Buddha out of service
Jan. 2021
Unfortunately no photo op since scaffolding all around the Buddha when we went. Otherwise, it is a good place to visit. Fresh air and you can hike up or down if you are fit. Queue for the cable car can be a bit long (30-45 minutes) on busy days. You can also get a bus from Tung Chung MTR. You can buy food and drink on top.

Big Buddha
Feb. 2021 • Solo
From Tung Chung you can take 23 or 11, I visited here after my lantau hike I took the bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Or you can take Bus no 11 as well. It is the last stop. Big buddha and Ngong Ping 360° adventure are both situated inside this small village. You can easily find your way around.

Good for a visit to relax your mind.
Area has lots of food stalls.

(These days the Big buddha is closed due to renovation and still it is going on)

Beautiful place, worth your time
Mar. 2020
Getting to the Tian Tan Buddha wasn't super straight foreword, but it was worth it. I recommend going in the evening and staying until it closes. The best moment is when everyone leave and you are left alone with the sunset and the wind.

I also got the chance to spectate to a monk chorus (I honestly have no idea what it actually was) which was a really... weird and unique experience.

I've been there in November 2019 but only now remembered to actually write down a review.

There may be bigger statues of Buddha, on higher mountain, with lot more stairs, in more remote places, with more gold paint, with more bells and whistles, more fancy etc etc etc but that doesn't make this one any less inferior.

The subway from the city, the coach/cable car ride to the mountain, the long way up to the Buddha, the views from the top of beautiful Lantau Island, the little temples below in fact the whole experience is very refreshing.

And the most important part is that it gives you much needed breathing break from that fast paced, super busy, ultra congested city life of Hong Kong.

A good day out for the family, but surprisingly commercial.
Nov. 2019
Go early to avoid the crowds and queues. A half day to a full day out depending if you eat there in the commercial path up to the Buddha. At the Buddha there are many steps to get up close and go inside.

Extraordinary status and great area outsides of Hong Kong to be relax
Nov. 2019
I've been here many times, however, everytime I'm here that I feel happy and relax.
It is really a big Buddha statue, and from the different angle, you can get the different pictures. If the weather is good and clear, the picture will be amazing.

There are so many steps to climb up to see Buddha, and always be crowded in the steps. Once you are in the top of it you will see broadly and enjoy the air and scenery.

Highly recommend to visit here when you get the spare time in Hing Kong.

An incredible spiritual experience!
Dec. 2019
It took us multiple attempts to get to Tian Tan Buddha due to the strict cable car schedule but what an experience it was. Soak up the temples, statues, and gorgeous nature, and then take the bus to Tai O village for dinner.
