How to get to Ngong Ping:
- By MTR – take the Tung Chung Line to Tung Chung station. Once you arrive at Tung Chung station, exit to Exit B and follow signs to Ngong Ping.
- By bus – there is a bus service as well, but the bus drops you off at a station that is about 10-15 minute walk to the cable car entrance for Ngong Ping, so I find that it’s more convenient to get to Ngong Ping by MTR. For details about the buses, click here.
