The SpaceNot many places where you can enjoy a peaceful rural setting and at the same time have easy access to all that wonderful and dynamic Hong Kong has to offer. Guest AccessWhole of ground floor apartment and outside patio on ground floor. Interaction with GuestsRupert & Fanny live on second floor and will help you with your stay. For details about these two adventurers who live upstairs go to: (URL HIDDEN) The NeighborhoodMui Wo (梅窩 Plum Nest by my translation ) is also called Silvermine Bay and is a traditional fishing where the most discerning Hong Kong residents live. Getting AroundThere is a ferry timetable available from Central (No.6) ferry pier and Mui Wo ferry pier and also online. From Tung Chung there is a number 3M bus to Mui Wo. Also, there are blue Lantau taxis that can be booked by telephone call. There is bike hire in Mui Wo village at several shops and water sports hire centers from Pui O beach and Lower Cheung Sha beach. Kite surfing lessons are available. During the spring (South Easterly winds) there is paragliding off Sunset Peak on Lantau to those with suitable license and equipment ... Other Things to NoteHong Kong has a sub tropical climate and can be very hot and humid, very exciting during a typhoon or black rainstorm, but often enjoys warm and sunny days, especially during late summer and autumn. Winters are short and can be a little chilly on occasion. There are hundreds of islands and Lantau Island is the largest island in the territory of Hong Kong SAR. Whilst people may be aware of the tall skyscrapers and dense crowds, few realize that Hong Kong has so many mountains, country parks and beautiful coastline. Although Hong Kong is one of the world’s metropolis, out of the total 1 108 square kilometres of land, about three-quarters is countryside. Scenically, Hong Kong has a great deal to offer: a landscape rising from sandy beaches and rocky foreshores to heights of almost 1 000 metres, woodlands and mountain ranges covered by open grassland and a variety of scenic vistas rarely, if ever, matched in so small a territorial unit.
