We went by MTR to the island and wanted to hike with the gondola which was under repair. We took a bus for an hour ride up to the Big Buddha. From there we hiked to the peak and went down to the city very quickly. It is a very good day trip to visit also the monastery and the... More

We spent a day here instead of exploring the city. It was perfect for us to see green trees and mountains instead. If we had thought about it we would have stayed closer to the airport and Lantau. The Big Buddha was incredible to see. We also loved the wandering cows. While I love my Starbucks it seems all wrong... More

I was a really impressed by this amazing attraction and one of the longest cable cars I have been on. Would pre book tickets (which we didnt) as the line up is really long (we waited about 1 1/2 hours but luckily not too hot. We didnt book the crystal cabin as I'm afraid of heights and didnt like the... More

It is a whole day activity to visit Big Budda and than Tai O village. Green island, a good way to walk in the fresh air.

I can't even recall what it costs, but the glass-bottom gondola was really, really cool. The views are magnificent and the trip is lengthy (20 minutes?). The buddha is pretty crowded, but the entire area is pretty sizeable so its not a crush of people. The highlight was the trip up and down (we shared a car on the way... More

Apart from stopping here to get to the big Buddha didn't see much else apart from the MTR station and outlets. More like a suburban island for locals rather than a tourist destination
