Situated at the foot of the Pearl River estuary, Tung Chung has long been a strategic location. The fort dates back to the Qing dynasty, with an inscription saying it was built in 1832. It became a naval headquarters in 1898, then turned into a police station and later a school.
The Tung O Ancient Trail has been the main connection between Tung Chung and Tai O for generations. You can enjoy views of the spectacular Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge as you follow the coastline to Tai O.
