A really full day, so start as early as you can manage -although bear in mind that the Ngong Ping 360 doesn't start running till 9 am on week-ends and 10 am on week days. In order to miss the queues to the gondola we decided to start the day at Tai O fishing village. We travelled by train to... More

this was my favorite sight while I was in Hong Kong. seeing the giant Buddha and the monastery was amazing. riding the cable car and seeing the natural scenery from way up high was incomparable. I would definitely do a tour to get there. Then staying to shop at the only outlet mall in Hong Kong.

A very enjoyable morning with a wonderful 20 minute ride on the cable car. This was the highlight of the trip. Make sure you face forward when returning from the village as you get the whole picture. The walk up to the budda gives you a cardiac workout at he same time.

We were collected promptly from our hotel in Kowloon at 08:15 and then driven to Hong Kong Island to meet our rep (Quinde) and catch the ferry to Lantau. The ferry ride took about 30 minutes where we were met by bus and driven to Cheung Sha Beach where we stopped for a comfort break and to take photos. It... More

To walk along the waterway of this isolated part of HK is a treat. I had never been until I picked a hotel that was here. I got to watch a nice sunset and the sunrise over the water. You can get this in many part of HK but because this is not jammed with people and cars it feels... More

Going to Lantau Island is a worthwhile trip. Riding the cable car gives you a fanatic view from above. The big Buddha is impressive.

We enjoyed a wonderful day on Lantau Island. Took the MTR From Kowloon station, about 35 minutes to Tung Chung. A center for many places to see, the Big Buddha, Tai O, and Mui Wo. Definitely a must on your what to see while in Hong Kong.

It is a lovely place to go and just escape for the day. We took the Cable car over to the Buddha which have us done great views. The Buddha village is very commercial now with shops and restaurants but we still enjoyed our time wondering about.
