Yung Shue Ha (Chinese: 榕樹下; literally: "under the banyan tree") is a village on the south side of Lamma Island, Hong Kong. It is across the bay (Tung O Wan) from the village of Tung O. Both villages are sparsely populated and many places are abandoned.

Features[edit]

A small Hung Shing shrine is located at the far western end of the beach between Yung Shue Ha and Tung O.

Transportation[edit]

Yung Shue Ha can be reached by ferry from Sok Kwu Wan via walking trail. At the north end of Sok Kwu Wan by the Tin Hau Temple is a very steep walking trail that leads to Yung Shue Ha via Tung O. It can also be reached by walking 25 minutes on a relatively flat trail from Mo Tat Wan village. A ferry service from Aberdeen, in the southern part of Hong Kong island, stops in Mot Tat Wan before going on to Sok Kwu Wan. In addition, a "sampan" or water taxi service from Aberdeen is available for a price of approximately 180HKD or $23.40 USD. Due to the currents in the area only a few water taxis will take passengers to the village.
