If you’re visiting Lantau Island on your own from Hong Kong, there are plenty of sights you might miss. During this Big Buddha and Lantau Island tour, the day is planned so you don’t have to worry about wasting any time trying to figure out directions or other details. Along with a ride on the Ngong Ping 360 cable car, visit Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery, Tai O fishing village, and Big Buddha statue.
What to Expect
This Big Buddha and Lantau Island tour starts with a hotel pickup from either Hong Kong or Kowloon. You’ll be transported to the express ferry, where you’ll cruise from Hong Kong Harbour to Lantau Island.

On the island, ride in a comfortable coach to Tai O, and spend some time exploring the fishing village with its over-water stilt houses.

Next, travel in a Ngong Ping 360 cable car up to see the Big Buddha and Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery. Enjoy lunch at the monastery.

Your Lantau Island tour ends with a drop-off back at your hotel in Hong Kong or Kowloon.

A Great Day!!!

The excursion to Lantau Giant Buddha, Fishing Village, and Cable Car was a wonderful way to spend the day. The best part was the views from the cable car. Absolutely amazing.
