Explore Kat O and Ap Chau

Ap Chau Geosite Visitors can see extraordinary red breccia at Ap Chau which is rare in Hong Kong, and appreciate a diverse range of striking wave erosion landforms at close range, such as a sea cliff, wave-cut platform, wave-cut notch, sea arch and sea stack, plus the famous ‘Duck’s Eye’. Ap Chau once had a thriving fishing community but only a few villagers continue to live on the island today. Its rustic bucolic charm is still inviting.

Cultural Essence Series – "Beyond Multi-arts"

  Is Hong Kong a “cultural desert”? Ever been criticised for being lowbrow? To be well-cultured one needs to know how to appreciate culture. Most people do not, however, have a clue as to how to start. Some may even regard Hong Kong as a “cultural desert”, a place with a poor cultural atmosphere.  It is a misunderstanding indeed. In fact, Hong Kong is full of cultural activities. The Cultural Presentations Section of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department is bringing different programmes to us every day or week. “Beyond Multi-arts”In this issue, I would like to recommend the “Beyond Multi-arts” cultural programme series. Running from September to December, it comprises programmes of diverse contents and forms such as dance performances and cross-media shows. Although some of them were held already, the rest are still available for booking. Get your tickets now!
