Happy Lunar New Year to you all! To kick off the Year of Sheep (or Goat), the YPG is excited to announce our upcoming “The Swing-by Event Series: Leisure Hike to Amah Rock and Lion Rock” to celebrate the New Year with you all. The route is a “must” route for all local planners as it presents the spectacular view of urban Kowloon, Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island on a clear day! We will be able to compare and identify the different urban morphology and transformation of Hong Kong. Moreover, this event will provide you a perfect opportunity to meet with other planners and mingle with each other.
Details of the hike are as follows:
Date: 22 March 2015 (Sunday)
Gathering Time: 9:00am
Gathering Venue: Che Kung Temple Station (車公廟站), Ma On Shan Line (Exit B)

We look forward to taking this fun challenge of the new year with you all!
