Lau Fau Shan, Hong Kong

3.8
#15 of 33 in Nature in Hong Kong
Lau Fau Shan (Chinese: 流浮山; literally: 'Floating mountain') is an area in the New Territories of Hong Kong. It is at the shore of Deep Bay, near Tin Shui Wai and facing Shekou in Shenzhen, China. It is traditionally famous for fresh oysters. About 100 tons were harvested every year, some for consumption in Hong Kong restaurants and some for export to neighboring countries. However, little remains of this today since most of the inhabitants of Lau Fau Shan have given up oyster culture.
Moreover, here stands a 1500-year-old temple founded by the legendary monk Pui To, who is said to have landed on this coast in a wooden tub.
