    This place is a great way to see the beauty of the nature and architecture. It has a long way to go up, but the view is wonderful. You can get there by bus.

    We visited Lantau island in October.
    Our main destinations were,
    Tian Tan buddha
    Ngong Ping Village
    Wisdom path
    Tai O fishery village
    Fu Shan View Point
    Cheung sha beach

    We started our journey as early as possible. We arrived to Tung Chung around 10.30am. From MTR we walked pass through the bus terminal to the other side to take bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Wisdom path is also located in Ngong ping village. We covered all these areas within like 2hrs and took the bus No 21 to Tai O. Gets down at the last stop and keep walking through the village to and the trail path to Fu shan view point. It was a very sunny day there is no cover on top. We didnt spend much time there and we came to Cheung sha beach. You can take anybus that comes to Tung Chung from Tai O but you have to ask the bus driver to stop the bus to get off and the bech.

    There're some offshore islands good for day trip and I picked Lamma Island for my nephew last Sunday. We took ferry from Central pier and the ride was very cozy with excellent air con (very important these days) and less than 30 mins.

    Our route was from Yung Shue Wan (some western restaurants) to Sok Kwu Wan (some Chinese seafood restaurants) via the Hung Shing Yeh Beach.

    The path was flat with a bit uphill, we walked awhile, ate awhile (eg the famous Ah Po Tofu) and took a rest in the kiosks on the way. We had lunch in the Concerto Inn which is next to the Hung Shing Yeh beach.

    It's a sunny hot day. Felt so good to sweat 💦 We spent nearly 7 hours in the island. This place is less crowded than Cheung Chau, another popular island.

    An interesting choice. I think if you're from Hong Kong, it's definitely worth a trip, but if you're visiting on a holiday and you have limited time, not sure it's worth the trip.

    A lot of the value of coming here is to contextualize how far/different Hong Kong is now compared to its roots. There are a couple of nice things to buy here, including some traditional ingredients like seafood and shrimp paste. It is also connected to several hiking paths.

    My suggestion would be to come in the winter.

    BTW the most common way to get here is to go to the Tung Chung MTR station, then take the giant bus that everyone is lining up for.

    Po Lin Monastery is the most popular Buddhist temple in Hong Kong for sure. It certainly does not offer the serene, peaceful experience like any other religious institutions. The building itself is pretty grand, though. Unfortunately signboard or illustration is lacking. A good place to meander and spend a couple hours.

    Lived here in Discovery Bay for over 4 years having previously lived in Kennedy Town. Work in Central on HK Island. Very convenient to get to Central - the boats are frequent and throughout the day. Only about 1 hour door to door for me to get to work. Feels very relaxing here after a day in Central. Easy to get to airport with convenient bus services all day as well. Buses also take you around the area easily. Few good bars and restaurants. Basic shopping needs. And a nice beach. If you are visiting DB is not a bad place to base yourself but it's not really the HK you would be looking for I suspect.

    This is one of Hong Kong's famous long-distance trails, stretching 70 kilometers across and around Lantau Island, starting and stopping at Mui Wo. The trail is partitioned into 12 sections with a range of distance and degree of challenge. It skirts coastline, mountain ridges and crosses several of HK's tallest peaks.

    There are distance markers throughout the trail around every 500 metres. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. Probably the most famous sections are #2 (Nam Shan to Pak Kung Au) taking in the strenuous hike up to Sunset Peak and #3 (Pak Kung Au to Ngong Ping 360 village) similarly taking in Lantau Peak which is also referred to as Sunrise Peak. These are some of the highest peaks in Hong Kong, affording hikers outstanding views.

    Note: You will find public toilets at the start/finish of the trail sections as well and bus stops - transportation to/from Mui Wo or Tung Chung, depending on where you are accessing various trail sections. The trails that scale Lantau's peaks are exposed to the weather elements so do come prepared with adequate hiking wear, sunscreen, hats as well as sufficient food and water for your hike.

    This is a tourist attraction close to the renowned Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. A pleasant 20-minute walk from Ngong Ping, Wisdom Path is a collection of 38 pillars with Buddhist scripture inscription. Many argue that it is indeed a feng shui display. The lush space is cozy and offers a nice view.

    During COVID19 pretty much air travels are down to 5 % and consequently the Premium First lounge here only had a few customers.
    Only ordered from a small menu, it fills the need to fill the stomach and recharge cellphone and whatnot.
    Comfortable couches with charging outlets and USB ports.

    We recently spent a day on Peng Chau to enjoy some rural environs and a bit of hiking. This is a popular day trip destination for Hong Kongers looking to escape the chaos of the city in favour of the slower pace of life found on the outlying islands. You can reach Peng Chau from Central Pier 6 on Hong Kong Island and from Mui Wo ferry pier on Lantau Island.

    Peng Chau is around 1 sq. km and easy to hike the 7km Island trail that circles the island and crisscrosses various sections of both the north and south sections of Peng Chau. You'll see some interesting temples, evidence of the islands past thriving factories of the 20th-century, coastal areas, beaches, wetlands, interesting geological landmarks and an interesting local village in the centre of the island, near the main ferry pier.

    There are few eateries on Peng Chau as well as a Welcomme supermarket if you need a drink or snack during your visit. Note that ferries are pretty busy by late morning and returning to Central in mid-afternoon. Something to keep in mind if you prefer to travel during less busy and crowded times while we remain in the pandemic.

    A great day out and it is not too difficult to get to from central as there is a direct bus to get to the wetland park.

    The park is nicely done and the entrance fee is reasonable. Unfortunately there are a lot of big ants now and the park will not treat it. Make sure u bring an insect repellant with you. Food here is OK but do bring your own food or drinks.

    The hides is lovely. It is really a brilliant hiding place to cool yourself down and take pictures of birds. I can sit in the hides for ages provided there are no swarms of ants.

    Would definitely recommend.

    Which is: it’s an easily accessible shopping centre where there are many bargains to be had, especially when buying sportswear. Even the HUGE Taste on the bottom floor is worth seeing I think. Whilst the shops here might not be the most interesting, I’ve always found stuff that I needed (or just wanted, usually) that was worth buying.

    I enjoyed that it can be reached directly from the airport and can easily be acsessed with bus and MTR from the airport.
