  • The island of Lantau is the garden of Hong Kong, and it was a pity that the British colonial government had promised not to open the island of Lantau, but in the 20 years since it returned to its own country, the sound of the island of Lantau had been on its own. Apart from its natural beauty, Lantau Island also breeds many unique creatures, including the Toulouse and the Hong Kong Salamander Newt. The country park in Lantau is indeed a good place for Hong Kong people to enjoy the rest of the week. If a garden is also developed, Hong Kong people are really sad.

  • I was really impressed with Lantau. Relaxed atmosphere and beautiful unspoiled countryside except for the airport area which is a spectacular site of its own.  more »

  • THIS WAS A VERY 'SPIRITUAL' EXCURSION FOR ME. THE HISTORICAL NATURE OF THE ENTIRE ISLAND WAS INTRIGUING. I WILL DEFINITELY VISIT AGAIN, AND SAY "HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND❗❗❗"
  • Love it the whole experience was astonishing. The mountains and ocean, the lush green trees and hills as you make your way to the Big Buddha was amazing
  • Lantau Island is the most beautiful place in Hongkong. on this island there is a statue of Buddha that is very beautiful and majestic. and the road is very tiring because to reach the budha statue we have to pass a very high ladder! yes that is the beauty of Lantau island is very memorable in the heart

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
