HK Diary Day 3 - Shek O 石澳

We made our way to Shek O... We were all very excited.
Decided on our destination only on the night before. Ha!
Thanks SF for your fabulous suggestion!

First, we have to go to Shau Kei Wan MRT station to take bus 9.
We passed by Shau Kei Wan wet market, just beside Shau Kei Wan MRT station.
First cultural experience at wet market in HK! Unique! :)

We tried the eggette 鸡蛋仔, a popular Hong Kong street snack. Delicious! :)

The bus terminus is just outside the MTR station. Shek O beach is the last stop. Yipee!

Shek O, on Hong Kong Island's east coast, is a village with a great looking beach to its south.
The beach looks wonderful! Weather was excellent that day.. lucky :)
A popular weekend and holiday destination, offering a public barbecue area and many restaurants.
Great hangout with friends and family!

On a side note, just found out that Shek O Country Club housed some of Hong Kong's most luxurious and expensive homes. These 20 or so large detached houses with private gardens and sea views cost tens of millions of dollars!! Wow!

Their owners include:
- Richard Li (the youngest son of Li Ka-shing) is also at this exclusive area. - 2010 May ASIA TATLER.
- the chairman of Wheelock and Company Peter Woo Kwong-ching,
- Sino Land boss Robert Ng Chee-siong (son of our late Singaporean tycoon Ng Teng fong),
- HK Tycoon Julian Hui Chun Hung (husband of TVB 1988 pageant winner Michelle Reis). Their wedding took place in swanky HK$700 million dollar residence Hung Hung in Shek O in 2008. The house definitely worths more now!
