Hong Kong East 

Day 1

Central - Bluff Island - Tai Long - Sai Kung Town - Yim Tin Tsai

• Bluff Island: Most parts of the exposed stratum of Bluff Island belong to the Early Cretaceous Kau Sai Chau Volcanic Group. From the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous, this region was the site of earth-shaking changes. It began at about 146 million years ago (Late Jurassic) when there were violent magma activities. Fiery underground magma intruded upwards, melting ancient rocks along its path. It forced its way through cracks and thrust along crustal faults or weak bands until it reached the surface to cause great volcanic eruptions. Sometimes magma was pressed inside underground voids. It created such an immense force that when it finally broke out it made a catastrophic impact. The explosion shot volcanic ash and gravels high into the air. Lava was vented out from the crater from where it coursed down the slopes, igniting fires and generating great clouds of ash and fume. According to data for determining the absolute age of rocks, volcanic eruptions and magma intrusion activities took a cyclical pulse pattern. In every cycle, major eruptions were always followed by great magma intrusions. Such cyclical volcanic magma activities can be categorised into four stages, and consequently, there are four volcanic rock groups in Hong Kong ranging from old to new: Tsuen Wan Group, Lantau Group, Repulse Bay Group and Kau Sai Chau Group. Judging by the exposed stratum of Bluff Island, we know that eruptions took place in the 4th stage.

 

• Tai Long Wan: scenic eastern end of Hong Kong Island, close to the Dragon’s Back hiking trail. It’s also home to a prehistoric rock carving that is now preserved as a Declared Monument. Remaining undiscovered until a police officer stumbled upon it in 1970, the rock carving shows geometric designs and animals and is one of many similar carvings found around coastal areas of Hong Kong. These cultural artworks reinforce how much Hong Kong’s early inhabitants must have depended on the sea. Eateries surrounding the beach provide light refreshments.

• Sai Kung: The second-largest area in Hong Kong in terms of landmass, Sai Kung is dubbed the “back garden of Hong Kong”, known for its fishing villages, beautiful scenery, hiking trails, beaches and islands, geological formations and low-key lifestyle. Most of the action is concentrated in Sai Kung Town Centre, where fishermen sell fresh catches from their boats just off the pier, diners feast on finger-licking seafood dishes, and locals go about their day-to-day lives.
