You simply must take the gondela up to the big budda. It was the most memorable experience. So much fun. Rooms are amazing.

You need to get there before 4.30 as it takes 20 mins to get up there and you want 1 hour min there then another 45 mins to get back. Plus abny queing time.

Get the more expensive crystal cabin (its not much more) and you will hardly have to wait. You are highly likely to get the whole cabin to yourself, whereas in the standard cabins they will squash up to 10 people in there

I done some shopping here however the prices don't vary much from the other stores. I wonder how prices could be so expensive when they get the stuff is all made in China

There is lots of places to eat, drink and shop just outside the station, which is ideal if you realise there is a long queue for Ngong Ping and want to keep yourself occupied queues die down.

This is quite a long trip on a cable car compared to what is in the Ocean Park. Up above the hill, you can see beyond the developed island surrounded with water while looking down were some fishermen on their wooden boat. This could be the rural side of the country.
It was foggy at 10:00 a.m. but riding on a cable car was quite amazing specially when you tried to look behind your way and seeing all the cable cars heading towards you. Of course, you can't ask them to race with you. If you can just do it, you will! And on the opposite side are the cable cars going towards the home station with some passengers waving on you. Quite fun!
Upon reaching Ngong Ping, the place was some sort of a village that leads towards the Big Buddha. Climbing up the stairs will give you exhaustion (bring some water with you) if you're not used to. And the Buddha, for others is blessed. For me, it is really BIG!
Staffs would take some pictures of you from Tung Chung station. If you like, just say 'cheese!' If you don't want to, they will not even force you to. Then the power of technology - just as you arrived in Ngong Ping 360, you will be greeted by the staffs with all smile showing your picture! And yes, with a price!
