Totally worth the trip! More than the Buddha statue itself, the cable car ride going there was totally worth it. Have gone on several of these cable car rides from Seoul to Cape Town to Genting but this one tops them all! Awesome views of the airport, the seas and the big Buddha! Don't miss this one!

We had a great time there but better to visit on a day without high heat and humidity. The combo ticket of sky ride, bus, and Tai O boat tour was interesting and worth the price. The scenery and photo ops are magnificent, and the airport view from the sky ride was wonderful in itself. The village by Big Buddha... More

We went there for sightseeing being tourists. We loved the experience, the scenery, the altitude etc. the stairs are very long that you might need to take couple of breaks, especially if you have children. The statue is huge, and can be seen from a very long distance. When you reach up, you almost touch the clouds, and that was... More

Please leave early.. Arrive there early so you can get around to the fishing villages and there's no need for you to rush.. The last cable car back down I was told was at 5pm.. The Buddha is indescribable and what a great experience to have had and been too

We had a wonderful day here. The day we went was wet and it was foggy. We didn't see the Buddha that well. We still walked to the top and had a great time.

Fantastic place with a dream view over Lantau island, accessible by Bus, cable car and car. 5.7 Km trip on cable will get you to this magic place with a massive Buddha overlooking the mountains and the islands. I truly loved the tris trip.

Not great weather on our trip up here but nevertheless we had a fantastic time. Lots to visit at the summit and well worth the effort. I lost count of the steps after about the fifth flight of stairs but so worthwhile. Very tranquil and humbling.

Easily navigated MTR railway Kowloon-Tung Chung, you can also get a bus there. The Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car takes you on a breathtaking 25 min journey. Many ticket choices, we opted for Crystal ( glass bottomed cable Car ) & for the few £s more would highly recommend it. Queue is slightly shorter & staff are happy to only... More
