“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.

“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!
