  • There are many good hiking trails on Lantau Island including a couple that link Mui Wo with Discovery Bay. These are easy to follow, well marked trails that you can also reference through Hiking...

  • not really worth the trip to go to this lousy island with it's over priced and underserved restaurants and non-smiling habitants, but i know some people who prefer to stay there while they are in hong kong on bussiness, and not in the big busy ugly city. personally i am disgusted iqually from this island and the hong kong city. both are over crowded and empty places.
  • This cable car ride is much more than just a ride to the top and back. There is an entire village up here with additional tours. Lots of shops restaurants and even a 7-11 store. I would recommend busting this attraction while here. Be sure to get the crystal car for at least one way if your tour. This means that the cable car has a glass (crystal) floor so that you can look straight down at the water and the hillside below you. It was a great feeling!
