Tian Tan Buddha - Review
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.

Tian Tan Buddha, Hong Kong Reviews
The cable car ride to the village is amazing in itself. It’s long, but the views are incredible. The village is quaint and peaceful. Crowds were not too bad in October. Ate lunch at a restaurant, shopped around a bit. Then went to the Buddha. Beautiful painted monastery at the base of the Buddha. A fairly easy stair climb to the top of the statue, plenty of room to hike up and down. Interesting information inside, and stunning views of the surrounding countryside below.
Great place for a visit. I experienced a great change in the weather in May 2018 with bright sunshine followed by rain and then the fog. .. amazing experience indeed. This place needs to have more signage. ..so that you can go to the different places around at ease. Washroom at the entrance of this place was very clean and we'll maintained. There should be more choice of food stalls to cater to foreign tourists.
Wonderful place to visit. Cable car to the small village and a walk up to see the Buddha, very impressive and a small museum underneath the statue. There are a lot of flat sections to rest of needed on the way up to the Buddha. Big tourist attraction, so could be busy. It was slightly cooler here than in Hong Kong City, this meant that it was 27 instead of 30 degrees - it may make a difference at different times of year. Well worth a trip!
This is an interesting monument of a huge Buddha. There are 200+ steps if you walk up but you can also get a bus ride if you want too. It is impressive and the views are amazing plus you can get some great photos too. I would suggest you walk up as that is the true experience, once at the tops there is a museum and a few shops that sell products that support the monks that live there. I would say that there are a reasonable number of tourists so its not too busy.
A great visit and retreat. I recommend the cable car (have used bus also) for the great view and you can also see the tracks through the mountains along the way. Beautiful place to be at. Make sure you have enough time to spend to see all of the attractions as some of them have set times. You might need at least 4 - 5 hours to see everything.
