While the Buda statue itself is an impressive thing, the overall surroundings have a distinctive theme park feeling. Also, be aware that the Buda is a new thing, built in the 90's, so not for history buffs...

The day I went the cable cars were not working due to maintenance repairs so I had to catch the 23 bus from the outlet mall which was about a 35min ride but it was well worth the wait. The views are spectacular!

I would visit just for the cable car - the sweeping views of the Bay Area are amazing - but the Buddha itself is a much better view from far away than up close. The surrounding area is cool (but touristy), but we were impressed...More

Buy your cable car tickets online for priority clearance. Otherwise you will stand in HUGE queues!!!! We bought our tickets through TripAdvisor and made the glass bottom cable car experience choice. Best decision! The ride up was awesome, even for me suffering from extreme vertigo....More

This is a Must see in Hong Kong, you can do this before an afternoon flight if needed if you start early in the morning. It opens at 10 am but there is a lot to do up there with hiking trails and souvenir stores...More

To really embrace the culture it must be a destination to visit. You do not have to take a cable car as there is bus access. I do like how the commercial side is kept away at the cable car station, leaving the temple and...More
