Since it was still so early in the morning, I took the alternate route back to Hong Kong: a bus to the Lantau village of Mui Wo and then a ferry ride to Central. The bus ride cost 16 Hong Kong dollars, and was a pleasurable drive with different scenery than we saw coming from Tung Chung to the monastery. In Mui Wo, also known as Silvermine, there wasn't too much to see while I waited for the ferry. Supposedly there is a waterfall not far from town, but none of the locals seemed to know its whereabouts. The ferry only cost 10.5 Hong Kong dollars and, unlike the Lamma ferry, had a place to sit outdoors for taking pictures. But the hazy weather was even worse out on the harbor, and I was downright cold by the time we landed at the ferry station in Central.
