    Largest of Hong Kong's Islands.
    Lantau is largest of Hong Kong islands and home to Po Lin Monastery, Tian Tan Buddha Statue, Ngong Ping Village, Skyrail and the International Airport. Arriving by air and luckily able to see the extent of construction being undertaken, the scope of the work is astounding. Our shore excursion enabled us to visit some of the sights and enjoy the views. Worth spending some time here and our guide advised that there are some wonderful walking trails for the fitter and more adventurous visitors.

    Lantau Island
    The Cable car ride was fantastic. Views are extraordinary. The Village is a tourist trap with the usual souvenir shops and high priced food outlets. Once inside the Budda you climb the stairs to discover only at that point that the next section you have to pay for to gain entry. No warning signs at the bottom. But still a site to visit but it will take with movement from hotel in city to cable car lines then ride then budda and back a full day.

    A must when in Hong Kong
    No visit to Hong Kong is complete without visiting Lantau. Easy access from HK by metro. It has several attractions such as Big Budha, Po Lin Monastery, the fishing village of Tai O, not to mention Honk Kong Disneyland. Except for Disney, you can visit everything in one morning

This tourist destination is often written as a 'must see' place in Hong Kong, I don't agree. If you have time to spare then maybe it's worthwhile but otherwise it's a little disappointing. The cable car is fun and offers good views but you'll not stay long at Lantau Island as there's little else to do and see.

Been to Hong Kong Kowloon before and visited the usual tourist attractions like The Peak, Victoria Harbour, Tsim Sha Tsui, did my shopping at Mongkok and Ladies' Market, ate my authentic dim sum at Sham Shui Po --- totally loved the hustle and bustling when I was single...

This time we decided to stay just on Lantau Island, because being older now, we just wanted something more relaxing, closer to nature and perhaps, not be caught in a jam (be it traffic or human jam). Glad that we did, and we were able to cover all these in our 5-day trip:

1. Airport
The airport was just a 15-minute ride to our hotel.
Loved the short ride and almost totally empty roads.

2. Hotel
True, there were many other hotels in Lantau,
but none as fun at Disney Explorers Lodge, with its sea-facing views.

3. Transport
Also linked to the hotel, because the taxi concierge was EXCELLENT...
Always managed to get our taxi to us in under 10 minutes.
(We tried getting taxi by ourselves outside the hotel, it was always so hard. Literally no taxis come after 20 minutes of waiting at any taxi stands. Always had to use Uber.)

4. Mountains - Ngong Ping
The Ngong Ping 360 cable car station was also about 15 minutes ride away.
It was cool to take the cable car ride that crosses several mountains and the sea.
Saw many hikers too, would try the hike when we were more prepared next time!
The Ngong Ping Village, Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastry wewre on these mountains.

5. Fishing Village - Tai O
Just a small fishing village - but loved that we got to walk around to enjoy the relaxing vibes, pet some freely roaming cats and enjoy the delicious local street food. Boat ride around the stilted houses of the village and out to catch the dolphins frolicking in the water was quite a treat too. The seafood was cheap and exceptionally fresh. They sell lots of dried seafood too as food souvenirs.

6. Disneyland
With kids, we definitely wanted to enjoy Disneyland. Been to Shanghai and Tokyo's - and would say the queues here are somewhat shorter (...it could be because everything here's more expensive than the other two parks). And of course we were here to enjoy the world's first - "World of Frozen" that also coincides with "Disney 100" celebration - so lots of cool souvenirs this year. Quite cool that they have Disney-themed Godiva chocolates too.

7. Shopping - Citygate and... 11 Skies???
Citygate mall has lots of outlet stores, and plenty of food options.
But what we were even more excited about (thought it would have opened when we visited but it hasn't) was the 11 Skies mall - touted to be the largest - with about 800 stores and 1200 dining options - feels like it's gonna be three times larger than Citygate (which was, already a very large mall).

It seemed cool that they've features like Kidzania, Arte Museum (like the Art Science Museum of Singapore's Marina Bay Sands), Timeless Flight Ride (kinda like Soaring in Tokyo Disneyland / i-Ride in Taipei). Found out that this mall is being developed by the same developer of K11 Musea... which is the newest cool mall in Tsim Sha Tsui along Victoria Harbour.

So if we were to visit Hong Kong again,
Would love to stay at Lantau again,
but definitely after the 11 Skies Mall is fully open, perhaps after 2025!

It was a small island for the tourist to visit Ngong Ping village, Po Lin Monastry and the Big Bhuddha.
Hope there are more activities on the island.

LANTAU BLUE TAXI SOCIETY - shockingly BAD

Lovely Tai O Fishing Village and historic spots in Tung Chung are well worth the visit.

The Lantau Blue Taxi Society Sevice was the most appalling experience.

We called 5 times in 45 minutes this Blue Service Society number to book a taxi back from Tai-O at 4.30 pm and were ignored or told No taxi available. Worse still, we could hear the woman who answered the phone was playing mahjong and didn't even bother picking up after 40 min.

I have my 94 year old mother leaning on her walking stick for 45 min wondering if we might sleep on the street of Tai-O that night!

Out of frustration, we had to call the hotel to get another Blue taxi service which came in 5 minutes.

How the Lantau Tourism Bureau snd the hotels tolerate this Service is a mystery.

Every time we visit hong Kong, we make it a habit to visit lantau Island and the big Buddha. The cable car experience is always nice, not only for kids but for grownups as well. Near the cable car station at the mtr is a mall with factory outlet shops, great for shopping and dining. Queues for cable car tickets are long, as you'll find many tourists visiting. I would suggest buying tickets online, which give you the privilege of skipping the line. We, for example, got out crystal canin tickets via klook. Best time to visit is in the morning or before lunch.
