A Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride is perhaps the best way of visiting Lantau Island. This 20-minute ride from Tung Chung lets you explore mesmerizing views of the surrounding natural beauty, enjoy lush green scenes and discover mesmerizing mountains passing right under your feet.
An Overdose of Nature
The Ngong Ping 360 presents fascinating views of the local flora and fauna of Tung Chung Bay, Lantau Country Park and South China Sea. The ride is spectacular on its own, but you’re better served by boarding the Crystal Cabin, the perfect way to enjoy an out-of-the-world experience. These glass-bottom cabins are incredible, for they let you see into the abyss below and it’s particularly mesmerizing for the kids. You also catch views of the iconic Big Buddha statue and Ngong Ping Village before descending into the terminal.
A Blast of Culture
Step out of the cable car and you’re exposed to an overdose of culture as the 1.5 hectare Ngong Ping Village comes into view. With an array of shops and restaurants to choose from, you’re sure to have a blast here. There are street performers everywhere and you see acrobatic shows and kung-fu demonstrations all around you. Local attractions include the Walking with Buddha presentation, Ngong Ping Tea House and Monkey’s Tale Theater.
The World’s Largest Buddha
Mere steps away from the village lies the largest Buddha statue on the planet, the bronzed Tian Tan, more popularly known as Big Buddha. This 34-meter statue presents an outdoor seated Buddha, but the best experience involves climbing 250 steps to see the statue from up close.
Po Lin Monastery
The monastery was but a mere temple in the 60s, but it really upped the game in the year 1970 as grander monastery buildings opened up to present an exquisite attraction that managed to attract people from all over to Lantau Island. The main hall is full of Lotus flower patterns with three Buddha statues taking up space on three intricately carved flowers. Don’t miss out on the amazing Buddhist food served at the monastery either. The food served here conforms to Buddhist principles and only includes oysters, vegetables and bean products. Bean curd desserts and mango-filled rice dumplings are very popular.
The Road to Enlightenment
Wisdom Path refers to a series of 38 wooden monuments that contain verses from the Heart Sutra, one of the best-known prayers of the world. The monuments showcase the Chinese version of the prayer and are arranged in an ‘infinity’ pattern. Located at a short walk from the Big Buddha, the Wisdom Path also offers some of the best views of the South China Sea.
Tai O Fishing Village
You can also add the Tai O Fishing Village as an exciting side tour. This journey takes you into a picturesque village located in the midst of mountains right beside a beautiful coastline. There’s a lot of activity around the harbor and the place is truly a photographer’s dream. You can easily spend an hour walking around the area, exploring the fishermen’s market or taking one of the boats up the harbour to catch a glimpse of those stunning pink dolphins.
End your journey with mesmerizing sunset views as you take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride back to Tung Chung watching the setting sun envelop the surrounding area in a plethora of colors.
