Mui Wo has a Base Camp

That stretch of road where the Hong Kong Jockey Club is used to be a bit of a dead zone but seems to have gotten exciting recently. Village Bakery is opening soon (looks like yesterday was only a trial run). And now we have Lantau Base Camp, one of those "why didn't we think of it earlier" shops catering to mountain bikers and hikers.

Shopowner Jeremy is really nice and chatty and he lives in Pui O, so he's familiar with most of the trails around Lantau South.

Non-residents can leave their bags in the shop (for a HK$15 fee) and go hiking without having to hump the extra baggage around. After they're done, they can just pick it up and head for the ferry.
