Place of Peace

If there is a bit of peace and quiet you wish to have away from the shopping and touring, this is the place to go. It is easy to get to on rapid transit and very nice.

the best was the crystal cabin, you should go to lantau island by crystal cabin as it is made of glass all around and the bottom too is made of glass. the view from the bottom of the cabin is amazing with forests, mountains and waterfalls, superrrrb

Easy to access from Kong Kong due to efficient transport system. Bought tickets before hand, huge queue in oppressive heat . Waited for over an hour before we could get on cable car, those without tickets waited longer. 15 minuet cable car ride with great views. Usual tourist shops /cafes at top. Big buddha impressive, not for those with poor... More

The island features various attractions: a cable care from Tung Chung with stunning views, the Big Buddha statue, the monastry next to it, numerous fishermens' villages, beaches and park trails. There are two main ways to get to the island: MTR to Tung Chung station and a ferry from Central to Discovery Bay or Mui Wo.It is a good idea... More

One of our favourite trips is to catch a ferry from Hong Kong Central to Mui Wo (Silvermine Bay). From there it is possible to take a bus ride to various parts of Lantau Island. We usually catch a 3M to Tung Chung. This takes a fascinating trip around tight corners and up and down several hills. Very little of... More

We got some waters and pastries before heading to the Island to save some cost for lunch, it was expensive food there. The Christal Cable car worthy to ride you can see the bottom glass floor of...

The trip takes about two hours from Hong kong/Kowloon area but worth it. The monastery is beautiful and the Buddha is amazing! The cable cars do not work if there are high winds etc but a bus is available to reach there.

exciting contrasts between the old and the new, rich exclusive shopping and poor street markets. I personally preferred the street markets and it's population.

It is easy to get to on the MTR and offers a change of pace from the city. There are some places to shop and get some A/C before/after you go up to the big buddha.
