A must see attraction if not for the Buddha it self which was amazing also the views from up there. But mainly for the cable car ride which is 5 km long and absolutely stunning. Gets really busy in any sort of Chinese holiday period so you can take a buss up and cable car down. Don't go to HK... More

I liked the fact that relatively close to the city you have such a retreat of serenity and peace and quiet. The cable cart trip is a nice journey as well.

If you're not on a budget get the express pass. Glass bottom is cool, but could be skipped. Wonderful temples. Big Buddah is a sight to behold. Very happy w gorgeous tram ride and the monastery.

Very busy when we went (just after Chinese New Year), but definitely worth it. The large staircase up to Buddha isn't great if you struggle with health or accessibility issues, but I'm pretty sure there's a little shuttle bus to the top. The monastery and temple up in the village are exceptional. Cable car ride across Lantau is incredible, but... More

If you go here, don't forget to visit Tai O fishing village and take a boat tour. Well worth a visit. There is plenty to see in and around the big buddah area. I highly recommend a guided tour, my friend and I had a free on that came with our ticket on the cable car to the Island. If... More

We took the N360° cable car to go up the the village (carefull here, we booked online and somehow booked the ticket for just going down, not up. But the problem was quickly solved by a nice lady). Approx. 20 minutes later we arrived at the village, which is nice and head off to see the big buddha. Everything is... More

We went up to Lantau via the MTR and cable car. The queue for the cable car was massive as it was New Year but and we had to wait about an hour to travel up to the Buddha. However when there the Statue is awesome and the Monastery is interesting and very beautiful. The huge amount of burning incense... More

My friends and I went to the Big Buddha on a foggy day and it was not great. It takes a long time to get to and we could barely even see the buddha from the bottom of the steps. On a clear day I'm sure it is much better, but I still think it is worth going to and... More

After taking the cable car up, it was fun walking around the place. Climbing up the steps to the Big Buddha was a little challenging, requiring stops along the way. Amazing sights when you get on top.
