Quick review: get there early before the gondola starts, take the bus but have exact change. I believe it was 17.20 HKD. Take the bus up, because then you get to look around without a bunch of people. Good for pictures too. We paid to go into the museum and for the free water and ice cream when we got... More

Take the glass bottom gondola for the ride up! Across from lift exit is a perfect spot for a picture - you can have the Buddha sit on your shoulder! The little shops on the brief walk to the Buddha are nothing special; don't waste time here. The walk to the top is well worth it! Amazing.

This is a must go in Hong Kong, Take the tramp ride from Tung Chung cable car station and enjoy the great long ride up with a fantastic view of the Airport and Lantau island. The cable car ride queue maybe a little long during peak seasons so you need to go there early and be prepared to spend a... More

It's big and it's a Buddha. It is located up on a peak with some hundreds of steps on the way up. Would I take a day to go just here? No I would not. We took it as part of a hike.

We went on an all day tour offered by viator. The tour went to all the right places. The tour guide could have talked more about what we were seeing. It isn't cheap, but I would recommend it.

I have actually been twice to Hong Kong and if I was to visit again, I would be for sure going back up to see the Buddha. It never fails to amaze me. There is a lot to see before you even reach the Buddha, there are lots of beautiful little shops (where I bought some chop sticks) The view... More

Definitely take time out to come here. Even if you're not here to worship, a cable car ride up to the top of the mountains and stroll through the quaint tourist village is enough. The walk to the Buddha is quite tiring, so definitely wear comfy shoes!!

It took long journey from the central as its in different island (Lantau Island). Expected to try sky train but unfortunetley it is under maintaince for 6 months. We decided to took bus, from terminus next to sky lift station. The road to the big Budha was fantastic

Probably because we were unlucky to have mist and rainclouds our visit was pretty dismal. Sometimes experiences can be 'atmospheric' when the weather is poor, but this was just melancholic - worse then the lake district on a dull day! Sadly the cable car was also out of action (noting others enjoyed that) but actually the highlight of our day... More
