Breath taking cablecar ride across expansive water and mountains help you arrive exhilarated and excited. The views are magnificent and so expansive to be worth a 2nd or 3rd visit. The big Buddha history and temple are just glorious and very humbling in the mountain...More

The big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery are just next to each other. It is worth a 3 hrs visit. However, forget about the cable car. It is too expensive. Better to travel by public bus from Tung Chung MTR station or Mui Wu Ferry...More

The Big Buddha was a little hard to get to as the cable car was not operating when I was there (maintenance). Instead, I took a bus there. The experience was well worth the trip. Took lots of great photos.

Book on line (no need to print) as this will give you a better price and no queuing. Only attempt if you can climb the 260 + steps, but it is so worth it. You can see Buddha from the cable car & great photos

Sorry I am not sure whether it is possible to climb the Buddha before 10am. I was here at 3pm and the place is not as crowded. However, the Buddha faces East. This makes it ideal for photo shoot in the morning but not in the... More

We saw many people with strollers on the cable car. The kind that fold up. It's a lot of walking so I think if you have a little one you should bring it.
