It's a place of culture and history! Don't just see the Big Buddha from the bottom! Challenge yourself to walk all the way up and it's proved to be all worth it! The Big Buddha is huge and there's much more stories to reveal inside!

I have been here 3 times, twice since the Tram was built. This might be the longest aerial tram ever, with the greatest views starting with HKIA airport, mountains and ocean views. The tram also reaches so pretty high peaks as you start to reach...More

Climb youself up to the top of the Buddha by the stairs, you'll feel very peaceful and excited. Catch the right anger to capture the full Buddha on your photo.

A visit to the Big Buddha is absolutely worth it. The cable car ride and the views are fabulous and the Buddha is worth the climb up the stairs. A must do if you have time in HK.

The cable car ride to get to the Lantau island was a memorable experience in itself! The views from the top were extremely beautiful, especially the Big Buddha! Lantau island is very thoughtfully developed and is very tourist friendly. It was an amazingly serene experience...More

The cable car journey is amazing.., spectacular scenery and lots of photo opportunities. The giant Buddha sits atop the mountain with the best view & you marvel at its size. Great work/out to climb the stairs ... All 256 of them.

The giant Big Buddha is located on top of mountain. A clean area away from the town. 200 over steps to see the Big Buddha.

The cable car was not working when I went so I got a replacement bus up and down but it should be back by now. It is only a short walk from Tung Chung on the MTR. Well worth a visit.

We were in Hong Kong last month and stayed in East Tsim Sha Tsui. We took MTR to Lung Chung and it seemed not that long (time). And it is cheap.
