Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Cable Car Group Tour with Hotel Pickup in Hong Kong Island

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
This sightseeing tour includes pickup from select hotels in the Central and East areas of Hong Kong Island and transfer to Lantau Island. Take a cable car tour to visit the Tian Tan Big Buddha Statue at the PO Lin Monastery and take a boat ride to explore Tai O, a quaint fishing village where the houses are on stilts. A vegetarian lunch is also included with the tour.
  • Avoid any lines at the Ngong Ping 360 cable car with your prebooked ticket
  • Relax with door-to-door transport from your Hong Kong or Kowloon hotel
  • Hear the history of the Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery from a guide
  • Enjoy firsthand views of Tai O’s famous stilt houses during a boat ride
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, ascend Lantau Peak via the Ngong Ping 360, a cable car that connects Tung Chung to the Po Lin Monastery and one of the world’s largest outdoor Buddhas, the Tian Tan Buddha.
As the urban sights slip into the distance, the views are soon replaced with sweeping vistas of the South China Sea. Gaze at Hong Kong International Airport and admire aerial views of the Tian Tan Buddha before you visit it.
The route from the cable car to the Buddha is steep, but if you decide to walk, the views make the 268-step climb worthwhile. Otherwise, take the shuttle bus and then visit the Buddha museums and Po Lin Monastery, a pilgrimage site considered sacred by Buddhists.
Relax over a vegetarian lunch at the monastery and then travel by coach to Tai O. Cruise around its stilt houses, contrasting the fishing village to heady Hong Kong today.
Finally, return to your Hong Kong hotel.
