We purchased cheaper tickets (360 Tai O pass) via our agency but we had to redeem them. Take note you have to join the queue for redemption of tickets. Only those who purchased tickets via the official website itself will be able to print out their tickets and skip the queue entirely. That's for people who dont mind paying the difference in amount.
When we wanted to board the cable car back to Tung Chung, it was a 70 mins wait.
However, PLEASE NOTE: Tai O fun pass holders are able to head into one of the photo shop in Ngong Ping and get a fast pass which will allow you to skip the queue totally. We were lucky cos we were holding on to the tickets just as we started queuing and the staff told us about this. This advantage isn't made known on their website or ticket itself so please, please take note.
Our Tai O Pass comes with a bus ride to and fro Tai O, snack coupon to use there and a boat excursion but it was cancelled that day.
Please allocate a full day for Ngong Ping and Tai O cos there's lots to see, climb, and take photos of!More
