Our trip to Lantau Island included Tian Tan Buddha, the Wisdom Path, the tea plantation, Po Lin Monastery and Tai O village. I recommend that you reserve an entire day for this. We went to Tung Chung by subway and when we arrived at Ngong Ping Cable Car we took the Crystal cabin to go to Lantau. We had bought... More

Definitely take the cable car ride to the island. The views along the way are very scenic. The island has a large Buddha and is a great backdrop for photographs.

There have already been hundreds of reviews of this island here on Trip Advisor, so I really won't be able to offer that much insight into Lantau that will differ from erstwhile postings. For certain, Lantau is worth visiting, for its hilltop-straddling Big Buddha, quaint (yet a little rough around the edges) seaside villages, and surprisingly-mountainous interior scenery are all...

The cable cars were exciting and scary at the same time. We knew it would be high, but wow that was high. (The water part was fun lol) Not to be missed!

We visited this place because we wanted to relax from busy Hongkong shopping.It is cheaper to go there from tsim tsa tsung by boat/pantun (s/p) or ship . We managed to see bhudda ,and ride cable cars and so on . Its worth going there though the queue was very long as it was unplanned trip..

Take a trip to Lantau Island, go on the glass bottom cable car but book prior to your visit if you want to avoid the very long lines. Well worth a visit....take the time to go.

My friend and I recently did a half day tour with Splendid Tours to Lantau Island to see the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and Tai O fishing village. This was our favourite day trip. The local tour guide was fantastic, he was very knowledgable and engaging. The afternoon began with a bus ride to Lantau from Kowloon, to the... More

I did this day trip recently on a Saturday morning. My best decision was to go ahead and start early. I was on my way at 9am and the cable car line was about 10 min. The views from the cable car are great. I took the crystal floor and in the end I'm not sure it was worth it... More
