An amazingly beautiful place, unfortunately a little to comercial when you are walking from the cable car. Shame because it doesn't need to be.

I visited Lantau as part of a tour to attractions around the island. When I booked my tour I knew the Giant Buddha wasn’t built in some ancient era in a primitive way; but that doesn't take away from how impressive it is to visit.

Something that I particularly enjoyed about the island was visiting Tai Po (fishing village) and one of the beaches. This really gave me a sense of the daily life in Lantau, which I always like to witness.

Sure the base of the Buddha is laden with various shops and vendors, but you can take something beautiful away from your visit if you take time out to walk around a bit and appreciate the natural beauty of the island..And of course, the glass bottom cable car ride back down the mountain is quite the experience!

From souvenir-seeking tourist to intrigued people-watcher, a visit to Lantau island is definitely what you make of it. I definitely recommend visiting Lantau Island to supplement your trip to Hong Kong!

Don't miss the Giant Buddha even if you're not a Buddhist.. It's a very peaceful place to got to. About 30 mins by bus.

After a few days in downtown Hong Kong, we needed to get out of the city. We decided to take a trip to Lantau island. We didn't go witha tour, but took the subway there. It was extremely easy and cheap to get to. From the subway we took the cable car up to the big Buddha, then went on the wisdom walk. The whole day took about four hours, and I highly recommend.

A fabulous place to visit with only a short easy train ride from Central. Glass bottom cable car is an awesome experience with an approximately 4.5 km ride with 360deg views. Spectacular experience to ride up over the mountain and see the Big Buddah sitting on the side of the mountain. A truly wonderful experience and a must do if visiting Hong Kong.
