Alfresco dining with the freshest catch from the ocean. Take a hike from Yung Shi Wan to Sok Ku Wan. Experience fresh air and scenic sites along the way.

I would of really like to see more of this Island but I was only able to do the cable car (crystal one) up to the big Buddha. The cable car was amazing but the big Buddha is more of just a tourest trap. No real history. Found out that it was just put up there in the 90's and a plaza was just built around it. I was hoping for more of historic value.

well worth the half hour ride (and lengthy queue) on the cable car. What a brilliant view from up there. A bit touristy when you get there but not too bad. The buddha is impressive. If you don't like heights you can always try hiking up but allow a day, it's a long walk!

Good day trip to see the giant Buddha by way of the cable cars. Must ride the crystal car with glass bottom.

As it is a tourist attraction, if you mind being in crowded area, don't go. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable experience with the usual tourist trap gimmicks such as photo souvenirs, lunch, more photo souvenirs, etc.

I like the temple, it is beautiful, the big Budha is nice too. Go by boat and take the cable car back to Hong Kong island.
