“Interesting day out”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We took the MTR subway and bought tickets offered solely to tourists (bring your passport) at a discounted rate. You must call before you leave (opens at 10h00) in case the cablecars are not operating due to bad weather. It started drizzling when we got there, so the views were not the best. Being Muslim, we had expensive halal food at Ebenezers. We took a bus to Tai O, but unfortunately didnt spot any white dolphins on the HK$ 20 boat trip which lasted 20 mins. The kids found the fishing village smelly and kept on saying eeeow, but it really was different to Hong Kong mainland.

“Majestic Buddha”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

It was a pleasant experience to visit the Buddha statue by purchasing this Ngong Ping 360 day package.I would recommend the crystal gondola ride even though it was a bit pricy (HK$278).As the bottom of the cabin was this strong crystal clear fibre glass,you could see fishing boat cruising under your feet !On the right you could see the plane took off from the nearby Chek Lup Kok HK airport.Besides,the 360 view of Lantau Island was under your feet !
The passage to the big Buddha was a pleasant stroll.The Buddha sit majestically on top of the small hill.You had to climb many steps in order to get closer to the Buddha.I like the gaze of this bronze Buddha.It had this calming effect.Do stay a bit longer at the top enjoying view of the Buddha and the surrounding treeless hills.
At the canteen of the monastery,you could buy inexpensive vegetarian snacks or noodles.
Overall,it was a pleasant family outing.

“Its Ok, Huge Lines”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The cable car ride is good, but you will wait more than 2 hours unless you are very early or book online prior.

BOOK ONLINE PRIOR is my advice to you.

A good look but a long wait!

“Worth every penny”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This was one of the main things my wife wanted to do on our visit to Hong Kong , so early on our first day there, we set off from the hotel as early as possible to the cable car .Staff were already putting out queue barriers as later in the day it gets VERY busy ,and long queues form .
There is a choice of tickets ,-one way /return /ordinary car/glass bottomed(crystal)/private cabin/360 sky lounge. We chose the crystal cabin and a one way ticket leaving the option open as to getting back down by bus .
The views are spectacular and paying the little extra for a glass bottomed cabin was a great choice .
Once at the top, there is a village specially built for the attraction ,with shops ,a theatre , places to eat , and souvenir shops
Getting to the top of the mount of The Big Buddha is a LOT of steps , but lots of people were huffing and puffing and encouraging each other , and having a laugh at the faces being pulled .
Fantastic views from the top made this climb well worth it .
We chose to take the bus back down, and go to the ferry and across to Hong Kong .The fare was very cheap and if you don't want to go in the cable car you can always get the bus to the top .
We really enjoyed this trip and would recommend it to anyone who is prepared for a lot of exercise .
One last thing , the cable car opens at 10 am weekdays ,and 9 am weekends , get there early or you could have a long wait .
