TUEN MUN

With the rolling green mountains on one side and the sea on the other, Tuen Mun may well be the jewel of the New Territories. Residents are spoilt for choice by the district’s abundance of natural resources, cultural heritage, public facilities... oh, and their direct ferry link to Macau. Fancy a day at the beach? Tuen Mun’s got six. Are you a bit of a car enthusiast? Check out the Gold Coast Motor Festival. Are you a nut for nature? Where do we start… take a hike, find a reservoir, or visit the EcoPark to swot up on recycling. If you’re looking for a more spiritual experience, there’s the Hau Kok Tin Hau Temple, devoted to the Chinese goddess of the sea, or the Taoist Ching Chung Koon Temple, a popular spot for residents to pay their respects to their ancestors during certain festivals. Buddhist places of worship include the enormous Miu Fat Monastery, or the gorgeous and historical Tsing Shan Monastery. For the more indecisive visitor, there’s the Sam Shing Temple, which celebrates deities from three faiths: Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism! If you’re peckish after all that worshipping, head on over to the Sam Shing seafood market across the street, where you can pick fresh fish and crustaceans to be cooked however you like it.
