    The PTES agrees: MTR to Sheung Shui then green minibus #44.

    Your other option is 64K KMB bus to Kam Sheung Road KCR (now MTR), then the train to Tuen Mun

    PTES says your way is quickest at 80 minutes.

    Depends which part of Tun Mun you want to go to. It’s a big place.

    Check the East Rail Line to Hung Hom.

    MTR JPlanner

    That’s 27 minutes.

    You could then pick up the West Rail line for Tun Mun – approx 37 mins – so just over an hour in all, relatively comfortable and hassle free.

    so it seems they spend all this money linking east and west kowloon and will be spending even more money linking hk to guangzhou but nothing at all to link east and west NT...more than an hour is incredible

    thanks guys

    Unfortunately (or not depending on your point of view) there's a large chunk of country park between Tai Po and Tuen Mun. The shortest route by road is about 40km (25 miles) so an hour by public transport doesn't seem too bad to me.

    well i am pro-environment, though that sort of thing doesn't seem to stop the estab usually e.g. hk-guangzhou link.

    This is the best way I think. Bus 64K from Tai Po to Kam Sheung is about 35 mins followed by a pretty speedy train journey to Tuen Mun.

    I do this a lot but usually only go as far as Long Ping - which takes about 5 minutes from Kam Sheung. Tuen Mun isn't that much further, timewise.
