I wouldn't call this a "village" in the sense of a real living, breathing historical town. It is a tourist trap. That said, we still had fun. Nice shopping and eating. We took the sky tram back to HK and it was very fun. Definitely a must-see if you visit the Buddha.

Even if the queue to the cable car is long (you can pre-book on internet), it is worth to do it at least one way. Take the one with glass bottom even if it is more expensive. 15 minutes or so is the cable car tour. There is also a bus that take 65 minutes (nr 23, at the same... More

Ngong Ping is located in the mountains of China, so be prepared to be chilled if you arent accustomed to cold weather. I liked the long cable car ride. Lots of nature to see. The Ngong Ping village has a lot of people during peak season, try visiting this place off-season to truly experience nature and commune with the mountain... More

Cable car experience was good. Wind was rather big. Went up to Lantau Island to see the Big Buddha. Had a fruitful trip up.

What an engineering marvel. Done brilliantly, done beautifully. Bit expensive but worth the money. Make sure you take the glass bottom Crystal Cab

We got out there early (or so we thought), via the MTR, and was surprised by the huge crowds. It took about 1.5 hours to get on a standard gondola. But when we did what a fabulous view of the mountains, airport and islands. It is a great way to see another side of HK and certainly better than catching... More

This cable car ride and trip around the village was one of the highlights of our trip. The worst part was lining up for tickets for the cable car and then a second line to get on. We probably waited over an hour all up but if we'd bought our tickets online then we would have skipped the line to... More

This is my third time going to the Ngong Ping Village. I really liked the cable car and the boat ride in Tai O, the bad thing is that you have to wait for a really long time for a cable car on holidays, you should go there really early and then come back early so not much people will... More

I'm saying it's very good because I believe it is and I'm disappointed we didn't get to ride the cable car up to the Buddha. We rocked up to find it was closed for 2 days for maintenance. If only we'd checked their website, but hey we didn't know to. So my review serves to warn other travellers to check... More

We took one way up by crystal cabin and one way down by standard cabin. About 20 to 25 min ride. But we have to wait about 45 min we have to walk up 300 steps to the giant budha.
