After getting on the cable car, the views are amazing, just take your time to wander around this little island and visit the Big Buddah, take a leisurely stroll around the grounds and stop at the various shops for a browse or purchase, stop and have a break at many of the restaurants or coffee shops around too..

We took the Ngong Ping 360 cable car with the crystal bottom. The ride to Lantau island is around 25 to 30 minutes. The view from the cable car is gorgeous. As you reach the top, one can see the Big Buddha from the cable car. Once you are dropped at the island, it’s a 10 minute walk to the monasteries. That’s where we went first. After a vegetarian lunch at the monastery, we took a bus up to the Big Buddha. Many people climb the 250 odd steps as well. Once there, you can see the museum (save your lunch coupon/receipt) for entry, from the museum you can climb right at the top of the statue.
We also visited the Tai O fishing village and took a boat around. A village on stilts, this is famous for its fishing culture and seafood (though we didn’t try anything here).
All in all, a day absolutely well spent.

You can reach this via MTR. It is the island where the Airport is. Enjoy 360 degrees view via the Cable Car.

Plan on going to Lantau to have lunch at one of the few local fish restaurants. The boat ride over is very pleasant however check the return schedule carefully.

The cable car affords remarkable views of the harbor, Lantau island, the airport - how often do you get to look down on a plane!? and the rugged hills of the island. The Big Buddha and Monastery are worth a visit. The shopping between the cable car and the Buddha are kitschy, but ok.
