Hike in Hong Kong: Getting to Mui Wo and Lantau Trail Section 1

There are a few ways to get to Mui Wo From Central. By MTR to Tung Chung and take New Lantau Bus 3M or take a direct Ferry from Central Pier 6. I decided to take the direct Ferry and the timetable for the Ferry to Mui Wo can be found at First Ferry website.

To get to Central Ferry Pier 6, just walk along the elevated bridge that connects directly into Central area including IFC and MTR station. You will see the directional sign:

Reached the end of the bridge, walk down the stairs to ground floor:

Follow the directional sign to Pier 6 to Mui Wo:
