What To Do
The center of this area is the Pop Corn Mall. I still have not figured why its called this; you let me know when you do.
It’s a residential area, so just take walks and enjoy the beauty and peace of the area. There’s also an area down by the waterfront to take walks as well. If you are so inclined, you can take the rail into Hong Kong proper.
You may also take some time to visit the Nan Lian Gardens a little under five miles away.
