I find Giant Buddha sight very artificial however still worth to visit because that is the part of Chinese culture, they have historical and old mixed with artificial and fake! Go and explore both sides of it! However when you explore Giant Buddha area take a bus from there to Tai O village which is absolutely stunning, fisherman's houses and the market where you can enjoy grilled scallops and all other type of seafood and fish. I am vegetarian myself but I believe that my meat eater friends would enjoy that place (also my colleagues here in Hong Kong gave great feedback on a food there). When you arrive there will be locals offering you to take a short boat trip for as little as HKD 20 to see pink dolphins. Go for it! It is nice ride through the river streets of the fisherman houses, still bear in mind that seeing dolphins is the matter of luck.
I was lucky! And I wish you to be! :)
