This is a great hike, though I did it in reverse from disco to tung Chung. I think I would do it the other way next time though as the MTR ride back to central isn’t nearly as relaxing as the ferry ride from Disco Bay to central. Although, getting the steepest part done first and spending the last 2 thirds going down hill to Tung Chung was nice. The stretch from Tung Chung MTR to the trail head is on he sea wall, between the airport and the MTR line and there’s not a bit of shade. There are lots of Go Bee bikes around though, so you could potentially rent one and bike that bit. Setup the app first tho and be prepared for a $400 hkd deposit plus however much credit you want to load, if you haven’t used GoBee bikes before Otherwise bring an umbrella and sunscreen.

Gear: sun screen, umbrella, lots of water, trekking poles with hard tips attached for hard packed dirt, if you have them, Lunch or a large snack.
