Nice walk away from the crowd and an invitation to go further along the trails down to the shore and the Pacific ocean.

On our honeymoon, my wife and I headed out early on the underground to the bottom of the gondolas, where we met no lines and an easy jump onto the gondolas for the 4km ride up to Po Lin monastery and the Big Buddha. We decided to upgrade to a Crystal gondola, which was fantastic standing on the glass bottom...warning,... More

This is essentially a few shops around the end of the cable car. Only purpose is to give you somewhere to walk through on the way to the monestary. All tourist souveneir shops (and not that nice) and a cinema

On our second morning in Hong Kong to the train to Ngong Ping 360 cable car. The process was extremely easy, tickets were purchased and the queue to the gondolas took less than 30 minutes. The cable way is approximately 4 km fantastic with fantastic views of the bay, Hong Kong, Kowloon, the Hong Kong airport and the budha. For... More

Well worth the effort going to besides the tourist trap shops. Enjoyed the surroundings and a good walk to the giant budda statue. We had a mix of a day with weather. We got to the top before it started to rain and the fog rolled in. Couldn’t be bothered with the shops, more tourists traps. We were just there... More

The cable car up from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping is great. There a views across the hills and you can see the Big Buddha in the distance. The town has a few shops but nothing special.

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.
