Outdoor Infinity Pool in Hong Kong
I didn't bother waking up early for this. I woke up at 11am, took my time to get ready and ate a late breakfast. Met up with Russ at 1 PM at Tung Chung MTR station. Then we took a 45 minute bus ride to Tai O. Bought some pretty nasty South Korean beers called Blue Girl, ate another lunch in the fishing village before heading up to the pool. It was a short 45 minute hike. The last 10 minutes of the hike was pretty steep.
We didn't arrive at the pool until 3:30ish. There were a few people there, but they were all getting ready to leave. We stayed until almost sunset. I know. How romantic. The place is amazzzziinnggg. I can't describe it with words.
I've included pictures and directions on how to get there below. Check it out.
Take the MTR to Tung Chung station (Last stop on the orange line). Exit B. Walk straight through to the Bus terminal.
Find Bus #11. It comes every 20 minutes. Weekdays: $11.90HKD. Weekends/PH: $19 something. A pretty big mark up.
After you get off the bus. Turn around and you will a pier (there is only one). Just walk through it all the way to the end.
Go around and follow the shore line.
Follow the sign that says MAN CHEUNG PO. Keep on walking straight for about 30 to 40 minutes.
You will see a first set of stairs on your left. DO NOT FOLLOW THIS. Even though it says to Man Cheung Po. Keep on walking straight.
After about a 5 minute walk from the first set of staircase. You will see a second set of staircase without any signs on your left. Go up this one.
Another 15 minutes. You will see a blue house. Keep going and you will see this set of staircase. Keep on going up.
And you are there!!!
