|Comments||In the past, if you want to see the beautiful scenery of “Thousand Islands Lake”, you had to climb up to a hill. Now you can easily walk along the MacLehorse Trail to the newly built Reservoir Islands Viewpoint, and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Tai Lam Chung Reservoir. In addition, the deck in Reservoir Islands Viewpoint is built with a lot of local natural materials. The design of the deck is also based on simplicity, which is the same as the newly built deck in Bui Tsim Kok of Sai Kung. The architectural concept of the deck is commendable.|
