Tucked away in the greenery of south Lantau, transport to Tai O is by ferry or bus. Practically, the best way to get to Tai O is to take the MTR to Tung Chung Station and then the number 11 bus from Tung Chung Town Centre for a total journey of around 1hr 10mins, if the connections fall kindly. Alternatively, the ferry from the Central Ferry Pier (in front of the IFC Mall) connects to Mui Wo on Lantau Island, where you can catch the number 1 bus from the bus terminal. While slightly slower, the ferry connection offers great panoramas of Lantau and back onto Hong Kong Island.
