“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Lamma Island is one of the larger outlying islands of Hong Kong, located southwest of Hong Kong Island and accessible by ferry from Central and Aberdeen. The island is home to several fishing villages and a resident expatriate population. Once the abode of hippies, Lamma maintains a laid-back, bohemian vibe. Popular attractions on Lamma include seafood restaurants clustered around the So Ku Wan ferry pier and Sham Wan, an ancient Bronze Age archeological site that serves as a breeding ground for endangered green sea turtles. Hiking trails extend from Yung Shue Wan to So Ku Wan, offering stunning views of the island's lush surroundings.
