an nice island with green area away from HK's busy life

I often stay at the Novotel City Gate when I am in HK for 24 hours. I really like this island that offers a lot of activities in a more natural environment than the center of HK.

Back in the 1990, as a resident of Discovery Bay, I trekked up the highest point in the Lantau Island and was rewarded with beautiful views of the forested areas, long sandy beaches, fishing villages and other calming features of the largest Hong Kong island. On a recent trip, made by taxi from Tung Chung metro station, I saw several... More

I love Lantau Island. We took a yatch here. The island has some really peaceful parts with a lot of nature, but also offer attractions if you are looking for something to do. Both the Po Chi Lam monastry and Disneyland on this island is worth the visit.

The highlight of the day was the cable car ride taking 25 minutes across the island up to the monastery. We took a tour and while expensive meant we avoided the Hugh wait for the cable car. The museum under the Budda well set out and the lunch very tasty and plentiful. The visit to the fishing village included a... More

It is so easy to get there as the train takes you right to where you need to go. The cable car ride is amazing regardless of the fact that it was foggy and we could not see anything but it is worth it. The system is very efficient, the cars are clean and the views amazing.

Much less crowded than Hong Kong Island. A beautiful lush island. The airport and Disneyland are located here as well as the Big Buddha which was the main purpose of our visit. There are wild buffalo wandering around. The Buddha and monastery were impressive. If you have time I would recommend spending some time on the island.
