Edge of Victoria Harbour: Shau Kei Wan to Lei Yue Mun 

History, culture, traditions and great views converge in this little-visited corner of the city that even a lot of Hong Kongers don’t know well. This is your chance to get out of the usual tourist grid and visit a truly local Hong Kong. Shau Kei Wan and Lei Yue Mun are settlements that face each other across the narrowest part of Victoria Harbour–walking both sides and crossing the harbour on a tiny open-sided ferry, you’ll get a different angle on our city, and get a rare glimpse of what it might have looked like before the British came. This walk is a special treat for photographers too.
