The tour begins from the Pak Tai Temple (supreme Emperor of the Dark Heaven).

Next walk down the beautiful Tung Wan Beach with its clear water and soft sand, a most popular spot for windsurfing and canoeing. The 3,000 year old Bronze-Age rock carvings can be seen with geometric graphics and abstract animal images.

Walk through the old main street of Pak She Street and San Hing Street, you will see a typical island community. After take 20 minute sampan ride to cruise inside the typhoon shelter to see the historical and cultural aspects of old fishing communities to West Bay, Cheung Po Tsai Cave. The mysterious cave reputed to have been the hideout of notorious 19th Century pirate Cheung Po Tsai (Prince of Pirates), who is said to have commanded followers of 2 thousand and a fleet of 600 junks.

The next stop is a Tin Hau Temple. Local people come to the temple for guidance by shaking the prediction box. Take a walk along the beautiful scenery of West Lane from Sai Wan to a local restaurant for dim sum lunch, after which you will have free time to explore the island by foot or on a bike.

Very good tour, the tour guide Ming, was excellent.

Reviewed by: Suzanne B P, August 2011

This tour was really good, we were a family of three who had the guide to ourselves. Ming told us more than we could find in a book about the history and culture of the people on the island and other relevant facts about the Chinese in general. I would recomend this to anyone who wants to see the real deal in a small village not the tourist hot spots that dont let you experience anothers way of life.
