This is a must see but ensure you have your oxygen. The wait for the cable car can be ages, take the bus, the vegetarian meal suppled by the monks is well worth the money but avoid the toilets if you are squeemish.

Takes ages to get there and there's not much there besides the giant Buddha, but that's what you go here for, right? We took the bus rather than the expensive cable car.

The Buddha is awesome and well worth seeing. If it's rainy, cold or windy in the city, save it for another day because it's 10x worse up there on the mountain.

What an excellent outing for 3-4 hours.
if you are in transit in HK or have a flight later in the day then head to the Big Buddha. Close to the airport and a great way to clear your head and have a relaxing outing. Highly recommended !

I have visited this place many times now and although I feel the Ngong Ping village is tacky, the cable car ride and the buddha itself are well worth the trip. Some great views can be had from the statue's base and so it is worth the sweat to walk up the steps.

Well worth a visit! Be sure to take the glass-bottomed cable car as it gives you a real height perspective. The cable car journey takes a while, which is great, as it gives you ample time to take everything in. And then as you pass the last peek, you will see the Buddha in the distance - so impressive. Obviously its super touristy but hey, its gotta be done!
