HKUST MGMT 2011 Christmas Boat Trip (44).JPG

I’m quite blessed. The small university I’m currently with – HKUST – is located on a mountain ridge overlooking the Sai Kung Peninsula with some of the best scenic views of any university anywhere in the world.

Kau Sai Chau’s Golf Course is as good as it gets with public golf courses. Set in the beautiful scenery of Sai Kung Peninsula, looking terrific from my university (HKUST) not too far away, people might go there to golf – but the view and the settings is what makes it special. There are other […]

Sai Kung Boardwalk-30.JPG

Sai Kung, about 10-15 minutes bus ride away from HKUST, is a lovely place to visit. A combination of busy local fishing culture and residing expats who were looking for a comfortable getaway from HK island, Sai Kung has alot to offer – beaches, great restaurants, and beautiful views of the outlying islands. It’s also […]
