  • Nice place to spend a couple of hours. On its own it might be little to come all the way so couple it up with the Lantau Trail Hike. The cable car ride is good. You get a view of the airport and see f...  more »
  • If you look from the bottom on the stairs, you think you can't. However, you will not be disappointed above the environment.

  • Nice veggie food in a reasonable price but you better to order a food ticket when you arrive there before the visit. The temperature is a bit lower than Hong Kong Island because of the elevation so you better get well dressed.
  • Very close to the Tian tan Buddha. Lots of incense and prayers going on there! Beautiful architecture, vibrant colours. Inside the monastery you can't take pictures though.
  • Cooling place, Nice view. Monday to Saturday bus ride cost HKD 17.20. Sun n Public holiday HKd 27.00
  • After visit the Big Buddha, most of the prayers will visit Po Lin Monastery. You can get vegetarian of the day here.
  • Place for pray, they had build a new building behind, thousand gods temple which is very great view also.
