LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY on Po Toi Island

  • Mar 16, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

These are the busses that stop at Aberdeen Promenade. You have to walk a little bit back. And then you see the entrance to Tsui Wah Ponton. A single fare is HK$20.00. The exact fare is appreciated at the counter there. The ferry leaves at 10.00h sharp. Therefore be early, 9.30h, that everyone can purchase the ticket on time. We can have lunch on the island. There is a small restaurant and we try to book a table in advance. At 16.00h we take the ferry back to Aberdeen. LAST FERRY!!!!!!!

Po Toi is a small island with beautiful sea- and landscape. Further inland there a some abandoned villages that have their own atmosphere and are great photo locations as well.

What to bring: Camera, Tripod, Wide angle lens, 50mm lens, ND filter. Don't worry if you do not have such extended camera gear. Compact will do as well. Until now everyone went home from Po Toi with good shots.

There is a lot to see and to shoot. And if you want to take a "Time Out" from shooting just sit at the tranquil beach and relax.

Notice!!

For some of you who would like to stay for the sunset, here's an offer made by a friend who owns a yacht. The yacht that can take 8 people back after 8 pm. It's a private yacht and the owner is charging HK$125 per person if he can get 8 persons. If there's less people, the cost will be distributed evenly among the people.

Remember, it's only for the trip back! The pic of the yacht is here.

    For the ferry, I guess the last one will be leave Po Toi at 6pm. Coz I just went there on last sunday 10 mar. Better to call the ship company to double confirm (phone no. [masked]). To see whether they have the same arrangement as last sunday. And you guys can request to hold the seat by payment in advance. Remember to try the seaweed soup, quite nice ^^. Have funs!

    For the seafood restaurant Ming Kee, here is the contact no[masked] for reservation. Hope can share a bit information for you guy.

    March 15, 2013

    • Stefanie

      Hi Jennifer, yes on Sunday the last ferry is at 6pm. But we are going on Saturday.

      March 15, 2013

  • Randall C.

    Thanks Ron about the news about the yacht. Anybody interested in taking the yacht back at 8pm, or better yet trying to find a place to stay on the island over night after shooting the sunset and catch the sunrise? I figure we will be able to find or stumble into some sort of sleeping arrangement on the island... :-)

      I'm interested Randall, but would prefer to have a look and see how it's goin'.

      March 15, 2013

    • ron

      I think we'll keep the yacht as an option only if there are enough people to distribute the cost of $1,000 for a trip back. If not, we'll take the 4pm regular ferry for $20 only. We'll ask everyone when we meet in the morning.
