Cable car and tourist village was excellent, pity about the smog as limited scenic outlook! Pity about the length of queues for tickets and to await entry to a cabin.

What I didn't realize was how far the Big Budha actually is. The cable car is roughly 30 minutes long which seems liked an eternity. After all this time to get there (long MTR ride, walk to the cable car, cable car ride, walk along the island, the many steps to get to Big Budha), we realized the intense fog... More

Preferably visit Tai O on the weekend if one needs to see the bustling activity on the quaint fishing town. Visit any of the low-key restaurants and the seafood is about 50% off the main centres in HK, or Lamma Island. The fishing port is also a launchpad to spot the pink dolphin. Tai-O is about 45 minutes from Tung-Chung... More

If you made to Lantau Island to see the Buda, which is a nice place to visit, go beyond and explore the many places around the island. My preferred destination was the village of Tai O with the food market and the amazing experience of learning how the fisherman live - a cultural shock, an eye opening experience, humbling. To...

We took the ferry from central to the Silver-mine Bay. We took bus to Tai O. We visited the small museum to review the history of Tai O(was then, a salt producing village). While passing through the small bridge, we saw boats carrying tourists to see the white dolphines. We took noodle lunch in a coffe shop at the water-side.(quite... More
