Take a day trip to Lantau, The ferry takes you to the island where you visit a traditional fishing village, the Big Buddha and lunch at the Po Lin Monastery and the Ngong Ping Cable Car ride home to the bus terminal. This is a great day and the guides are very informative.

bring comfie shoes, you will want them. A beautiful area, that's been kind of turned into a Disney experience. Lots of places to spend some money and get a souvenir. There's also a gondola ride across the top of the island that will take you to a very busy outlet mall.

We took the ferry from Kowloon then a bus around the island. You feel like you are in a different world from Hong Kong. Life seems more simpler. All in all a nice trip.

Spent the day at Lantau Island - going over and back in the cable car - we upgraded to the crystal cabin (glass bottom floor) totally worth the upgrade!!! Beautiful island, with plenty to look at around the Buddha also. We had an amazing vegetarian lunch at the monastery - the best meal we had in Hong kong!! BRILLANT lots... More

Decided to visit Lantau Island under our own steam, not with a tour. Used the Hong Kong metro system (very efficient, clean, spacious, easy and cheap) to get to Lantau Island where we had hoped to catch the cable car up to the Giant Buddha. Unfortunately we picked one of the two days that it was closed for maintenance checks... More

We booked a day excursion that took us over on the ferry. Everything in Hong Kong is on time and this day was no exception. The island itself was peace and tranquility from a busy city close by. Beaches are lovely and while we had poor weather you can easily see how on a sunny day it would be beautiful.... More

Well worth the trip, the views from the Ngong Ping cable car are amazing and the Big Buddha is just stunning. The temple at the top of the hill is very cool. The "town" at the hill caters to the tourists, however it almost has a theme-park feel to it, not necessarily fitting the Big Buddha that's right beside it..... More

We stayed in the Silvermine Hotel on the island, and what a nice place to be. We had a room with seaviews and a short walk to the ferry, which we took every day to get into Hong Kong (20 mins). The island itself is small but very well adapted for everyone, shops and bars are very close to the... More
