Tung Chung, the only town in an island outside HK that can be reached by Mtr:). it is a nice place for a getaway at lantau (eg to ngong ping, tai o, discovery bay), and easily reached in just under 30 minutes for central / HK mtr. Will highly recommend taking the ngong ping 360 cable car, as can see... More

This place is where you end with the subway If you want to visit the gigant Buddha. Most people pass Tung Chung quickly to get from the train station to the cable cars and only see the hyper new shops and banks and high rise buildings. Not very nice. But looking beyond that there are some nice places that i... More

Don't waste your time, nothing interesting to see there. Just an old fort abandonned with a lot of dump and a basket court. This site isn't well preserved at all and is located behind some weird buildings that makes it unable to see the fort from the street.

Tung Chung to Tai O (a fish village): - Nice pleasant walk of around 15 km (counting from the MTR station) along the coast. - Several ups and downs, highest point at less than 80m. - Excellent site for plane spotting: both landing and take off. - Clean and equipped toilets along the route. - Food stalls available too. -...

Tung Chung has grown enormously since the new HKIA opened in 1998. When you see pictures of the Tung Chung area from the early to mid-1980's with rice paddies, it's difficult to believe that the development could be so quick. Tung Chung being at the end of the Tung Chung MTR line, it's easily accessible from HK Island and Central.... More

Tung Chung centre as you arrive is the hub at the end of the swift new MTR connection. Links to cable car and buses to all points on the island all of course cheap between 10 to 17HK$ per route and all frequent. As a destination it has a huge retail outlet mall complex. Genuine brands and bargains compared to... More

It is special to see those "bomb" site. The building there is very old. you can't see them in other places in HK easily. IT is just a small area but interesting enough to explore.
