Review by Tighthead Prop, Australia, August 2012
I did a day trip on the ferry out to Lamma Island on a recent trip to Hong Kong, and absolutely loved it ! You get away from the madness of HK, and the local restaurants serve up all manner of seafood for lunch.
You can catch a ferry to a couple of spots on the island, we ferried into Sok Kwu Wan, had lunch, then walked along the Lamma Island Family Walk to the other side of the island, and caught the ferry from Yung Shue Wan back to HK. The walk is about 4km, some up hills, and is maybe a couple of hours stroll by the time you allow a few stops along the way. The ferries don't run as often to Sok Kwu Wan as they do to Yung Shue Wan, so by going in this direction, you aren't waiting around for a ferry as long. And it is a great way to walk off lunch !!
Fantastic sea food. Nice and relaxing atmosphere def recommend for getting away from busy HK
Buyer beware. The cost is low but much of the pass is worthless.
The Peak tram is an absolute must do in HK! This pass worked with no problems.
There is no way to obtain your pass before arriving in Hong Kong so if you have a flight that occurs late at night (mine arrived 11.20PM) you can forget about using the airport transfer.
I agree with the other reviewer about the Victoria Harbour tour pass. This must be obtained from the 10th floor Star Tower on the same day as the tour and the receipt brought to the pier. The problem is that the office doesn't open until 9 AM (if on time) and the tours starts at 10. If you show up any other time, like attempting to book a day in advance, you are refused. However the tour is superb!
Also as noted, the DHK balloon is out of commission, Viator has now updated this on the web site but this was not the case when I booked.
The really bad:
Quote: "Fisherfolks’ Village on Lamma Island: Enjoy a 30-minute scenic ferry ride from Hong Kong Island to Lamma Island. Then, explore this quaint fishing village to learn about the humble culture of fisherfolks" Except that the ferry ride is NOT included. What DO you get for this "tour" when you arrive? Only a photocopy of a map and you're on your own. Bleh!
