Summary

At the top of Razor Hill, it gives sublime scenery over Ma On Shan, Inner Port Shelter, the peninsula of Clear Water Bay and even Tseung Kwan O. However, overlooking from the hill, the buildings are more intensive and number of them still increases. After the years, Small Hawaii Waterfall nearby seems to become the natural heritage. At that time, how much green woodland will remain?
