This definitely is in the top five things to do/visit when in Hong Kong. Recommended to check out Lantau Island in the morning so that it's not yet crowded with tourists. Get here via the Ngong Ping cable car, a 25-minute ride that gives visitors a breathtaking view of the HK airport, the bay and the mountains. Once on the... More

The giant Buddah is worth the hike, but Start your trip with the gondola with the glass floor....just beautiful. We stopped at the temple, wonderful photo opportunities. The floral and food offerings were works of art. Food here wasn't as diverse, but this is a feast for the eyes.

This is a must for anyone. Magnificent views from the cable car and well worth it. The experience at the top of the mountain once you arrive is fabulous.

The view via cable car was great. Can see the Hkia from the top with planes taking off and landing every few minutes. Budget about 2 hours to visit the village. Try the tau foo fah ( sweet tau foo dessert) and black sesame dessert.

I loved my trip to Lantau island and I took a day tour to the island which allowed me to skip the ticket lines on the gondolas and also provided a bus service to the budha site. Just an amazing place, a monastery and shrine, very much worth the trip! Walking around the monastery grounds was very special, and the... More
