Lantau Island is almost tropical. We had lunch at the monestary and it was just beautiful. The lunch is vegan and there is no alcohol but it was all amazing. Lantau is definitely worth a visit.

Missed visiting this place the other 2 times I was in HK due to tight schedules. Had a lot of time to spare with my family and got a great time at the island. The people were friendly and met some locals who gave us good advice for toddler friendly restaurant. The sights was beautiful and gave us a different... More

We spent a day touring the island and monastery. I'd suggest arrival at the monastery early in the day, as the crowds are less, and the atmosphere more calming. The vegetarian lunch was quite good at the monastery also. Well worth the trip out from the city - you can take the MTR subway train directly to the Tung Chung... More

We enjoyed our trip here. Tai O fishing village, is a sight to see and the Giant Budda was amazing. We enjoyed a delicious vegetarian meal at the Monastry.

Lantau island is quite different to HK island and Kowloon. We went on a pre paid day tour including pick up from and return to hotel in Kowloon. We went on a mini bus to a beach on the south side, into the mountains, to the Tai O fishing village on stilts on the river, the short boat trip, the... More

Lantau seemed much less frenetic than H.K. Island. Proximity to Disney land would be a plus for many.

Visited a Taoist temple and Tai O fishing village was like stepping back 500 years! Walking through the local fishing markets was a neat experience.

We just spent the day on Lantau, visiting the Giant Buddha, the Po Lin Monastery and the Tai O fishing village. I felt all were worth the time and effort to get there by subways, ferries and buses. Make sure to walk behind those fishing boats so you don't miss out on the fresh and dried fish market. We ate... More

Whilst on Lantau Island a must see attraction is going to the fishing village at Tai O. Taking a boat trip through the village with all of the houses on stilts is totally fascinating. Venturing further out on the boat to see the pink dolphins (if you're lucky) in the open sea is an added bonus. Wandering through the land... More

Lovely day trip even when the weather was less than perfect. Stopped at many little towns on the coast as we were traveling by bus. Very accessible.
