In the southwest of Hong Kong island, Lamma is, in perfect contrast to Hong Kong and Kowloon- peaceful and tranquil, with relatively natural scenery. Buildings higher than three storeys are prohibited and there are no roads and hence, no automobiles- community’s only transport means is by foot or bicycle.
Lamma provides an alternative to the hectic life in the city. Property and rents are cheap compared with those of central Hong Kong… Popular with younger people and said a haven for artists, cartoonists and musicians.
We took the ferry from Ferry Pier in Central on Hong Kong Island. It was a 20 minutes ride on fast ferry.
A short trek through the village – lunch at beach followed by time in sea. It was fun and a great break away from routine…
