The Inspiration lake is an artificial lake inside the Inspiration Recreation Center. Not many people (even Hongkong citizens) may aware the existance of this quiet and relaxing place. This recreation center was funded by the Hongkong Government and managed by Disneyland. Boat rowing or pedalling activity can be carried out in the lake (rental fee will be imposed). The fountain pattern is very pretty. We took E34 bus from Yuen Long and changed to R8 bus to reach there. Then took R8 bus to Disneyland (front compound) then took MTR to Tung Chung to visit the factory outlets.
