Big Buddha at Lantau Island

We took the MTR to Tung Chung MTR station where it is just a few minutes walk to Ngong Ping 360, the cable car which brings you to Lantau Island. You can find outlet shopping just next to Tung Chung MTR station, so do cater some time for shopping there if you are interested.

Views from the cable car

 Once you reached Lantau Island, you will be able to see the Big Buddha.

Follow the signs and walk along the street and you will get nearer and nearer to the Big Buddha

Finally, we reached the foot of the Big Buddha. Wah.. need to climb so many steps to go up there. But along the way, we saw many aunties and uncles climbing too, even though it seemed very hard on them. So, we youngsters all the more shouldn't be afraid of the climb! Here we go!

Finally, we reached the top! The views were not bad, if not for the low lying clouds.

Okay, time to take the steps down. It was like 100 times easier going down!

There're some vegetarian stalls at the foot of the Big Buddha, so you can have your meal there after the exercise!

That pretty much sums up what we did at the Big Buddha, didn't explore Lantau Island much as we were flying back to SG soon.
