is amazing. Lantau Island is hilly, with twisting narrow roads and beautiful. By all means, take a small bus day tour. See the Taoist fishing village and ride the cable car.

We took the sky train (glass bottomed sky cars) across the bay to Lantau Island which is where the Big Buddha resides. You can see it as you approach and it is truly magnificent.

This is well worth the visit. Need a full day to visit. Take plenty of time to enjoy the atmosphere.

take the MTR to the last stop on Lantau, past the airport - there are restaurants, a big outlet mall full of mainlanders shopping their heads off, and an aerial tram ride way out to the big buddha. the views make the ride woth it even if you just turn around and come back

The second place to visit after viewing the Tian Tan Buddha at Ngong Ping...a lazy quiet fishing village on a weekday...many shops in the alley way selling sun-dried salted fish, cuttlefish, scallops etc...interesting BBQ seafood snacks along the walk around the village.
