Oct 30 2011, I left Poland and came back to China, finished my 4 years oversea life. Now i am living in Shenzhen China, a south chinese city which is very close to Hongkong. Nov 5 2011 ,Europe had entered into winter but South China was still in summer . Temperature was around 22~28, very comfortable. Two of my friends and i took a paddle in double haven sea Hongkong.

Since Chinese government blocked the Google Picasa. I have to upload my pictures to the "Chinese Google" : http://pp.baidu.com/. But i am not sure whether you can see my picture or not.

Hi Howard,
Sounds like an interesting trip. I'm afraid I couldn't see the pictures, but it is possible that might be my fault for running 'noscript' on firefox (it says it is blocking something from dpbolvw.net, whatever that may be; but your pictures are on hi.baidu.com so I've not unblocked it). See if anyone else complains they can't see them before changing anything.

I've very much enjoyed your blogs from various parts of Europe. Looking forward to hearing more about your chinese trips.

All the best,
Ian

Hi Ian
Now i know the problem. hi.baidu.com can only allow registered users to visit the pictures. It is difficult for a foreigner to register into this web site. Before i found the better solution, I will upload the pictures to this forum directly.

regards
Howard

Thanks, Howard. I'm on a different computer this evening (also running Firefox and noscript) and can see your pictures just fine. Not sure whether that is because you changed something, or whether it is to do with my other computer, but in any case thanks for the report. It looks like a great trip.
Looking forward to reading more about your paddling!
All the best,
Ian

Good camping place. Fresh water, barbecue rack, toilet, everything is available. Hong Kong government set up couples of such camping spots around the coast. Tourist can only camp in these appointed camping place.

Double haven sea is surrounded by couples of islands, calm, like a lake. It belongs to the Hong Kong Plover Cove Country Park.

Athough in one country, Hong Kong and China mainland now have different social system. We can not drive our cars to here. So we had to go back to Shenzhen by train.

Howard,

Great pictures and report. I've been to Hong Kong several times and always saw areas that would be amazing for kayaking. Where do you go to find designated campsites and kayak put-ins?
