Know More about this tour

Hotel pickup in the Kowloon area begins in the morning. Board your coach for the transfer to Lantau Island.  Arriving at Tung Chung, climb into the Ngong Ping Cable Car and take in 360-degree views of the South China Sea and North Lantau Country Park during the 3-mile (5.7-km) journey. 

At Ngong Ping, snap photos of the Tian Tan Buddha, a 112-foot-tall (34-meter) bronze statue reached via 268 steps. Your guided tour includes admission to three floors of a museum beneath the Big Buddha, including the Hall of Benevolent Merit, Hall of Remembrance, and a relic of Sakyamuni (Gautama Buddha). Continue to Po Lin Monastery, perhaps the most visited Buddhist temple in Hong Kong and a pilgrimage site for Buddhists from all over the world. Here, you're served chef-prepared vegetarian Chinese cuisine for lunch. 

After returning by cable car, board your coach to Tai O fishing village, once the largest inhabited settlement on Lantau Island. The stilt houses on the waterfront — reached via a boat ride — offer a glimpse into Hong Kong's past and provide a striking contrast with the modern city.

  • Was an absolutely great day out. Prompt pick up, excellent guide can't remember his name. Booked the crystal cable car and it was amazing, even though I don't like heights I still enjoyed it. It is a really long ride there and back. Loved that this tour was a skip the queue as the line was very long both ways. The monastery was good and surprisingly my husband enjoyed the vegetarian lunch I didn't tell him that part. The giant Buddha was so interesting and we really enjoyed the boat ride. All up it was an absolute great day!

  • Interesting tour but dreadful guide named Pandora who was frightened of losing members of the group and consequently spent of lot of time shouting at us and getting us in line to be counted.

  • We went on this trip yesterday. Prompt pick up. Our friendly guide Marco was great, helpful friendly and funny! Fabulous trip. Best trip of our stay in HK. Lunch at monastery was really delicious and we had great company in the crystal cable car which was well worth the extra cost. Would highly recommend this excursion Using this company.

  • Although the elements of this tour could be done on your own without a tour, this tour was wonderful. It was very convenient to
    get picked up at the hotel by motorcoach and transported to Lantau Island, along the way learning some history and information
    about Lantau from our fabulous and funny tour guide Marco. It was also nice to have transportation to Tai O fishing village after
    visiting the Giant Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery and the opportunity to have a traditional chinese lunch together as a group..
    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it as a day trip when visiting Hong Kong.

  • This is a well worthwhile trip encompassing a cable car ride one of the longest single lift -no car change, in the world, which takes some 25 minutes to complete, the tour of Po Lin monastery, a tour of the museum beneath the Big Buddha with its bone relic, free time to walk around and view the Buddha and Po Lin monastery, the visit to the Tai O fishermans village with its stilt houses and a boat ride in the hope of glimpsing the rear Chinese white dolphin. The vegetarian lunch provided whilst at the Po Lin monastery was also surprisingly good. The trip shows a different facet of Hong Kong, with Lantau island being far removed from the hectic centre of Hong Kong island.

    Although the village into which you arrive following the cable car ride, to visit the Po Lin monastery and view the Big Buddha is a modern take on a traditional Chinese style village, the Po Lin monastery more than makes up for the artificial tourist village atmosphere.

    This is a trip I would recommend.

  • Fantastic! Great day, so many wonderful places to see, great lunch plus our guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour

  • This day tour to visit Lantau Island was an exceptional experience. Our tour guide was wonderful and the trip itself was amazing. The Crystal Cable Car was also worth the additional price.

  • Great tour to see parts of Hong Kong I wouldn and #39;t see on my own. Definitely recommend.

  • Great day trip not to be missed. Guide was wonderful and vegetarian lunch superb.

  • It was difficult to understand the tour guide. We were taken to a jewelry store when there was no mention of it in the itinerary so seeing the Big Buddha was a bit rushed.
