A big difference with the city but nothing special compared with SHENZHEN or real Chinese cities. The food is not waauw and the atmosphere is local. But nothing more

This attraction is absolutely, 100% not worth the hours-long lines to get here. Find out when an "off-season" is if you must see this, otherwise save your time and money.

it is impressive to see such a big Buddha. however, you must walk up a lot of staircase to arrive there. NOt all people would be suitable to go up so much. Anyway, I prefer to take photos outside than going inside.

Budai'ao (Tian Tan Buddha) is relatively new (built in 1993) and it's mainly a tourist attraction but still well worth a visit. Don't miss the beautiful views from the platform and a Buddhist art museum inside the Buddha building.

Budai'ao is a duplicate listing on TripAdvisor with Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha), a major landmark and tourist attraction on Lantau Island. It is one of the most popular attractions for visitors to Hong Kong, a place you can spend 1/2 - 1 full day...More

For some people it's a saint place and for us it's tourist attraction, expected a bit bigger. If you saw already a few buddhas, then you can miss that.
