“Big Buddha covered in mist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Sadly the day we decided to go to visit Big Buddha the fog/mist drifted over the Mountain. We did see him but only from close up. It is an amazing and humbling experience. There is an air of peace and tranquillity and we were lucky enough to experience the Shaolin Monks demonstrating their discipline. That was truly moving. Well worth the visit on the cable car. I have to say the scariest cable car ride Ive ever been on!

“great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a mission to get to, but it is very much worth it. take the bus to the buddha, you get to miss the uber amounts of queues for the cable car. on your return take the cable car. great views.

“Best Seen From a Distance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Nice photo op when seen from the tramway and the mountainside, but the heavy commercialism and crowds make up-close not worth it.

“Very nice landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

The big Buddha is a very impressive landmark which is really nice to visit. You're taken to it by a long and beautiful cable car ride which by itself was worth the visit. The Buddha itself is located on the top of the mountain over a really nice (albeit touristy ) village. It is very beautiful.

“make sure you son't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Surprisingly good the description of a Big Budda belies the fact that this is a whole complex with a temple and a beautiful garden with steep steps affording a view of the beautiful scenery around. Don't miss it.
