Changes In Lamma


In Lamma Island now there are ferries coming from the central pier. But before, there was no ferries in Hong Kong. So all of the residents were not in Lamma Island. Since no one was living there, the government decided to build a leather factory and pig farm in Lamma. And the waterfront was built as a plastic factory.

Later on, the first ever ferry in Hong Kong was made to go to HK→Lamma→Cheng Chau. When the first ferries were made, the pig farm closed down. Also they closed the factories down since more residents came to Lamma. But people who were going to Lamma to HK, took a long time. So this did not work.

And in the 1960's, a ferry going from HK to Lamma was made. But this ferry was really slow and took 40 minutes. And now there are new ferries going to HK to Lamma in 20 minutes.
