Mong Tseng Wai Lau Fau Shan Sunset 輞井圍流浮山日落
Hong Kong

流浮山 流浮山位於香港元朗區西部,靠近后海灣。 流浮山原址位於天水圍以西,廈村以北的一座小山丘。但後來主要代表其西面數條鄉村較旺盛的地方。 流浮山以其出產的海鮮聞名,尤其是蠔。因為該處位於后海灣畔,臨近珠江口,有淡水流入,所以適合養蠔。高峰期於1970至80年代,不少旅行團專程前往品嚐 香港日落拍攝好去處 - 流浮山 流浮山, 一個我時常前去拍攝日落的地方。 流浮山, 一個打風落雨前後, 我最有機會趕上拍照的地方。 流浮山, 一個全港朋友也在拍日落時, 我卻無法拍攝的地方,  煙霞怎樣也比其它地方厚。   流浮山位於元朗和天水圍的西北面, 面臨后海灣, 沿來指的是附近的一座小山, 現在指的是這裡的數條村落。 相信很多愛攝影的朋友, 也到過白泥這個地方, 要到白泥, 從元朗天水圍方向出發, 必先經過流浮山這地方, 到流浮山後, 轉往牌方的左方, 就可以到白泥了,從右手邊走, 最後會到達尖鼻咀的地方, 近來, 還成為假期間, 從元朗/天水圍出發踏單車的人仕時常途經的中途站, 在那裡有一座小小的山丘, 山上有涼亭, 可以遠眺米埔, 山背河 和 深圳河流入后海灣的程況, 冬季時可在山下的濕地和紅樹林中, 觀察不同的候鳥。  流浮山, 尖鼻咀 到白泥一帶, 因為位處后海灣畔, 鄰近珠江, 深圳河等入海口, 是一個鹹淡水交界的地方, 適合養殖生蠔, 因而以生蠔聞名, 亦因其在海邊和珠江口附近,六出產大量海鮮。以我小時候的, 70到80年代為最高峰,因價錢普遍較香港其他地方為低, 所以不少本地人或旅行團會來食用海鮮。但進入90年代, 因為香港的工廠大量遷入深圳和深圳開始高速發展的關係, 水質的污染越趨嚴重,使養蠔業差點結束。 近年因為環境控制的關係, 在白泥一帶, 有人在海上以吊抬的方式重新開始養殖生蠔, 但以往的村民, 以特別制作的可塊放到海裡指定的蠔田上, 等蠔苗自行依附生長的養殖方法, 巳什為小見, 因為十多年的停產和人口老化的問題, 差不多巳沒有什麼村民懂得怎樣在退潮時到海裡取蠔了。  Lonely Planet review  Towards the northwestern edge of Hong Kong waters is Lau Fau Shan , a rural fishing village that hosts the only oyster farm in the territory. Today most people come here for the seafood restaurants, but the small oyster market is interesting enough to merit a peep. You’ll see oyster farmers shucking the shelled creatures on the waterfront. Sweeping Deep Bay and Shékǒu in Shēnzhèn lie just across the waters. To get to the shore, walk through the paved path(next to the public toilet) that’s lined with restaurants and fish tanks.  Four kilometres southwest of Lau Fau Shan, Pak Nai is quite deserted on weekdays, but you’re likely to see hordes of snap-happy locals here on late weekend afternoons, and you can’t blame them. Literally ‘white mud’, Pak Nai is one of the best places to see the sunset in Hong Kong. This 6km stretch of coastline is dotted with mangroves, fish ponds, farms, shacks and muddy beaches sprinkled with oyster shells. Sunset can be watched from most parts of Deep Bay Rd (it continues as Nim Wan Rd after Upper Pak Nai), the only road meandering along the coastline. Just get off the minibus when you see a spot you like. Green minibus 33 goes from Yuen Long via Lau Fau Shan. Check the website of Hong Kong Observatory for the sunset times.  Read more: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/hong-kong/yuen-long/sights/neighbourhoods-villages/lau-fau-shan-pak-nai#ixzz2sMpS4D6Z

More About Hong Kong

Overview and HistoryHong Kong sits on the south coast of China, on the Pearl River Delta. It's got a population of more than seven million people and is one of the most densely populated places on earth. It also appears to be putting into place the template for population management, which cities around the world will be implementing as soon as they can afford it. More on that later.Archaeological evidence dates human activity beneath present-day Hong Kong back to the stone age. The area was first settled by people from the mainland during the Han dynasty, around the beginning of the common era (the P.C. term for when B.C. changed to A.D. Whoa!)For hundreds of years, Hong Kong was a small fishing community and haven for travelers, with a few pirates here and there. Then whitey showed up.Western influence reached China at the beginning of the 15th century, when all those great explorers in boats were cruising for loot in strange and mysterious places. Tea and silk were the commodities connecting eastern Europe to China, and Hong Kong was known as a safe harbor through which to pass. When you're carrying the Queen's tea, it's especially important to avoid ARRRRRRguments with pirates. Hyuk hyuk hyuk.Seriously folks -- in the eighteenth century Britain was doing a booming business with China, offering Indian opium to balance their extensive purchases of fine porcelains and everything else. The opium was ordained to be for medicinal purposes only, of course.Well, as you may imagine, the Chinese got sick of opium fiends junking up the place, so they attempted to stop the British suppliers, to no avail. The Opium Wars resulted and ended with China ceding Hong Kong to the British, in fear of their massive naval power. This took place in the year 1841.Colonization soon followed, Hong Kong shot up in value as an international port, and its population increased dramatically. In 1898 Britain acquired additional territories on a 99 year lease -- expiring in 1997. Does that year sound familiar? Read on.In the 20th century Hong Kong changed hands several times. The British surrendered it to Japan during World War Two, then took it back after Japan's defeat, then gave it to China later. Immediately following the war, Hong Kong served as a safe haven for hundreds of thousands of Chinese refugees, while the Chinese National Government was losing its civil war against communist leadership.The population of Hong Kong exploded as corporations seeking to escape Chinese isolationism arrived and set up shop. Cheap labor in the textile and manufacturing industries steadily built up the economy and ensured foreign investment. By the end of the 20th century Hong Kong had become a financial mammoth offering banking services to the world.In 1997 Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule with a few stipulations in place to guarantee its economic autonomy, as much as possible. The phrase "one country, two systems" was coined by the Chinese to describe the relationship between the mainland and Hong Kong.Getting ThereWell, where do you want to get to from the Hong Kong International Airport? There are ferries servicing six mainland ports in the Pearl River Delta Region. Airport Express Railway connects directly to downtown Hong Kong, and it has been rated the best airport in the world multiple times.The Airport Express Railway will get you into Hong Kong in about an hour, for $100. Public buses cost $10 and take a little longer. For direct service to your hotel you can take one of the hotel's private buses ($120+) or a taxi ($300+). As you can see, waiting time is optional for those who can afford it.Here's a little blurb on travel times, with further information for access to nearby cities (cross-boundary transport).TransportationGrab an Octopus card when you arrive. Octopus is the world's first electronic ticket-fare card system and the Hong Kong public transportation system is the world leader in people-moving. 90% of Hong Kongers get around on public transportation.Octopus covers the Airport Rail line, buses, ferries, the rapid-transit MTR network, supermarkets, fast food outlets, phone booths... It's how to get around the cashless economy.Nevermind the microchip built into it, you'll get used to having one of those on you at all times -- and soon they'll be internal! What do I mean? Many schools in Hong Kong even use the Octopus card to check attendance, because you read the card's data with an external scanner from a distance. This will the global norm soon. What if that chip is installed in your body? It's in the works baby!The hilly Hong Kong terrain also demands some special modes of transportation. If you've been to Pittsburgh, you may have some idea of how cool it is to ride a cable car up the side of a mountain, overlooking a majestic harbor and city. Multiply that by about ten thousand and you've got Hong Kong: vertical-travel trams, moving sidewalks, and the world's longest outdoor escalator system.People and CultureThe local currency is the Hong Kong dollar (HKD) which is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Official languages are Chinese and English.  You're on your own, baby!  Dive into the swarming, throbbing, pulsing, crawling and teeming mix!Things to do & RecommendationsThe Peak Tower and its shopping Galleria are the biggest tourist attraction in Hong Kong so don't miss it.Cool off in the Kowloon Park public indoor swimming pool!After that, go see what's happening at the Hong Kong Fringe Club, a non-profit organisation which puts together exhibitions for international artists and performers.Organize sports fans flock to the Hong Kong Stadium, but there's good news for disorganized sportistas too -- Mountain biking is now legal in the parks! Have at it, baby!All this excitement is going to make you hungry. Springtime is traditionally the time to celebrate seafood, summer is for fruits, and winter steams with hot pot soups to keep you warm.The best thing to do is go and find some dim sum. Dozens of plates of tasty small items, sort of like sushi but it's cooked, and the varieties are endless.Since you won't be able to walk down the street without complete and total sensory overload, I'll just whap in the Hong Kong tourist board's guide to dining and leave you to your intuition.Good luck, take it slow and above all -- DON'T SPIT OUT YOUR CHEWING GUM ON THE SIDEWALK. Gum is legal but there's a $500 fine for intentional littering. Enjoy!Text by Steve Smith.
