"Taxis from the airport to anywhere in Lantau are relatively fast and pleasant, but only light-blue taxis are allowed on the island. Ask at the reception desk at the airport taxi stand to call for a light-blue car for you. The more common red and green ones are prohibited to go to Lantau." This has either changed, or is largely ignored. We asked for a taxi to Tung Chung at the airport hotel and got a red taxi, which was happy to take us there. At the foot of the cable car we encountered a line of red taxis. The first declined to take us to the airport when we asked, but another agreed. Does anyone have more details or similar experiences?

The Lantau page needs expanding and I would suggest that it should be merged with the Discovery Bay page.

Discovery Bay has its merits but, for tourists, this middle-class housing area is perhaps of less interest than its own special wikitravel page suggests. Without wishing to offend the residents of DB, I would feel guilty about advising tourists to spend time in DB when there are some fantastic places to visit elsewhere on Lantau.

I agree with merging the DB page into this one, and redirecting the DB page. --Inas 20:06, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


Mui Wo page[edit]

I don't know why we need a separate page for such a small place. We spent a lot of time before sorting out the HK pages and so many pages were merged.

We are struggling to get enough information into the Lantau page, so I would recommend that the Mui Wo stuff is kept on Lantau. What do others think?Herngong

Yes of course Mui Wo should be a part of Lantau. But I don't see a separate page for Mui Wo anywhere? --globe-trotter 22:57, 2 November 2010 (EDT)
