This Sunday, December 10, the trampers are going to have a leisure walk for Yim Tin Tsai (Chinese: 鹽田仔; literally: "Little Salt Field) , Sai Kung.

We will meet at 9:40am at Sai Kung Pier and try to catch a ferry at 10:00am.  Taking a 15-minute boat ride from Sai Kung Pier, we will arrived at Yim Tin Tsai.  It is an offshore island where is located at Inner Port Shelter about 3km east of Sai Kung Town.  There was an abandoned Hakka village and all the villagers lived on farming, fishing and salt-making at the old days.  Besides salt farms and fish ponds could be found on the island, there are some former Hakka village houses, village school and also St. Joseph's Chapel.  We will spend couple of hours there and will end the walk before 4pm for the return boat back to Sai Kung. (HKD45.00 each person for the ferry - round trip).
