Itinerary
Stop At:  
Lantau island
Lantau Island is often referred to as the ‘Lungs of Hong Kong’ because it is so green and underdeveloped. Take a tour of Lantau with us and visit the awe-inspiring Big Buddha and the wonderfully quaint stilt village of Tai O. Our Private Lantau Tours last 7 hours, 8 with a hotel pick-up. Your Lantau private tour starts with a ride on the Ngong Ping Cable Car. You will be treated to the most wonderful views of Lantau Country Park and the airport as you travel over the back of the island for 25 minutes. Our destination is the famous Big Buddha. Here you will learn about Buddhism, climb the 268 steps to the Buddha, visit the Po Lin Monastery and the hall of 10,000 Buddhas. From Ngong Ping, it is a 20-minute bus ride to Tai O, affectionately known as the Venice of Hong Kong. Tai O is one of the few remaining places in Hong Kong where you can still see stilt houses over the water. Tai O used to be a big community but due to the decline of the fishing industry it, like Venice, is now primarily a tourist destination, for both overseas visitors and Hong Kongers escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. Tai O is still known for its traditional production of shrimp paste and for its colourful seafood market.

Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery
The remote Po Lin Monastery, hidden away by lush mountains, became a popular attraction when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed ‘the Buddhist World in the South’. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colourful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents.

Stop At:  
Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha)
Tian Tan Buddha or the Big Buddha is the second largest outdoor sitting bronze Buddha statue in the world. Sitting 34 metres high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia. The eyes, lips, incline of the head and right hand, which is raised to deliver a blessing to all, combine to bring a humbling depth of character and dignity to the massive Buddha, which took 12 years to complete. Climb the 268 steps for a closer look at this remarkable statue, and to enjoy the sweeping mountain and sea views that can be seen from its base.

Stop At:  
Tai O Stilt Houses
Tai O is home to the Tanka people, a community of fisher folk who’ve built their houses on stilts above the tidal flats of Lantau Island for generations. These unusual structures are interconnected, forming a tightly knit community that literally lives on the water. Their enchanting world is a photographer's paradise. The manually operated drawbridge that spans the narrow creek dividing the town replaced a rope-drawn ‘ferry’ that operated for over 85 years.

Stop At:  
Tai O
A visit to Heritage Hotel, dating from 1902, this building was formerly the Tai O Police Station and one of the earliest police stations built in the New Territories. It is situated on a small hill next to the Tai O Ferry Pier. The building was revitalised and converted into the Tai O Heritage Hotel in 2012. The hotel includes nine colonial-style rooms and suites with sea views and a roof-top restaurant serving Tai O specialties. The surrounding cannons, searchlight and guard towers have all been restored. Here you will be served lunch at the end of your tour.

Nice way to spend a day

Our tour guide was Richard and he was knowledgeable and helpful. He knows a lot of information about most things Lantua and its culture. It was very stress free we didn't need to hurry because we had spent too much time at any one place. Very easy to talk too and make conversation.

What a fantastic tour we had with Laura our guide, who was knowledgeable, sensitive to all the people in our group, and really pleasant to be with. The tour was really interesting, covering the Buddha, Temple and Tai O fishing village. It was a walking tour but was not too difficult or long and we were given the option to cut it a bit shorter if we wanted, but our group chose not to. The lunch was nice in an old converted British Police Station, which is now a very lovely hotel called the Heritage Hotel in Tai O. I joined the tour on my own and was lucky to be with some fun ladies from NYC. We asked Laura all sorts of questions including information about other things to do in Hong Kong and restaurants. Laura emailed us all the evening after the tour which was really impressive as it was a full day tour and we didn't get back until early evening. I would highly recommend this tour company.

Family fun on the 7-hour Lantau Island Tour Our extended family mum, dad, sister, husband and our family of four had a great one day tour of Lantau Island. Our guide, Laura, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Hong Kong and brimming with endless facts and fascinating stories. We started the day meeting Laura at Tung Chung Station, where we set off on a short walk to the 5.7km cable car, which goes through Lantau Country Park to Ngong Ping. Unfortunately, the weather was not great to us and we couldnt see much except the mist, but we still enjoyed the ride. We visited Tian Tan Big Buddha which was beautiful, and some of us climbed the 268 steps to the top. And some of us did not. From the top we took a look at the views and the Offering of the Six Devas statues symbolising the six perfections of generosity, morality, patience, zeal, meditation and wisdom. We also visited the Po Lin Monastery and the Hall of 10,000 Buddha and then took a local bus to the village of Tai O, a historic squatter town with all manner of interesting buildings built out over the water. After a short boat ride where we did see the 42km bridge being built between Hong Kong and Macau in the distance, but unfortunately we did not get to see any pink dolphins we stopped for lunch at the Tai O Heritage Hotel, the old police station. The highlight of the day for us was certainly Tai O village. After lunch we wandered through the town, stopping at the Lee family ship paste shop and the Mo Tai temple. It was hot and humid so we then enjoyed a beer at a local café jutting out over the water, before beginning our return trip to Tung Chung Station. It was a full day and most enjoyable, and at the end of our tour Laura even gave us recommendations for Dim Sum restaurants. Im generally not a fan of big tour groups but I would absolutely recommend Hello Hong Kongs small tours for a more personalised and fun approach.
