  • the cable car ride is amazing and a must do. the views are incredible. It starts at the Big Buddha area. We went to a fishing village there too. i really didnt enjoy it. just houses on stilts.  more »
  • Is this Hong Kong S.A.R. only Lantau Island. Deep image of the airport and Disneyland! It is both water of life Tai O and Ngong Ping, insufficient number of days at most attractions. You can taste the atmosphere differs from Hong Kong S.A.R. glamorous image!

  • A nice place to visit and quieter than HK?Kowloon. Easy to get to by the MTR and the cable car and visit to the Big Buddha etc is well worth the visit. Very nice places to relax and eat in the village...  more »

  • There are 3 ways to get to the island - cable car (most expensive), bus (cheaper), or trek (cheapest). Each has its pros and cons - the cable car offers a spectacular view, but the trek is great fun and easy to do.
  • 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❗❗❗"
  • Attractive place to be visit! Huge Buddha that I’ve ever seen!
  • Enjoy it a lot. This is where I do most of my hiking.
  • 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
