After taking the cable car and a short walk and through the village and up the promenade you are greeted with a jaw dropping site of the Big Buddha The last few hundred steps are worth the trek

This place is a must visit if you ever visit Hong Kong. Do not miss the opportunity to see the wonderful statue of Big Buddha as close as possible.

The cable car ride takes about 20-25 minutes and there is lots to do at the other end, but if you went early and divided your day between the two then it shouldn’t be a problem.
