We took the cable car to Tian Tan Buddha & loved the panoramic views we enjoyed the village and were really glad we visited.Pre book the cable car as the lines can be very long.

We very much enjoyed the afternoon on Lantau Island and seeing the Big Buddha. The lines to get there were very long but the view from the top was incredible. Worth the visit. Get smart about how you travel there, might be worth getting a taxi or a bus to the top then the cable car down, we queue 2.5 hours to go up the cable car.

The sight-seeing place located in Lantau Island, visitor can take bus or cable car from Tung Chung to access there, also can take ferry to Mui wo and change bus. The buddhist is the biggest in Asia and need to walk over 200 stairs to go up.

We had decided to visit the Tai O Fishing Village and the Big Buddha on a Thursday to avoid the large crowds that visit these sites on week-ends. However, when we arrived at the No. 11 bus terminal, located at the Tung Chung Bus Terminus, there was a large queue of people waiting to board the bus. Therefore, we had to wait around 25 minutes, while they brought in additional busses.

The ride to Tai O Fishing Village was a 45-minute trip along narrow and winding roads.

At the village, we wandered around the various stalls and food outlets and tried some of their famous fish balls on a stick, and an egg puff and a savory pancake.

After an hour or so here, we took the No. 21 bus to the Big Buddha, which was busy but not too crowed and managed the climb of 268 steps to reach the Big Buddha. Like most attractions in Hong Kong, it was quite commercial, with lots of shops and eating places and a gift shop inside the actual Buddha statue. The public toilets here were usable, but not very clean.

From the Big Buddha, we walked through the Ngong Ping village, which was very commercial, to the cable-car terminus and took the cable-car back down to the Tung Chung area. This was a very pleasant and scenic ride.

Arrived via the cable car to a lovely little village and walked to the entry point of the big Buddha which only took around 10 mins. There are many stairs to get to the base of it but the kids enjoyed the adventure! Great views at top of mountains and monastery. A great escape from the hectic city!
