Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Tung Chung is currently one of the latest generation of new towns which is located on the north-western coast of Lantau Island.  The island itself is at the mouth of the Pearl River, a location reflected in the identities of those just visible urban areas: Hong Kong Island to the east, Macau across the Pearl River to the west, and Shenzhen in mainland China to the north. 

This new town is connected to the rest of Hong Kong via massive infrastructure projects. An expressway links the rest of Hong Kong through Tsing Ma Bridge and North Lantau Expressway.  Public transport options are abundant - bus, trains, ferries are all within walking distance within the new town.  The Hong Kong International Airport is just about 10 minutes traveling time from Tung Chung.  A gondola lift - Ngong Ping 360 can take travellers up to the Monastery in Ngong Ping.  As one of the long-awaited billion dollar projects, construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is due to complete by 2015 and will run from the west of Tung Chung to Zhuhai and Macau.
