“my son lives here so had the advantage of a resident to show me the sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

liked it all and food was great. Loved having a beer on waterfront and seeing the sunset. Dinner at night gave me a view of the Disney fireworks.

“Giant Buddha”

Very easy to get there on your own via ferry or metro and bus and nice get away from the city to see the Giant Buddha and monestary.

“Majestic Buddha and excellent shopping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The star attraction of Lantau island is of course the tian tan Buddha. However we did some unexpected shopping at the outlet mall thats right next to the subway. My wife went home with some Adidas shoes that were a whopping 80% off!

“big budda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

just do it yourself it cheaper, easy to get there as HK is a safe place and they are helpful. Ferry to Lantu and then a bus to Tai-o village and then back to see the budda and take the cable cars back and do some shopping in city gates outlet and then ferry back they sail till late.

“Lantau is Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you go to Lantau, I recommend taking the bus from Tung Chung and making a stop in Tai O Fishing Village where you can take a lovely boat tour and have a nice walk around before taking the next bus over to the Big Buddha and the beautiful monastery. The ticket price when we went was a great deal compared to taking the cable car up and down and just seeing one attraction. The Ngong Ping 360 deal is a total tourist trap so just get out of there as fast as you can!
