21 Sep Hiking to Peng Chau on 18 Nov, 2023 (Sat)
In order to increase and promote understanding, communication and interaction among members, the Institute is organizing a relaxing hiking in November and welcomes all members, friends and family members to join.
The island of Peng Chau, or ‘flat island’ — covering less than 1 sq km — offers a relaxing retreat with easy trails and a taste of real village life without the bustle of holidaymakers, yet it’s less than an hour’s ferry ride from the central business district on Hong Kong Island.
According to historical records, business activities on Peng Chau were thriving halfway through the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), and in some areas, time seems to have stood still for decades. Despite its small size, the charming island is dotted with Instagram and photography spots — from remains of an old factory, beaches and temples, to street arts which add vibrancy to this tranquil community.
Quota: 20 persons (first come first served basis), the Institute will sponsor HK$50 for HKIVM member.
Organizers : Hong Kong Institute of Value Management (HKIVM)
