Lovely little fishing village with many shops and seafood. Take a boat ride for lovely scenery or take a walk up the mountain to see the White Chinese Dolhins swim.

To get here, took bus 21 from Big Budha, runs every hour or so during weekdays and takes 20min. Went back to Tung Chung with bus 11 which runs every 15 and takes about 45min. Fishing village is nice and a trip back in time....More
