We took the MTR subway and bought tickets offered solely to tourists (bring your passport) at a discounted rate. You must call before you leave (opens at 10h00) in case the cablecars are not operating due to bad weather. It started drizzling when we got there, so the views were not the best. Being Muslim, we had expensive halal food at Ebenezers. We took a bus to Tai O, but unfortunately didnt spot any white dolphins on the HK$ 20 boat trip which lasted 20 mins. The kids found the fishing village smelly and kept on saying eeeow, but it really was different to Hong Kong mainland.
