building with a hole
Among all the Hong
, Repulse Bay is most famous. The English name may
sound not sound inviting, but the beach is - the name came from the fact
that the British army had chased off some pirates in the old days.
The Chinese name is more descriptive - it means "Shallow Water Bay".
In summer, this place is pretty much standing room only. But
if you are from cold places where 20 degrees Celcius is just right
for sun-bathing, November is the great time of year to go to avoid
the crowds! Sometimes, even December is quite balmy. And the water is ... refreshing!
There is an interesting building that you will see there: one
with a hole! If you're looking for Repulse Bay Hotel, sorry, there's no more.
