Back from my lighthouse trip to Hong Kong and Macau I want first thank Mitko and Fluorite for their help in preparing my trip!
Both cities are amazing ! I had not too much time to visit all the Hong Kong Lighthouses. Some months later I will upload all my pictures!
But let my give all lighthousefriends a great advice to find the lights by smartphone! I owe this advice Alexander Trabas, manager of Webside " Online List of Lights"!
Start download the app "maps.me" on your tablet or smartphone. Download map, for instance Taiwan! Now change to " Online list of lights" , go to country Taiwan and download KML-Data from Taiwan.
Now you can switch all lights from OLL in your map Taiwan.
Maybe can Mitko explain this action more professional!
With this help from Maps.me it was an easy way to find all lights! Great deal!
The picture shows Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter Dolphin E, P 3571.52, in Hong Kong!
