Highly contrasting with the city’s vibes, the Lamma Island is tranquil, quaint and calm with endless natural scenes and hang out spots. You cannot see a building which is higher than 2 floors as it is prohibited and the whole community has no mode of transport except on a bicycle or on foot. Sound strange, but that’s what keeps the town free from pollution and smoky air.
The island is not a tourism enabled place yet, therefore, staying in at a hotel or serviced apartment in Hong Kong would be a good idea if you look for luxury and comfort and the Somerset Victoria Park Hong Kong is one such place within the city.
Yung Shue Wan
The Banyan Bay or the Yung Shue Wan is the most populated part of the island, with seafood restaurants, pubs, and grocery stores along with shops that sell authentic locally made handicraft. This was once the focal point of the plastics industries and the factories have now been replaced by the local businesses.
This bay is one of the 5 most important heritage sites in Hong Kong as it is a prominent site that depicts the settlement during the Bronze Age.
