In the past few decades the island has transformed, from a small island with a few thousand residents to a perfect living destination for businessmen looking for peace and quiet. The vibrant and busy city is put aside here, with small private, peaceful and colorful homes. Wide sidewalks are here instead of the busy city streets that are full of traffic, with blue skies above, and not the city sky full of skyscrapers.
Lamma is about a half hour ferry ride from the city of Hong Kong, but the difference between them is huge. There are no skyscrapers on this island, or noisy transportation vehicles, with beautiful views and preserved green nature.
