When my friend and I visited Hong Kong we booked also a tour to the Big Buddha. This bus tour went also to the Dai-O village and the monastery at the foot of the Big Buddha. The Buddha itself is already impressive. Abut I was also impressed by the exhibition inside the foundation of the Buddha seat, which showed also... More

Once you pass through this though the Buddha is absolutely beautiful. If you're used the walking the 268 steps from the base of the monument. Lots of shops and restaurants that target tourists too

Went on a very dull overcast day there was a lot of low cloud, but the 250 steps to climb to the top was worth it to see the amazing Buddha. I would love to go back on a sunny day would have enjoyed it more.

The Tian Tan Buddha is in itself an amazing experience. The interesting statues down below in the village, the climb up the stairs and the fantastic view of the surrounding islands and sea are unforgettable! But, the best part of visiting Tian Tan Buddha is the experience of getting there! Take the Tung Chung MTR until the end, then travel... More

30 min journey by MTR from kowloon then 40 min on bus. The cable car was closed at the time. Amazing place 320 steps to the top but they aren't steep and about 16 at a time then a landing. The buddah is stunning it is so large there is also a monastery next door. If you leave late the... More

Hong Kong most popular tourist destination in the world, crowd everywhere. Where we have a chance to visit Tian Tan Buddha, its one of the best places one can go to escape from the crowd, beautiful views, Big Buddha looks very impressive. Nice visit overall.

Tian Tan Buddha is one of the top reasons people visit Hong Kong. It's like Times Square, the Eiffel Tower or Rome's Coliseum. There is no reason not to go here and 1,000 reasons to check this off your bucket list once and for all so go and I dare you to tell me it's a wasted visit! It isn't.

Awe inspriring place to visit, the Big Budda is amazing - must have taken some time to build. Well worth a trip - the cable car gives wonderful views of the area.

This has to be part of your itinerary in HK. We are not those who like to take organized tours so we took the metro to Lantau (basically going back in the direction of the airport) and then decided (correctly) on getting a taxi to the site of the Buddha and the Monastery. There is a bus service but we... More

Made the trek up to see the Big Buddha. Was on the top of my must see list and glad we did it. It is a bit of ride on on the subway to get there. The cable cars were out of action due to cable replacement happening in May and June. Had to bus it up instead which was... More
