Hong Kong is made up of many islands, but Lamma is probably my favourite. It’s where I’ll retire to – if I stay in Hong Kong long enough to do so. There are no cars, British style pubs and cafes (but not in a Benidorm kind of way), beaches, jungles and, best of all, aging hippies.
There are two main villages on the island, Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan, and the pictures below are of the hour long walk between them. The only drawback to the island is the massive power station that is constantly in the corner of your eye wherever you are on the island. According to the Hong Kong Chinese, the power station’s three towers look like the three sticks of incense that you burn for the dead, and therefore to have a house overlooking it is bad luck. Note the picture of me in the sea – on New Year’s Day, dammit!
