What You Can Expect

Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Your friendly guide and expert driver will collect you from your Hong Kong hotel and transport you to the express ferry that will take you across Hong Kong Harbor to the shores of Lantau Island. Head to Cheung Sha Beach—the longest beach in the area—on a comfortable coach bus, then tour the fishing village of Tai O, where you’ll see traditional stilted home and learn more about daily local life.

This Lantau Island Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong will then take you to the top of Ngong Ping Plateau where you’ll see the Tian Tan Buddha at Po Lin Monastery. This famous statue stretches more than 111 fee t (34 meters) high and is the largest seated, outdoor bronze Buddha on earth.

Take a tour of Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery and wander through the halls of the Giant Buddha Exhibition. Enjoy the quiet contemplation of the Wisdom Path, where ancient prayers are written on wooden columns that represent infinity. 

Savor a typical vegetarian meal at the monastery before venturing on to an optional cultural village tour. This magnificent day ends as you travel from the mountain top by Ngong Ping 260 sky rail cable car to the Ngong Ping Plateau. The 25-minute trip offers up some of the most spectacular natural views and is not to be missed. Once you’ve arrived at Tung Chung Village you’ll make your way back to Hong Kong Island or Kowloo by coach bus.

Giant Buddha is BIG. We started with a bus ride to the ferry terminal, then a ferry to Lantou, and another bus across the island to Tai O fishing village. Our walk and boat tour through Tai O was fascinating. The sights, the smells, the shops, the homes, the tiny walking streets - wow - a different world. Then we went to see Buddha, and the monastery. Buddha is big, the monastery features lots of gold, and the veg lunch was excellent I'm not veg. The 5.7 Km gondola ride back to the airport town was awesome. The bus ride back to HG less so. All in all, a great day.

A great tour, very enjoyable, with a fantastic guide. The whole day ran smoothly, and we covered a lot including the fishing village, the Great Buddha and the cable car ride. The cable car ride was a perfect finish to the day, with beautiful views over the airport and land. Would recommend this tour.

Excellent tour. Seemed to take a bit too long to get to the Hong Kong ferry to get the tour started, but I understand they need to get everyone together somehow. Our guide, Peter, was great. The ferry ride over to Lantau was interesting the island was really beautiful and serene. Enjoyed seeing the Big Buddha and visiting the fishing village. The beaches were beautiful as were the sights from the mountaintop and from the cable cars on the way down from the mountain. I loved that we never backtracked every place we went was new. Highly recommend to people looking for an experience outside the hustle and bustle of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
