This relatively young giant idol of Lord Gautama is the biggest outdoor Buddha, and possibly the only computerized one (the bell inside the Buddha is struck electronically, 108 times a day).

From there, it’s really a photographers delight, considering the high look over the surrounding countryside. Or one can head into the podium, which actually is a three-storied gallery–cum–museum (there’s an entry fee for this). There are several approaches to the Buddha that make for a nice walk, including a two and a half kilometers footpath leading to the Lantau Tea Garden (which itself isn’t all that attractive), or the Ngong Ping Trail.

Make sure to take the cable car on the way down.
