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 - Write a Review

  • Nice thing to combine with the peak tram in one day, some line ups here for the gondola especially coming down but the minor wait was worth it. I found two things especially interesting: the construction details of the Buddha and the cows on the way there. Seriously the cows were so friendly and happy. Give them a pet and they want to lick the salt off your arms, they really go to town if you let them.

  • Absolutely magestic statue. Although you may encounter a line, it’s very well organized and it moves relatively quickly. Buy your tickets online to save time. It will speed up the process once you’re there.

  • One of the incredible places that Hong Kong has to offer! Beautifully crafted on the hills. Superb view and a lot of trails that adventures people can enjoy trekking on. People can enjoy the cable car too! Opened until 5:30pm!

  • Must see if you have more than a day in Hong Kong. Serene setting and a majestic Buddha atop a small mountain. The temple at the base is worth seeing - it has the 10,000 Buddhas. Grab some delightful veggie Dim Sum from the attached Deli. As you walk back to the bus terminus, the usual tourist trap with a lot of swanky shops will welcome you. Worth it! We took a bus (N23) from Tung Chung station - about a 30 minute ride.

  • Incredibly impressive. Lovely area, even when it's cloudy outside! It's well worth the trip, the tourism hasn't taken away the place's charm. Stay away from the Walking With Buddha tour though.
