Sun Sept 4, 2016: Junk Trip
Organised by: Amanda
Meet: 9:30 am at University MTR station (It's the one immediately before 'Tai Po Market' Station on the East Rail Line.  Please DO NOT mix it up with 'HKU' Station, which is on the Hong Kong Island line.)
Description: We'll go aboard a junk in the morning and make a tour around the beautiful islands in the north-eastern part of Hong Kong. Remember to bring your swimming suit as we will definitely stop somewhere to swim. We may also take the opportunity to explore some of the islands after swimming. So, please bring along with you a pair of sandals good enough for walking along the shore. Food and drinks are NOT provided, so please bring whatever you need to survive the whole day. I'll divide the junk hire charge among the number of people who ACTUALLY show up. So, feel free to bring your friends along, but you need to book your places in advance. To book your place, or for more information, please email Amanda.
