well worth the journey from HK to see the giant Bronza Buddha and the statues at the bottom of the steps and see and speak to the monks next door. Places to sit and eat too.

It humbles! What a beautiful site and what a great way to get there the cable car ride was just too scenic. The Buddha himself was breathtaking regardless of your religious beliefs. A must visit if you are in Hong Kong.

A word of caution there are about 200 steps that need to be climbed to get to the top.

The Big Buddha is located on Lantau Island near the International Airport. There are two ways to get to the island one by ferry from the Central Terminal and a bus on the island to a stop near the Big Buddha. The Metro Octopus Card can be used for the entire trip. The other was is to take the Orange Line Metro to the last stop Tung Chung. About two blocks away is the Cable Car entrance that requires the purchase of a separate ticket from the cable car company. The lines are very long and it may take up to two hours before the cable car is available for the trip. The cable car drops the passengers off about 1/2 mile from the Big Buddha. The Big Buddha is on a high hill and there are several flights of stairs to reach the top.

Well, it speaks for itself that the Big Buddha is very impressive. Also for whatever reason I've always felt attracted to those big statues so it was a no brainer to visit this on a free day. I was fortunate to have a driver so got there easily from the airport

We only went for the cable car ride - which is good.
What is the point of the "Big Buddha"? - to attract tourists.
A ridiculous edifice.
