Even with a lot of people this place remains calm. Beautiful views if you climb to the budha. And nice view in the way to the budha. In both, bus or cable car

Well worth a visit. The Buddha and temple are very impressive in size and splendour. We went with a tour group and the guide was very good and told us about the history and culture of both. We also had a lovely vegetarian lunch in the restaurant. The cable car ride back down the mountain was good and looking back... More

On my recent visit to Hong Kong I set aside a day to go to the Buddha. When arriving at the cable car terminal at Tung Chung I was disappointed to find that the cable car was closed for three weeks for maintenance. I had to queue nearly an hour for a bus (hundreds waiting) and they ran only every... More

a should go destination. it's the longest cable car I've ever ride on. the view is spectacular and the going up the big Buddha stair is very tiring but when you reach to the top it's all worth it.

From the cable car exit, you are headed through an awful tourist 'village'. do't top to look, just walk on through until you reach the Buddhist area. The statue is quite impressive, the temples interesting, and the Buddhist vegetarian cafe very tasty. Recommended if you have a spare half day in Hong Kong - easy to get to by metro.
