The end of the trip to the seaside between Section 7 and Section 11 marks the beginning of the last leg of the Lantau Trail.  It takes you through the jungle and up the mountain to admire the beauty of the bay of Lantau Island from another angle ― Pui O Wan, which is filled with never-ending streams of holiday-makers, on the west and the tranquil Chi Ma Wan on the east, encircling and isolating Shap Long San Tsuen – a striking contrast to the cityscape of Hong Kong Island on the horizon.  Although the farm has been desolate for a long time, the buffalos that return to the wild remind people of the idyllic setting in days gone by.  The final part leads down the slope to the heart of Mui Wo, which is easily accessible by public transport. Throughout history, Mui Wo has undergone tremendous changes – as early as the Ming Dynasty, it was already settled by farmers, followed by a period of mining in the nearby Silver Mine Bay; in the 1930s, it gradually developed into a resort town that still bustles with life as people come for the seafood at weekends.  Yet there is one thing that never changes – the hiking trail makes for memorable and relaxing experience.
