Must see. Allow not less than half a day. Light was better in afternoon than morning for photography but then very early morning would be good too. Enjoy the tea ceremony in the tourist precinct outside Temple Gates. Worth taking the time to just relax and enjoy.

The weather was misty, but it was cold up there and the view is still spectacular. To go up you have to go inside the hall, we didnt and just went upstairs where it suppose to just go down.

It's one of the places you should visit in HK. Cable car ride is really worth it with great view. The buddha is really big and magnificent. There are many steps up to the buddha but it's worth going up.

My wife and myself really enjoyed the Big Buddha. The trip starts from the MTR, then the cable cars with the views, then the 200+ steps up to the temple and then the spiritual statue. Wow what an experience.

Like most big things it's worth the visit. The cable car up, with the glass floor of you can get it, is worth the trip but the queues can be very lengthy.

Make sure your early to avoid the masses. Suggest you buy the express ticket if lots of people before you. Great views and a cooler climate at the top. We took up a picnic lunch which meant we avoided the usual lunch bussle and could just relax

A place for your memory box, its high on the mountain which you take a cable car too so you need a head for heights, the temples are dotted around the mountain which have to be visited. Only thing to avoid is the overpriced eateries at the top of the cable car, just walk through them and get to the... More
