Highlights: The great nature, especially in the beginning of the section. The abandoned villa by the lake, Lung Tsai Ng Yuen was built by a rich businessman many years ago. Once it was a beautiful landscaped park, today it is overgrown and degraded but still kind of fascinating.

How to get there: Take any bus from Mui Wo to Ngong Ping or Tai O and get off at Fat Hwa Yuen and walk back to the start of section 5.

How to get home: You can either continue on section 6 to Tai O or walk back to Tai O Road through a service road going east (appx 2 km).

Good to know
Combine this section with section 6 to Tai O for easier access to get home again.
