I visited Lantau Island on my own, having a free day from business. I was staying on Hong Kong Island. It is well worth a visit. You can get there via ferry or the MTR (underground train line) and then the cable car. I chose the MTR and cable car route. This is quite easy. From Central (MTR station red... More

Don't miss the Lantau Trail, as most tourist head to the Buddha and forget another jewel of this island. Lo Kei Wan, for example, epitomises the pleasant camp site of the Lantau Trail Section 9. According to old fishermen, Lo Kei Wan was once a haunt of pirates. Now, you will find this place a great reward near the end... More

I'd really recommend spending a day in Lantau Island if you have the time. I'd suggest going on a week day in the morning, as weekends can be a bit crowded, especially if you want to take the cable car. I went Sunday morning around 11am and the line for the cable car took me about 1 hr 45 mins... More

We took the cable car to the monastery and had a wonderful day. It is 7 km long and the views are amazing. Even when lines are long, they move you along quickly. It was less crowded than HK and a unique and enjoyable experience. We will recommend it to any friends travelling to Hong Kong.

Quite and serene place to spend a afternoon. The cable car ride is expensive but worth the view of the city. Suggest you take glass bottom cable car and book online as there are long queue to purchase tickets. Also there are separate queue for standard and glass cabins.

We took a day tour with Buffalo Tours and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The toilet equipped ferry from HK to Lantau Island was clean and fast and its large windows afforded excellent views. Our guide was informative, helping us to understand where we were and what we were visiting. Our first stop, Cheung Sha Wan beach, had a swimming enclosure,... More
