“Worth a trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

The Big Buddha is worth the trip. The village is OK but nothing special. We ate before catching the cable car back down but for some reason they had no beer. Queues for the cable car were pretty long but we went for the glass bottom one which had less people waiting. Views weren't brilliant because of the haze surrounding Hong Kong but I can only assume they would be pretty good on a clear day. If there is such a thing there.I think you can actually walk all the way up the mountain but no idea how long that would take. Might be worth it for the scenery. The shopping area around Tung Chung was Ok. Couple of nice bars and the shops were all designer outlets. So, good if shopping is your thing.I would recommend it.

The budda at the top is fun and if you get the cable car go super early. We arrived at 9.15 to no queue, by the time we came back down at 11, there was a 2 hour queue. The cable car was fun but not worth that long a wait.

“The views are worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

To see the Big Buddha, we decided to take the Ngong Ping 360 cable-car ride. The only issue was the queue getting onto the cable car. We went on a weekday (being Wednesday) and arrived at the Tung Chung entrance (via the MTR) at around 10.45am. The attraction opens at 10.00am. It took us about one & a half hours to actually get onto the cable-car ... but the views make it worthwhile. I suggest you pre-book your tickets by going online as there is a separate line for pre-bookings which bypasses the long queue waiting to purchase tickets. The journey takes 25 minutes and is about 6 kms long. We bought 2x "Crystal Cabin" one-way tickets which cost HK$298. We question whether the additional cost for the "Crystal Cabin" is worth it as the views are really out of the main windows not the glass floor ... but as a novelty for the kids, it may be worth it.

“Do some research and consider your options.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

The cable car journey is great, I highly recommend it. But if only going for the Buddha and not ongoing to Tai O perhaps this will work for you. We caught the 8.50 am ferry from central to Miu Wo, Lantau Island, around a 40 minute journey with great views of Kowloon and Hong Kong. I think around $20 HKD each, we used our Octopus Card. We walked straight off the ferry to the bus for Ngong Ping, around 30 minutes and only $17HKD, octopus card again. Prior research had suggested this was the best option for our family because
1. we avoid lines where possible and
2. we like to see the local side of life as well as the major tourist sights
The bus ride was great for viewing the island and glimpsing local life. It's a winding road but I was so busy looking at everything I didn't feel ill and I get car sick easily. After viewing Tian Tan Buddha we then went through the village but didn't really go in any shops etc. We purchased our tickets for the cable car and walked straight on. The views were magnificent. Well worth the HKD$94 each. When we got down to Tung Chung we were amazed to see the length of the queue waiting to go up. I had seen images of the queues and read how long they could get but actually seeing the poor people in line made me so glad we had gone the road and water less travelled. We were then able to be in Disney land by 1pm. There were earlier ferry options if you want an early start.
