Thank you for your query we do not have a website, as we have found the BLOG to be proactive and can portray our B&B and the surrounding area much more comprehensively. The beauty with a BLOG is that it is updated almost daily, with local news, tourist links, restaurants. There are over 5000 photo's throughout the season so you'll certainly gain am excellent overview.
If you have any specific requests please just ask. I note you are enquiring from Hong Kong a special place for me as I used to be involved in textiles and fashion and visited quite frequently. What time of the year are you thinking of visiting, maybe I can offer a few suggestions for your trip.
Our best wishes, always a warm welcome!
