Managed to see only the some parts of the Sai Kung Volcanic Region. Took the boat tour from the Volcano Discovery Centre at Sai Kung for 280 HKD. Lasted 3 hours. Scenery was great. Expect to see hexagonal columns, sea caves and arches.

Must go place if you like outdoor places. Views are spectacular and we were lucky that the weather was great. Have to bring bottled water as there are no shops on the 10km trail walk.
