DAY 4 (CON’T)
Initially went on a wrong detour when we followed this group of tourists off a shortcut, only to meet with a dead end at the residential area slightly off the Yung Shue Wan Main Street. But we managed to get back on track by following the road signs and direction markers …… and kept going straight after going past the 1st major landmark – the Tin Hau Temple.
Walked into Tai Yuen Village and a short while later, we reached our first ‘rest stop’ – Ah Por Tofu Fa!
This tofu stall has legendary status on Lamma Island itself (check out this review here) and there was a small quene when we reached. A cold, chilled beancurd would have been perfect given the warm and sticky weather …… but business was so good that the cold version is only sold out. Nevertheless, the warm version was also just as good 🙂
Another short 10 min walk and we are at the next major landmark of our walk/hike – Hung Shing Yeh Beach! A pretty good crowd at the beach given that its Summer Season right now in Hong Kong.
Also chanced upon the Herb Garden located at the corner from the beach area …… and caught my first glimpse of the Lamma Power Station.
We decided not to stop by the beach and so continued the walk uphill towards the next landmark. Now the walk starts to steepen as we go gradually upslope. This is also when we are feeling the effects of the hot blazing afternoon sun while tackling the steep upslope 😛
Thank god for some greenery (around the hilly area) ……
