For the view and the history!

A bit cooler day is better than a hot day. A lot of stairs! But so worth the trip! A close up on the Buddha and checking the temple out is a must.

We decided to take a day trip to visit Tai-O and the Big Buddha by taking the MTR to Tung Chung, followed by small bus journeys between the two locations. Ngong Ping village is very quaint and peaceful with plenty of tourist shops selling traditional souvenirs which aren't even that overpriced. The steps to the top of the Big Buddha... More

We took the bus to the place since the gondola is under repair. We visited the monastery and the Wisdom Path as well. After we run to the nearby peak which is the second highest in the Hong Gong area. The weather was good enough to see some places farther.

Went on the Lantau Island Viator and it was great. The Big Buddha was in a mist but still worth it and the lunch at the Monastery was the best food I have had on this business trip through China. The guide was from Lantau so he had real experience to talk about during the day. I am not typically... More

Easy to get to on the MTR and the cable car. Ride up to the Big Buddha is exhilarating with fantastic views on all sides including the huge airport. I waited around half an hour for the cable car. Big Buddha and Temple are well worth the visit.

The time taken in riding on cable car to Big Buddha is almost 1.5 Hrs. Ther is also an option of fast checkin by paying 850 Dollors. Good Place to travel

We bought ticket for 360 Ngong Ping Tour which was worth the price. First, we get a free lined-up access to the cable car station (felt so good!), then we are guided to not just the temple, but also the fishermen village to enjoy local snacks and see the pink dolphin.

This is perhaps one of the biggest open air Buddhist statute. Going there by cable car is already a wonderful experience with sea views of the quite parts of Hong Kong. As one leave the cable car station, one would first visit the "old market/village". Then for another 15 minutes walk, you can see the Big Buddha.

We visited the Bug Buddha in winter. It was the coldest part of our 10 day trip. I would make sure to pack warm clothing next time. It is a gorgeous spot with beautiful scenery. The walk up to the Big Buddha was quite doable and the temple with 1000 Buddhas was just stunning. People must check out all parts... More
