Hong Kong is at your fingertips with your pass for one day of unlimited use on the MTR (Mass Transit Railway). With three different transportation options – trains, a light rail system and feeder buses – you can easily reach the Hong Kong attractions that most interest you.
The fast and easy-to-use MTR covers Hong Kong’s major districts, including stops at the boundary with mainland China. Across 10 different rail lines, you can see it all – perhaps head to Disneyland on the Disneyland Resort Line, or check out Central, Sheung Wan and Causeway Bay on the Island Line. Or use the light rail to travel between Yuen Long and Tuen Mun in the New Territories.

First up, use the first half of your Airport Express pass to get from the Hong Kong airport into the city. When you’re ready to go back to the airport, use your second trip on the Airport Express.

Itinerary:

There are four possible departure times for your Ngong Ping Village walking tour: 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:15pm and 3:15pm.

Option 1: One-day MTR Pass, Lantau Island Big Buddha Walking Tour and Ngong Ping Cable Car Ride (Standard Cabin):
Arrive at the Ngong Ping Cable Car and hop aboard to make your own way to the assembly point in Ngong Ping Village, where you’ll meet your guide. During the cable car ride, peer down from your standard cabin, enjoying the fabulous views as you travel across Lantau Island!

The 25-minute ride begins in Tung Chung, crosses Tung Chung Bay and gives you unforgettable vistas of the hills, the South China Sea, the Ngong Ping plateau and the Tian Tan Buddha.

Once you’ve met your guide, set off on your Big Buddha walking tour, heading first to Tai O fishing village to check out an example of a traditional fishing village home to the Tanka people. Hop aboard a boat for a brief ride around the village, where you can marvel at the homes built on stilts above the water and hear about the Tanka history as ‘fisherfolk’ (keep your eyes open for pink dolphins, too!).

Next, follow your guide to Ngong Pong Piazza, a plaza made up of four features – New Pai Lau, Bodhi Path, Di Tan and a Chinese landscaped garden – which enhance the traditional Buddhist design of Ngong Ping. As you walk, check out the statues of the ‘Twelve Divine Generals,’ who are said to be protectors of Buddhism.

Continue to Po Lin Monastery, the largest Buddhist temple in Hong Kong, and then finally reach the Big Buddha himself, siting serenely on the Ngong Ping plateau! After climbing the 200+ steps to get up to the statue, take a walk around the site. Admire the detail of the Buddha’s eyes, lips and raised right hand, and hear about its construction in the early 1990s (made of approximately 200 pieces of bronze!). As one of the tallest outdoor seated Buddha statues in the world, it’s one of Hong Kong’s most iconic sights and offers great photo opportunities.

Finally, end your walking tour in Ngong Ping Village, where you can browse the shops and restaurants and catch the cable car for your return ride.

Option 2: One-day MTR Pass, Lantau Island Big Buddha Walking Tour and Ngong Ping Cable Car Ticket (Crystal Cabin):
With this option, enjoy a round-trip ride on the Ngong Ping Cable Car from the comfort of a Crystal Cabin. With its glass bottom, the Ngong Ping Crystal Cabin provides you with unparalleled bird’s-eye views of Lantau Island and the surrounding scenery.

Option 3: Three-day MTR Pass, Round-trip Airport Express, Lantau Island Big Buddha Walking Tour and Ngong Ping Cable Car (Standard Cabin):
Upgrade to this ultimate Hong Kong travel pass combo to also include three days of unlimited travel on the MTR plus a round-trip ticket for the Airport Express. It's the perfect and most convenient way to travel and sightsee around Hong Kong!

  • A great tour! After collecting our tickets at Admiralty MTR station, we actually forgot to exchange our MTR pass and ended up continuing to use our Octopus card to get to Tung Chung. But we then used the the MTR pass the next day and it still ran for 24 hours. Once we got to Tung Chung it was relatively easy and quick to get our cable car tickets and onto the 360 cable car. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best on our day fog and mist so we didn't have the clearest views, but it was still a good experience. We had a small hiccup when we arrived at Ngong Ping as we hadn't been given our walking tour tickets in our pack, but it was quickly sorted out when we visited the Information Centre and we promptly joined a tour. We had Annie as our guide and she was fab! So informative and fun! The fishing village tour was great - we were given tokens to exchange for a couple of local snacks which was an added bonus! It was nice to finish up viewing the monastery and climbing the steps to the Big Buddha.

  • Tour itself good but a nightmare if you are staying in Kowloon and have to go to island to pickup tickets and train passes. Should be able to down the lot online and avoid an expensive taxi ride to go to HK island to pick up. Have used Viator in the past in different countries and been very happy but this left us frustrated.

  • Stop looking now and book this combo package! It is well worth it. You get unlimited rides on the super efficient MTR, a great cable car ride with amazing views and a guided Big Buddha tour which included a tour of a local fishing village and a boat ride! And airport express option is the best!

  • This was an amazing day! We also saw the fishing village at Tai O and went out on a boat to see pink dolphins. The Big Buddha and monastery are not to be missed. As for the cable car, don't get the crystal cabin if you are afraid of heights! I loved the views. Very handy to have the MTR pass too. Don't miss out on this, it had so much more than expected!

  • This package worked well for us as it included a round trip AE pass, 3 days unlimted MTR pass and the full day tour of Ngong Ping. Very useful to many travelers who want to explore the many facets and attractions of Hong Kong. Will definitely recommend this to my friends.

  • Highly recommend this option! AM.

  • This was well worth the money and we made use of every bit of what it included. Make sure not to miss the Bid Buddha.

  • Great experience!

  • Very frustrating. We cannot find viator at the airport. We were given a run around We bought our tickets directly from the vendors.

  • Have to set up walking tour but didn and #39;t get to use it. MTR 3 day pass is excellent for travel through out HK.
