The cable car ride is great to view the city and airport from above, and order is maintained well in the lines. At the top, there is space albeit the crowds going up... The steps to the Buddha leave many breathless, but we found them...More

The Tian Tan Buddha and it's nearby attractions are a pleasant way to spend the day out of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Built in 1993, the buddha is not particularly historic. Underneath the Buddha is a 'museum' of sorts which reads as...More

The cable car was not working when I went so I got a replacement bus up and down but it should be back by now. It is only a short walk from Tung Chung on the MTR. Well worth a visit.
