A decade ago, Lantau Island housed little more than a few sleepy fishing villages and the Hong Kong airport. With the addition of an MRT station and the establishment of Hong Kong Disneyland, the island made its first real bit for a spot on the Hong Kong tourist map. Today, Ngong Ping 360 is one of the island’s premiere attractions, and apart from the cable car ride, is the famous Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) and neighboring Po Lin Monastery

The linchpin of Ngong Ping 360 is the 25-minute cable car ride that ferries visitors from the Tung Chung metro station to the top of the Ngong Ping highland where the Big Buddha statue sits, gazing out over the South China Sea.

Once you reach the top, you’ll disembark at the Ngong Ping Village, a themed cultural village fashioned after a traditional Chinese village. Here you’ll find a few shops and restaurants, as well as two more Ngong Ping 360 attractions, Walking with Buddha and Monkey’s Tale Theatre. Walking With Buddha is an interactive museum recounting the life of Siddhartha Gautama and the origins of Buddhism. Monkey’s Tale Theatre presents a kid-friendly CGI animated short. The Ngong Ping Village, has a few shopping and dining options, including a vegetarian restaurant in the nearby Po Lin Monastery.

Ngong Ping 360 also offers a discounted Sky-Land-Sea Day Pass for visitors wishing to further explore Lantau Island. The pass gives you access to the 360 Cable Car, unlimited bus rides on the Lantau lines and a boat excursion from the quaint fishing village of Tai-O.
