On Lantau, you can go from the beaches to the Big Buddha to a bar-restaurant in Discovery Bay all in the same day. For those who love getting out and being active, Lantau is the paradise you’ve been looking for, but it has loads to offer history buffs and culture vultures, too. Whether you want to hike to a sunset viewpoint or take a glass-bottomed gondola to the tallest seated Buddha in Hong Kong before going back down to a restaurant by the sea, Lantau has something for you.
The star attraction on Lantau is the 34-metre Tian Tan Buddha, known as simply the Big Buddha, which rests high up on a hilltop. The best way to get there? The Ngong Ping 360 cable car that climbs from Tung Chung to tranquil Ngong Ping Village with stunning views of the Lantau landscape.
Remarks: The Big Buddha is currently undergoing renovations. The lower part of the Big Buddha statue is covered and the areas in the vicinity of the Big Buddha statue will be closed during the maintenance period. All religious ceremonies and events will continue as usual, please check the official website before you visit.
