Join us for a great outdoor trip to visit some of Hong Kong’s geological and cultural heritage sites with Professor Chan Lung-sang. The Tolo Channel (赤門海峽) – Double Haven (印洲塘) boat trip starts in the morning from Ma Liu Shui Pier and cruises towards Tap Mun (Grassy Island). We will take a short walk to viewing points on Tap Mun before lunch. In the afternoon, we will cruise towards Double Haven via Hung Shek Mun (紅石門) where the reddest rocks in Hong Kong are exposed. This will be followed by a visit to Sai Lau Kong (西流江), the last remaining original fishing village, and a final stop at Ap Chau (鴨洲) before returning to Ma Liu Shui.
