Another super cool thing to do after you've grown tired of the city and need quiet. The Buddha is out on LAN Tau island by the airport ( you can actual get a glimpse if you know where to look on landing) you can take...More

You are so high up that you are literally in the clouds. Totally worth spending the time checking it out. If you can couple it with the cable car attraction the same day, you can hit that, the monastery, and big Buddha all at once.

Big Buddha is cool and we enjoyed our visit, particularly the nature views at the top and the random cattle walking around. However, after living in Hong Kong for 2 years and visiting many nature and religious sights, I insist Big Buddha should be low...More

If you go to the Tian Tan Buddha, go early, when the site is serene, uncrowded, and beautiful. On my last visit to the Tian Tan Buddha we took the 7:10 ferry from Central to Mui Wo and then the 8:00 Route 2 bus from...More

A must do. Loved the whole experience. It is a phenomenal engineering feat. The cable car ride is worth it just for the view.

MTR then a bus trip is the way to get there. One of the iconic Hong Kong landmarks and should be on your list if you have a spare day.

It's best to choose a sunny, clear day for the views. When you get to the top ignore all the touristy stuff and go straight to the Big Buddha, it's very impressive and quite nice to see Chinese Buddhists praying to it. Inside there is...More

This is one of those things that you should just make time for. While the trip there is a bit more expensive than other travel in Hong Kong, the cable car ride is well worth it and the big buddha is definitely worth the trip.

My first time visiting the Tian Tan Buddha and I really enjoyed it. The shopping village nearby was also quite fun and had lots of interesting little shops. If you have time, take the cable car.

The cable car was not working when I went so I got a replacement bus up and down but it should be back by now. It is only a short walk from Tung Chung on the MTR. Well worth a visit.

We were in Hong Kong last month and stayed in East Tsim Sha Tsui. We took MTR to Lung Chung and it seemed not that long (time). And it is cheap.
