Please, don't litter!

Hiking is about communion with nature. So please pickup after yourself. There's no excuse to leave plastic bags, water bottles or any rubbish on or around the trails; if you managed to bring it, you can manage to bring it back!

Transportation: MTR to Shau Kei Wan, Exit A3. Take NWFB bus #9 towards Shek-O, stop at To Tei Wan on Shek O Road. Return via same NWFB bus #9 in Shek-O which will bring you back to Shau Kei Wan.


MTR Shau Kei Wan, Exit A3. The bus terminus is right by the exit.

Take #9

Stop at To Tei Wan on Shek O Road. 
The start of Hong Kong trail Section 8 is right by the bus stop.

From that point, there's really no way to get lost; the path is well signed at every turn (follow the little hikers pictograms).

After about 2 hours, you'll arrive at Tai Long Wan beach. You can walk towards Shek-O or take the red minibus that will get you there. From Shek-O, bus #9 will take you back to Shau Kei Wan.
