This was an extraordinary day trip! We were very fortunate that the day was moderately hot, as trekking up the 200+ steps to see the Buddha was challenging enough without a burning sun to contend with. The sight of the Buddha as you come over...More

Slightly creepy (the faces of the statues) yet interesting and very sweaty (climbing all those stairs, good excercise)! Our guide knew to tell lots of history and facts about this place and Hong Kong in general.

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.
