    This was an amazing place to have been to. All the buildings in the temple area are som majestic, the statues are impressive but the main centerpiece is of course the Buddha statue. It is awesome in its size, fantastic craftwork and you can not help but feeling peace and tranquility when looking at it.

    You get a very good view over the city from here. Though I would recommend that you go there on a day when the weather will allow you to see the view. If it is foggy/cloudy/rainy ti will take away from the experience.

    When you want to see more of the waterfront and harbourview this is a nice alternative to the metro. You use the Octopus card here as well so it is very convinient.

    We take the 360 cable car ride to the Ngong Ping Village, the Tian Tan Buddha and the Wisdom Path landscape area, the cable car ride gives us a good experience seeing the surrounding beautiful scenery along the cable car from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping in 25 minutes. Excellent!

    We visited Lantau island in October.
    Our main destinations were,
    Tian Tan buddha
    Ngong Ping Village
    Wisdom path
    Tai O fishery village
    Fu Shan View Point
    Cheung sha beach

    We started our journey as early as possible. We arrived to Tung Chung around 10.30am. From MTR we walked pass through the bus terminal to the other side to take bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Wisdom path is also located in Ngong ping village. We covered all these areas within like 2hrs and took the bus No 21 to Tai O. Gets down at the last stop and keep walking through the village to and the trail path to Fu shan view point. It was a very sunny day there is no cover on top. We didnt spend much time there and we came to Cheung sha beach. You can take anybus that comes to Tung Chung from Tai O but you have to ask the bus driver to stop the bus to get off and the bech.

    A fantastic evening spent here. We had a lovely night full of excitement and fun. We even had a few winners when we were here. The views of the city are amazing and it is surreal to see the racecourse and the backdrop of all the highrise buildings in Hong Kong. A must see for visitors ....loved it!

    The Dragon’s Back (Traditional Chinese: 龍脊) is a ridge in southeastern Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong, between Wan Cham Shan and Shek O Peak. It lies within the Shek O Country Park. In 2004 the Dragon’s Back Trail was selected by TIME Asia as the best urban hiking trail.  Dragons back is possibly the most well-known and well-travelled hike in HK. This is due to its easy terrain, convenient start and end point, it’s proximity to the beaches and of course it’s breath-taking views.

    was instantly surprised by how busy this was compared to other trails I’ve been to in HK.  But it was a sunny Sunday and the temperature was perfect, so I guess local people just thought why not?!

    Start the Dragons Back Hong Kong along Shek O Road, just a 20-minute drive from Central Hong Kong. Either take a taxi or you can take no.9 bus from Shau Kei Wan MTR station, and stop at the bus stop at To Tei Wan Village. The entrance to the Dragon’s Back is right at the bus stop and is highlighted with a large sign and map

    The trail starts (and ends) very easily. It’s not difficult terrain and it’s quite casual to hike, even a beginner could do this I feel.  After around 30 mins it was time for lunch.  Vincent advised us to eat first and check out the views second. However, a few of us climbed the rocks to get some good photos and soak in the vista below. Much to our horror the lunch was almost gone. Lesson learned, next time have lunch first!  It’s a funny story to tell at least and it didn’t really affect the day in anyway.  After lunch came the bulk of the walk.  Some stairs, some trail. All well-defined and easy to navigate, we soon began making great profess.  The only problem was how slow some people are in front of us. Traffic jam on the mountain!  Along the route there are numerous majestic photo opportunities and views of the vista below you. Beaches, oceans and even villas. The views are seared into my brain for all eternity.  The top side of dragons back continue to give good views and good breeze from 360 degrees. However, as you descend the views disappear.  With trees on both side of the trail, you cannot really see much and the 2nd half of the hike was a bit disappointing. The highlight being a refreshing stream to wash our faces and drink. Clean and healthy!

    After defeating the dragon, you end at Big Wave Bay. Still recovering from the devastation of the typhoon, this a popular haven for water sport fanatics with surfers and wind surfers out in force.

    The beach was clean and spacious, the other beach goers not giving us a second look and just going about their business. My opinion is that Big Wave Bay is a bit boring if you don’t go in the water. I’ve never been a beach lover and I didn’t bring a swim suit, so I quickly got bored. With little to see here I was happy to move onto Shek O village

    Shek O is a sleepy seaside village that was quaint and charming. With pastel colour buildings such as pink and orange this gives it a unique style seldom found in mainland China. Also the set of a famous Romantic Movie (don’t ask me which one or if it’s good) this bring tourists here from all corners of HK. Shek O was a great way to end the trip.  It has a superior beach than Big Wave Bay and we witnessed an awesome sunset and the sky was on fire almost.  I also found myself a HK style milk tea which is a must for me every time I visit HK.

    Dragons Back is a must hike in HK, it’s considered the best ‘urban trail’ in the city.  My advice would be to do the hike then head to Shek O beach, skip out Big Wave Bay completely, unless you are a big water sports fan.

    I went two times. The first time I spend 7h inside the museum and I didn’t read all the the documents! We’re entering on the down of earth and leave in the after recession of Hong Kong. You must take your all day for appreciate this museum. So much to learn! Every room is a new experience. Every times I have friends or family coming in HK, this is a must go!

    Born and raised in Hong Kong, I still love taking the tram whenever I have the chance. You can choose to sit (or stand) in the upper deck or lower deck. It may not be as appealing when crowded but the minute you get a gentle breeze of wind on your face and a feeling of serenity, that moment is everything.

    A friend of mine recommended to go and visit this place. I am not a practicing buddhist but I am surprised that there is a certain calmness of mind during meditation inside the nunnery. There are also some rock artifacts and plants showcased upon entering where there are philosophy/quotation on it. There is also a nearby park. It is easy to find this place. Must try!
