Po Toi is only a 45 minute ferry ride away from Aberdeen, but it feels like a world away from Hong Kong. This is a small island somewhat lost in time. There are no cars and only a handful of small buildings. This is a place for serenity and picturesque hills. There are a number of hiking options. You can... More

A crowd of us had a great Sunday lunch at the Ming Lee restaurant on Po Toi where we really enjoyed the peppered prawns, garlic prawns, garoupa fish and fried rice amongst the many dishes that stood out. It's always fun to come and visit the Po Tois and this was no exception. We had a very warm welcome as... More

We like to hike different places each trip so planned to visit Po Toi Island. Went to Aberdeen as the ferries were supposed to go to the island from there that day. Found out that on public holidays they leave from Stanley so luckily managed to get a bus quite quickly and get there to catch a ferry as there... More

We started with a boat trip to Po Toi Island from Aberdeen on the south part of Hong Kong island. Our goal was to hike around parts of Po Toi and we started off looking forward to a fantastic nature experience. However, it soon was clear to us that our Swedish bodies aren't made for the weather conditions here: the... More

Nice trail starts from temple, North of the ferry jetty. A bit difficult to find at first but really nice. After a while the trail becomes paved. Hike clockwise so you can enjoy the view over the south west Peninsula when you climb the stairs down from the summit.

The pier in Stanley has a ferry to the island, which is a great way to see some of the islands. After grinding in the city this spot feels a million miles away. There is a wonderful basic seafood restaurant serving quality seafood. So take a trip to Stanley, do a little shopping and go to Po Toi for lunch.... More

Po Toi Islands consists of 4 islands namely Po Toi, Waglan Island, Sung Kong and Beaufort Island. Only Po Toi is accessible by public transport. There are a few trails on Po Toi. Due to the ferry schedule, a day tour is more suitable. A day walk from the ferry to the southernmost point and back to the ferry. Main... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
