    Lantau Prison

    hi,

    does anyone know the name of that prison that you pass on the way from Mui Wo to the Big Buddha. It is the white one on the left of the road with great views, about 10 mins outside of Mui Wo.

    Appreciate the feedback thanks!

    From Wikipedia:

    There are six prisons on Lantau Island: Chi Ma Wan Correctional Institution, Chi Sun Correctional Institution (formerly the Chi Ma Wan Drug Addiction Treatment Centre), Ma Mo Ping Prison, Tong Fuk centre west of Tong Fuk, Sha Tsui Detention Centre and the maximum security Shek Pik Prison,

    most of them are on the south side, but possibly Ma Mo Ping/Tong Fuk Centre or Chi Sun/Chi Ma Wan...Sha Tsui (Shek Pik) and Shek Pik Prison are below the reservoir you cross to get to Buddha
