Located at the west of Castle Peak at with an unimpeded view to the west coast, Lung Kwu Tan together with Pak Nai, is the best place to see sunset in Hong Kong.

However, the place is also far away from the city. Tourists need to take MTR to Tuen Mun Station. Take Bus K52 at Tuen Mun Town Center to get there. Since there is only one bus going there, after sunset, there might be a long queue waiting for the bus to come back.

Lung Kwu Tan is also a very historical place. The well-known Emperor’s Cave is located behind Lung Kwu Tan Village. It is said that Emperor Gong of the Southern Song Dynasty escaped to the south and hid in this cave when he fled from the invading Mongolians.

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
