    I remember that i enjoyed this trip so so much 3 years ago when i was in Hong Kong. I did never inhale so much oxygen in my lifetime!!! The air is absolutely beautiful as well as the giant monument and the peace you feel in the surrounding monastery. I recommend it for sure!

    We did this tour a couple of days after Typhoon Mangkhut. There were still workmen clearing roads from tree debris etc. Because we were running very late most of the shops at Stanley Market were shut but we still had a stroll around the area. As part of the tour we took a ride on a traditional ‘sampan’ to gain insights into lively floating community still in existence today at Aberdeen. All in all it was a great way to see Hong Kong
