A very nice half day/whole day out. The buses are frequent as the cable car is out of action until June 2017. Once there it is peaceful and very informative.

The Aerial tram is CLOSED. Consequently, the Big Buddha is not easy to visit. The 23 Bus takes an hour each way from metro station.

Well worth the inexpensive ferry trip - approx. 40 min. Beautiful island, very green and lovely quiet beaches and many walks - very relaxing after busy Hong Kong

At time of visiting the cable car fron Tung Chung was off for repairs. Had to wait about 55 mins for bus no 23 to take you up the hill 40 mins. Once there the po Lin monastery is pretty special. Be warned it is a significant climb up the steps to the Buddha but the views from the top... More

Easy bus trip on a windy road from the ferry terminal, on Landau island, about 30 minutes. Walk up a lot of steps to the Buddha which is big! Good views around. The Po Lin Monastery is next to the Big Buddha and you pass through lots of burning incense. There is also a nice walk called the Wisdom path... More

What a fantastic place to visit but be prepared to do some walking not for the faint hearted to walk to the top.

You can get there either by bus or the trolley. Once you get there, quite a few steps to get to the Buddha statue. Very well worth the hike up the steps. Vista views all around. Visit the monastery while you are there.

It's a giant Buddha. It's only been there since the early nineties, but it's pretty impressive. There's a few steps up to the Buddha then great views when you get up there. There's a trail you can take close by, and also the wisdom walk which is a bunch of trees with inscriptions (in Chinese so no idea what they... More

It is definitely worth going to The Big Buddha. We took the bus (#23) as the cable car service was closed due to maintenance. It was a very nice ride in hilly surroundings. There are 250 steps up to and down from The Big Buddha. Also go to the temple to the right when you get down from the Buddha.... More

I took a different route getting to Lantau Island and was pretty amaze with the scenery and my choices of transportation. Took the ferry from Central (pier 7) to Lantau (Mui Wo Pier #6) and cost about 25HKD/person. It was about a 40 minute ferry ride to the other side. From Mui Wo Pier, took the #1 bus to Tai... More
