Nam San Wai offers a fairly easy walk for family outing and dog walking, with delightful views of old village houses and reflections of trees.
The rural setting of Nam San Wai and lush trees are lovely themes for photography. As you can see above, I still have to work hard to take pictures that are as good as other photographers.
