There is a way out to Repulse Bay Road to the right of Tsin Shui Wan Au.
It is a well-marked and faily easy walk with a bird's eye view over Repulse Bay. The British Style Stone Bridge is well worth looking.
Because of the recent robbery cases, we walked with extra care but a scream from nowhere still freaked us out. Watching two suspicious men carrying three bags on our way out, we hurried to the Tai Tam Road where some people were picnicking over there.
