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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our guide, Henry, was fantastic! Thank you, Henry, for your kindness and wisdom. The visit to the fishing village was enlightening, the vegetarian lunch at the monastery was delicious and the cable car ride back to HK Island was impressive. We had a great time and I highly recommend this day trip from Hong Kong.

This tour was worth every penny. I went on a very hot and humid day and it was still comfortable b/c of the great air conditioned buses and restaurant so we got to cool off regularly. The sights were absolutely incredible. The day was packed with lots of different things to do and guide was great!

I booked the trip for 4 , 2 adults and 2 of my kids. The tour was well planned and is really worth if the day is not too hot :- . Hotel pickup was prompt, Ferry ride was really good and from there a bus tour of the Lantau islands. I felt, the tour agency could have avoided stopping just 15-20 mins at the beach, instead should have taken directly to the Buddha where one could spend more time. The fishing village tour was short and good, not much to see and experience, however, just a different experience. From here we were taken to the Giant Buddha, this is where i did not like the time give to us, we were just given 20 mins, which was really not good enough to spend time there. One would easily require at least 40 mins at this place. I would really suggest the tour agency to skip the beach break and allow that time here. Post Giant Buddha tour, we were taken to at the base for the lunch. Lunch was really good.
Next stop is the cable car ride which was the 2nd best in the trip where the tour typically ends and we are dropped back to our respective hotels.
Overall, the tour was really good and my family enjoyed it.
