The phoenix trail is one of the best and famous place to watch sunrise in Hong Kong.
Normally you will start at 0:00 mid-night at Tung Chung MTR station. Get prepared at the 7-11 there then take a taxi to the starting point. You will have to walk in darkness with torch for 3 hours and get to the top of the Phoenix mountain at around 4am. Then you can take some snacks or even bring hot water up there to make some cup noodles.
After watching the sunrise, you can take either the hard but short way down, or the long but easier way. If you still have the stamina, you can take the hard way and walk for 4-5 hours back to Tung Chung City.
If you are not experienced in hiking at night, you can go on the days which are public holidays in Hong Kong like 1st October. There will be many visitors going together along the way and will take care each other.
