This was a fairly relaxed ¾ day tour that incorporated lots of different things. Firstly, after collection from the hotel, a ferry ride to Lantau Island, then a coach ride to a lovely local beach (and toilets), then onto a fishing village with a very short boat ride to view the houses on stilts followed by a further drive to...

However- as all best laid plans are- it went wrong due... More

We returned on the weekend and did the cable car trip to the big buddha and the Po Lin Monastery. It was well worth returning, the Ngong Ping village was a delight.... More
