Taking the S1 bus from the airport and then the gondola is a great way to see this monumental sight. Also the monastery is well worth seeing. Queues for the gondola can be long and there are 200+ steps up to the Buddha, so wearing...More

An amazing breathtaking experience to visit. The trip there is visually stunning via gondola and if you can see past all the tourist mess in the “village” it is wonderful! We just walked past all the tourist traps and overpriced restaurants and trinket stores and...More

Must see of Big Buddha statue. Please obey all the rule as this is a temple and most visitor pray in this area. Beautiful sight of scenery. Prepare yourself to climb and very high stairs to walk.

This was so much better than expected. The views alone make it worth the effort. The statue is really great for something fairly new and it’s great to see genuine monks there. For those averse to Disney style commercialisation I advise avoiding the ‘village experience’...More

Took the Ngong Ping 360 cable car package. The ride in the car is nice and gave a good 360 view of Lantau and the surrounding greeneries. On arrival, we spot the Buddha from a distance and made a bee line to it, bypassing the...More

I took the bus which stops very close to the entrance leaving a walk on level ground of approx. 400m to the foot of the steps up to the Buddha. A taxi or private hire vehicle can also get this close. The gondola access is... More

Get the bus if you can that way you will avoid up to a 2 hour wait. Get up there before 11am that way you can get the cable car back down early afternoon and it won’t be busy
