Tung Chung, Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Tung Chung was one of the places where we frequented in Hong Kong before we went to the Philippines during our vacation in May 2009. When we went back to Hong Kong, we again frequented Tung Chung for shopping and eating.

Tung Chung is a new town in Lantau Island which was formerly a rural and fishing village around Tung Chung Wan. Tung Chung was developed as part of the Hong Kong Airport Core Programme when the Chek Lap Kok Hong Kong International Airport was built.

Tung Chung was just about ten minutes traveling time from Chek Lap Kok Hong Kong International Airport and about thirty minutes from Kowloon and Hong Kong Island via MTR from MTR Tung Chung Station. Traveling time with the bus took a little bit longer though.

There were a lot of things to do in Tung Chung but we had limited time in Hong Kong as it was just a stopover. But we did not forget to visit Ngong Ping Village to see the Big Buddha, and when it comes to food, we definitely did not forget Yum Cha.
