Lantau Island is twice the size of Hong Kong Island, but only a fraction of the population live here, leaving its beaches, hills and national parks to visitors to enjoy.

The highlight is the Po Lin monastery and temple, reached by the Ngong Ping 360 cable car on the western side of the island. The temple’s amazing seated bronze Giant Buddha is the world’s largest.

Hong Kong Disneyland offers more familiar entertainment, and the island’s fishing villages, walking trails, beaches and seafood restaurants are also popular.

Practical Info

Lantau is the largest of Hong Kong's outlying islands. Ferries leave from Central on Hong Kong Island, arriving at Discovery Bay and Mui Wo. The ferry trip takes around 40 minutes.

Hong Kong Airport is at Chek Lap Kok on Lantau.
