Be prepared to exercise patience when queuing for the cable car, however, once on, it is worth it for the absolutely stunning views. If your budget allows, try to purchase a day pass which will get you on the cable car (we were in a 'crystal cabin' - with glass bottomed floor), a bus to the Tai O fishing village,... More

There are a few tourism sites located in Lantau Island, from Disneyland, Ngong Ping, Wisdom Path,Tai O fishing Village and more. If you want to experience a great view from above you can ride a cable car for about half hour, beside cable car there is also bus to reach Ngong Ping. Well, I experienced cable car during transition from... More

Loved the tram and the buddha and the fishing village but it was a little hard to move around the island sometimes. The public transit seemed to take longer than it was supposed to

Easy access to the island via the Subway and only about 25 minutes. If you go alone beware the queue for the chair lift ride. About 30 minutes ride but goes quickly as you view the sites and watch the planes come and go at the airport. Lots of shopping at the hill top village with a good climb up... More

This is a hilly green oasis on the outskirts of an over crowded city. The waterfalls, beaches and mountains are lovely. It was too hot to do much walking but the hikes would be great in a cooler time. Take the local buses and do go to Tai O fishing village. Very interesting with its stilt houses and fish market....

We took cable car from Tung Chung MTR station and I must say the cable car ride itself was an amazing experience. It goes through a valley with some amazing views. The Big Buddha statue is really magnificent and it required climbing 200+ steps to reach near the statue. We took a snacks coupon which allowed us to visit the... More

Nice day trip or 1/2 day trip just depends on how much time you want to spend on the island. We did the cable car to see the Big Buddha and spent a few hours there, then took the bus to Tai O the fishing village. It was great to get out of the city and see a different side... More

Our itinerary was two days at Hong Kong Disney then one week in the city (Mong Kok). Lantau is closer to the airport and Disney, so we decided to visit Lantau after our first two days at Disney. It was only 2-3 stops on the MTR (subway) from Disney. It would probably be 30-45 minutes from the city. Tung Chung... More

Take a ferry from central to Mui Lo and you wouldn't know you are in Hong Kong. You step off the ferry into a different world. The pace is slower and you are in a tropical paradise.(well almost)Lovely place .Well worth a visit.
