Transportation: Boat trip

Lunch: Seafood lunch at Kat O

One of the most famous scenic spot, the Devil’s Fist can be found at Wong Tsui Kok Tsui in this region. Other places such as Yan Chau Tong Marine Park that cannot be reached without a specific boat trip consist of beautiful landscapes and high ecological values. Besides, we can also observe the management practice of geopark that helps to the conservation and environmental education. We will have a land-based tour on two ecological hotspots, Lai Chi Wo Special Area and Lai Chi Chong. Lai Chi Wo Special Area consists of comprehensive facilities for the sake of visit and education while an original landscape without intense human activities will appear in Lai Chi Chong. Participants can have a chance to experience two different management styles in the geopark. Kat O has a long fishing history and shows a real example of sustainable development after the establishment of geopark. Participants can know more about the cultural heritage as well as having a traditional seafood lunch provided!
