It was very calming to get to the top, take in the view and realise where you are in the world with the Big B looking down at you. Be respectful of and to the people who attend there for religious ceremonies too.

I did not know what to expect and on reading reviews my expectations were very high and it lived up to my expectations and more!

It's certainly a tourist place, lots of crowds. The stairs to the Big Buddha are quite a climb, best done earlier in the morning. When we were just on top, it started to rain (heavily) and we could take shelter under the statue. Sad part: it has lost a part of its religious meaning, no doubt something the chinese gov likes. The square nearby is in glory to ... yep. Eating at the nearby monastery is something to do. You help the local buddhists (their temple isn't tourist invaded and degraded) and have a really tasteful and healthy meal - at bargain prices even.

We visited this as part of a lantau Island tour. Visited the Monastery as well: have lunch there: wonderful (and vegetarian!!) The Buddha itself almost takes your breath away: simply amazing, both up close and from the bottom of the steps. Loved it. Oh, take the Cable Car next: wow!!!

This is a wonderful place to visit. It's tranquil and inspirational. The cable car ride is exciting. Your first view of the Buddha is truly fantastic and out of this world.
