“Overpriced shops try to scheme you off your money!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Was well decorated and felt like a touristy place. Nice souveneirs but a bit over priced(a key chain cost me 56 HK$). There are some annoying salesmen in some shops, who try hard to lure you into buying stuff you'd regret paying so much for later. The eateries were clean and some even branded.

“Cable car trip is worth the queue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

After getting to Tung Chung early in the day, we still had to queue for about on hour the get on the cable car, but it was worth it. The cable car ride is great fun travelling over land and water, giving you great veiws of Lautau Island, HK airport and of Big Buddha. The village seems artifical and touristy and definitely over priced - bottle of water was HK$10! My suggestion is to keep walking through to Big Buddha, the monastery and the many walking trails to be taken on the mounain.

“Great scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Ngong Ping Village is a suitable place if you want to enjoy cultural scenery. You would get bunch of good photos too here. Starting with cable car (I recommended the crystal cabin because you could take cool photos if you sit exactly on the transparent cable car), then the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Wisdom Path, there are a lot of photos you could take there. Suitable for families with children (they would like the cable car) and old people (they would like the scenery). But keep on mind that to visit this place, you would have to walk quite far.

“Worthwhile ride; amazing views (weather permitting)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We paid extra ($398 hkd) for the round-trip Crystal cabin vs. the Standard cabin @ $338 hkd (RT). To save money, you can purchase the one-way cable car ride tix & then take a bus back to Mui Wo to catch a ferry back to HK. The Crystal cabins has the transparent floor & having less ppl in the Crystal line was worth the price diff. If you are afraid of heights or have fear of enclosed spaces, this is not for you.

During the rainy summer typhoon season, the cable cars have been known to close due to bad weather. Also, the views will not be as nice if the weather is foggy/very rainy; so plan your trip accordingly. On the day of our visit, it was raining heavily in the morning; we checked the 360 website & it did not post that they were closed due to weather. So when we got to the Tung Chung Citygate outlets, we saw that the sky cleared, but was overcast.

The cable car ride itself is very long (~30mins) to get to the Big Buddha. It was not too crowded so there were 6 ppl in our cabin. Posted max is 10 per cabin. The cabin has open windows on top & mesh backing so that air could circulate (inside was not too cold nor too warm/humid). We got to see amazing views of planes taking off from airport & clear views of the surrounding ocean/forests & waterfalls.

Once you alight the cable car, you are in the Ngong Ping Village, which is a bit commercial; full of souvenir shops, a Subway sandwich store, Starbucks, Gelato store, movies, martial arts demos, etc. A short walk through the village takes you to the Big Buddha. There is a bus terminal @ the village where you can take the #21 bus to visit the Tai O fishing village. You can easily spend @ least 4 hours up to a full day exploring the Big Buddha, Tai O, shopping @ the village & Citygate outlets.

“Very historical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The place was neat and clean and very traditional. The quietness of the surrounding wanted me to stay there for a long time. The air is fresh, the view is green. Way to go!
