Take the cable car with a glass floor, the views are stunning. Book in advance on the web so you jump the lines. Visit the Budha. We then took a bus to Tai O, but check the timetable because they are not frequent. For HKD 25 a person we took the boat tour and saw the pink dolphins. The another... More

Went there to see the Big Buddha and had the time of my life. The tip is a must do. Go early and plan all day there. Take the cable cars and you must get a glass bottom. It's worth the extra $. This is a must do trip if you go to HK.

We had a great day on the Ngong Ping aerial cable car to Lantau to see the Big Buddha. Beautiful views on the tram and amazing first look at the Buddha. The village up there has plenty of eating places, souvenier shops play area for children. The manicured gardens lovely. I personally couldn't walk up the steps to the Buddha... More

Around Hong Kong there are more than 235 outlying islands. Many uninhabited or home to small communities but Lantau is one of the major islands. It is full of fascinating contrasts and worth setting aside a half day visit. Start your exploration at the Outlying Islands Ferry Piers in front of the IFC and catch one of the cheap and... More

you cannot visit Hong Kong without going to Lantau Island! There you you have the big buddha, amazing hikes, camping places by the beach and a huge outlet mall. Take two or three days to visit this island.. you won't regret it!

We stayed on Lantau Island for 3 weeks, the beaches are stunning, the people very friendly & the back drop spectacular. There is a fantastic Seafood court in Mui Wo & a great pub 'The China Bear'. The feral Water Buffalo wandering the roads & beaches give a definite feel of being in the wilderness & the Island can be... More

Tai O allows you to see Hong Kong from a diferent perspective, known as Venice of the Orient. Clean and well-maintained traditional houses in the sea are homes of the fishermen. Some of them also serve as shops and stores. Try the traditional Hakken glutinous rice balls, both savory and sweet. Look at how shrimp paste is made though you... More
