Get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city with this escape to Lantau Island. Lantau Island is the largest island of Hong Kong, yet it has a fairly small population. Most of the island is covered by forests and the only major town is Tung Chung with small villages scattered all over the place. Leaving your hotel at about 9:00, we take a taxi or MTR to Tung Chung, where we take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car up to Ngong Ping village, for a tour of the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and surrounding area (cable car opens 10:00 on weekdays, 09:00 on sat/sun/PH). The twenty-minute cable car ride gives a beautiful 360° view of the mountains of Lantau Island, Tung Chung town and Hong Kong airport. The Big Buddha is the world's largest bronze sitting buddha statue at over 20m in height. The next stop we make is Tai O fishing village, famous for its stilt houses. It is home to several ancient temples. We take a tour around the village and visit the temples, finishing with a 20-minute boat tour of the village and the nearby waters, home to the famous Chinese pink dolphins We then enjoy a leisurely seafood lunch in Tai O, after which we catch a taxi to Mui Wo, a 30-minute scenic ride along the southern shores to the other end of Lantau Island. There we take a walking tour of Mui Wo village and its surroundings (takes 1 1/2 - 2 hours), we visit the Silvermine Waterfall and the beautiful Man Mo Temple. We then take a fast ferry back to Central, returning to your hotel around 18:00.
