  • Heads up for food poisoning

    Lamma Island Warnings and Dangers

    I've just come back from Lamma island (18/09/2011) and I have had some symptoms of food poisoning. Although it's too early to be sure which kind of food poisoning I have, I suspect it happened in Tai Yuen Seafood Restaurant, where I had only a small crab, the only sea food I had in many days. The restaurant was full of locals and the fish was...

    Tai O Things to Do

    Quite possibly the worlds smallest draw bridge is in Tai O. Sun Kei street and Sun Kei Bridge are pedestrian-only streets, at most only ~2m wide.If you find this bridge, just continue across and wonder the small little alleys and foot paths into the labyrinth of the stilt village.Depending on the tide's cycle and the size of the boats, this little...

    Tai O Transportation

    Avoid those dolphin trips anyway, they go speeding around with no regard for the dolphins' safety. Highly suspect. And Ocean Park is only if captive animals are your thing.

  • Goose, pigeons, sea cucumber

    Hong Kong Island Restaurants

    Quite pricey. We came unannounced without reservation. 8 of us and they said we could have a table but would have to eat and run by a certain time. We agreed to it and had a great dining experience although i thought the pigeon was not up to standard. Fortunately, there were only 2 pigeons left.

  • Have a typical dim sum experience

    Hong Kong Island Things to Do

    Visit a restaurant where dim sum is served. There are cheap ones around. You needn't order a lot, just a plate of dumplings will do and tea. It is better of course if you have a big group and you can order a variety to taste and share. We were a group of 8 and actually in our greed and excitement over-ordered. As it was our last morning in Hong...

    Sha Tin Nightlife

    Ride along the Shing Mun River and around Tolo Harbour at midnight. There are a couple hundred cylists on a midnight ride. Of course this cycle path is popular in daytime too. I love the contrast of riders with Tour de France jerseys and adults riding with training wheels.

    I have resently had a very close encounter with a King Cobra on the peninsula leading to Trio beach and quite a few people have now told me that they have been chased by cobras as well.
