Photography Tours & Courses with the Orangutans in Borneo, earthquake destruction Christchurch New Zealand and life in Hong Kong
Lei Yu Mun
Only a mile or two down the coastline from the neon-lit spires of TST, the tumble-down village of Sam Ka Tsuen clings to the rocky shore of Lei Yue Mun, the narrow channel between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, which forms Victoria Harbour’s ‘east gate’. Elderly folk bravely dodge the shipping in single oared skiffs, a bustling seafood bazaar attracts busloads of Chinese tourists, dilapidated old houses are propped up on stilts on the sea’s edge and villagers go about their day-to-day lives, including worship at the historic Tin Hau temple. It’s a photographers’ delight and yet another example of the startling contrasts that make Hong Kong unique.
