  • 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
