The line was quite long the day I went. Approximately 1.5 hours. Eventually, we bought the regular cable car ride up to through the mountains. That was very enjoyable and relaxing. We arrived in the village but there's not very much to buy up there. Some tacky tourist teapots and overpriced postcards. The Big Buddha is a lovely sight to see and I would most definitely suggest the short walk to Wisdom Path. Wisdom Path is quieter as there are much less people wandering around. If I had the right gear and the extra time I would have done some hiking through on the mountains... I'll remember for next time!
Great way to get away from the city!More
