What you'll do and see

From the centre of Yuen Long, this leisurely ride to the seaside at Tuen Mun offers an encounter with Hong Kong’s countryside and new towns, taking in the area’s cultural heritage on cycle tracks almost all the way.

Upon arrival in Yuen Long town centre, students will collect a rental bike, which will be waiting for them, and join the cycle track in Yuen Long Town Centre. The group will do a circuit of the Nam Sang Wai wetlands and a ride on the Nam Sang Ferry and then head along the cycle path to Ping Shan heritage trail, where the Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery / Heritage Trail Visitors Centre is located. Students will explore the sites of historical and cultural importance, learning about the local folk culture along the way.

A few kilometres later, the group will arrive at Tuen Mun Cycling Entry / Exit Hub, where they can rest and re-energise with a drink and a snack. The group will continue at a leisurely pace and arrive at Hau Kok Tin Hau Temple and Fa Pau Exhibition Hall where they can immerse themselves in local culture. The group will have the opportunity to take in the rituals and scents of this ancient temple site at Tin Hau Temple Plaza, as worshippers pay respect to the popular sea goddess Tin Hau. Students will also see the extravagant floral paper fa pau at the adjacent Fa Pau Exhibition Hall.

The group will head to Wu Shan Recreation Playground, which is a dedicated cycling circuit, inviting students to take a spin and grab a cold drink before the final stretch to Butterfly Beach. Beyond the beautiful Butterfly Beach Park lie the sands and rolling waves of Butterfly Beach itself. After the scenic ride, students will drop off their bikes and have the opportunity to explore the park highlights and to reflect on the day’s cultural journey on the beach.
