is more frequent. Upon docking, walk towards Yung Shue Wan Main Street (or just follow the crowd) and then follow the signs towards Sok Kwu Wan. There are some shops along the main street so feel free to take your time to poke around and grab a bite before you hit the trail. If you do eat, make sure to leave room for tofu flower dessert!
Along the path, there is a stall that sells homemade tofu flower and it also makes for a great rest stop. To be honest, it isn't the best bowl of tofu flower i've had but it is a good stop for a break.
2. Wind Power Station
After enjoying your tofu flower, continue on the trail and follow the signs to the Wing Power Station (you'll end up turning left and it's a winding uphill). It's uphill for most of the way so make sure you're wearing proper shoes. To get a good pic of the wind turbine there's a small path on the right (when you reach the top) which will take you to a higher ground. From there you can get a good look of the turbine and the surrounding bay.
3. Chill at Just Green
After the hike up to the turbine, you can either continue to Suk Kwu Wan for dinner (they're well known for seafood) or head back to Yung Shue Wan. Keep in mind that Suk Kwu Wan is about another hour's walk away and the ferry back to Central is not as frequent so make sure to check the schedule beforehand! If you head back to Yung Shue Wan, stop by a grocery store called Just Green on the Main Street. Aside from being an organic supermarket, my favourite part is their "living room" and terrace at the back. At the price of an ice cream (or whatever else you wish to purchase), you can rest here while overlooking the bay or hang out in their quirky living room inside.
