This was a great trip for us. Took a while to get there but well worth it. The Buddha is an amazing sight both from distance and up close. The House of the Ten Thousand Buddha was also breathtaking, a very peaceful place and was respected by all. Cattle and dogs wander about the site but are harmless and will... More

We went when it was very foggy and it was barely visible. The lunch after by the monastery was great!

Came for the Buddha, but was more blown away my the monestary. The colorful paints and gold were beautiful. The steps up to the big Buddha were no joke! But the views from the hilltop of the ocean and the temples was worth it. The monestary lunch was a unique meal, but it was pretty difficult for my western tastes.

We had a 9 hour stop-over in Hong Kong and easily managed to fit it in. Two buses from the airport and about an hour travel and we were there. The climb is very short so don't be afraid (unless you require a walking stick or are VERY elderly). The panoramic view is breathtaking and inside there is some interesting... More

I went in mid feb and the cable car was down for maintenance so we had to bus it there which was 30 minutes. Once there it is quite a pleasing scene. The grounds are well kept and the main temple is pretty amazing. The walk up is quite steep and people with mobility problems will find it very hard.... More

Well worth going if you have the time. We did it using public transport and enjoyed mingling with the locals.

Very iconic, unique, and a great way to spend half a day. Travel Tip, catch the ferry at pier 6 to Lantau then catch bus 2 to and from.

Easily accessible by public transport or one of the many short tours being offered, the big buddha can boast to be the second largest outdoor buddha made in bronze in Asia, just being pipped to the post by a buddha in Taiwan within the last few years. As with many temples in Asia, the attraction of the buddha and the... More

Stunning thing, best to go in the afternoon as the sun is behind the Buddha so difficult to photograph easily. Had a meal in the temple which was brillient!

This is a really good half day excursion. We travelled via the MTR then took bus 23 as the cable car is closed until July. No hassle at all as it was a Monday morning & very quiet. The bus cost 17HKD. Once at the top, you get to see the Buddha & more. The 260+ steps were nothing as... More
