Exploring Hong Kong’s ‘South Pole’

Jan 18, 2018


An interesting field trip to Po Toi Island, also known as ‘the South Pole of Hong Kong’, was help on 13 January. This half-day activity was co-organized by the BBA Alumni Association and the Geography and Resource Management Alumni Association of CUHK. 

Despite the cold and windy weather, 57 participants, including alumni and their friends, joined the outing. The group set off from Blake Pier in Stanley after lunch and were guided by professors and alumni from the Department of Geography and Resource Management. They were amazed by the spectacular landscape and stunning views, and enjoyed learning about how the peculiar-looking granite rocks all over the island were formed.

“Hiking in one of the most beautiful natural spots in Hong Kong was a thoroughly enjoyable experience,” said Mr. Raymond Lo, President of the BBA Alumni Association. “I’m very grateful to the Geography and Resource Management Alumni Association for co-organizing this fun and inspiring event, and getting a new year of networking activities off to a great start. We welcome all alumni to join our year-round calendar of events and connect with teachers and fellow alumni. Let’s build a stronger network together!” 



Everyone happily poses for a group photo at the end of the hike. Hurray!
