Nam Sang Wai is a wetland area north of Yuen Long. It is ecologically important as a stopover for migratory birds. Do explore to appreciate the area and learn about the controversy over proposed development projects that either help or threaten the ecology of the wetland.
With a group of friends heading to Nam Sang Wai, we first took the MTR to Yuen Long Station. From Exit B, we walked across the major road to find our way to Tin Fung Bicycle Company to pick up our rental bicycles. Bike rental is HK$70 for the day. Tin Fung Bicycle’s address : Shop B, G/F, Lee Kwan Building, 37 On Lok Road, Yuen Long, website: http://www.yl.hk/ad/3808/
Our first destination was to cycle towards Nam Sang Wai Ferry Pier. We paid HK$8 per pax incl. the bike at the end of the short ferry 5 mins ride. It was quite an adventurous ride especially for young kids. There was a tofu dessert stall at the other side but we did not try it. From there, we followed the bicycle path for a short 5 to 10 minutes to this breathtaking view which Nam Sang Wai is known for.

We cycled around the area for about 2 hours including photo time.When we returned the rental bikes, the nice owner lady suggested we take the express bus back to HK island rather than the MTR.The bus stop was just a block away.To our delight, we passed byHang Heung, a local bakery known for their traditional Chinese cakes and managed to get some wifey cakes before catching the express bus back to Hong Kong Island.Relaxing half day outing.Highly recommended. If you can’t cycle, just join many others and walk there.
