I would visit just for the cable car - the sweeping views of the Bay Area are amazing - but the Buddha itself is a much better view from far away than up close. The surrounding area is cool (but touristy), but we were impressed...More

A serious must do. Catch the MTR to Ngong Ping Cable Car station and take a breathtaking ride to the top of Lantau Island and Ngnong Ping Village. Yes, the beautifully restored village shops are designed to lure in the hunger and shopping addicted tourist...More

It gets quite cold up there! The valley is quiet and serene. Definately find the wisdom path and follow the trail up to the end! Stunning views. Cues are quite long.
