Description

Discover a pristine beach, a traditional fishing village, lush valleys, soaring mountains and spiritual enlightenment on Hong Kong's largest island.

Board a local ferry through the Harbour to Mui Wo, located at the southern side of Lantau Island. From there, we'll board a coach to the beautiful Cheung Sha beach. Proceed to the unique Tai O fishing village, where Tanka boat people still live in their stilts houses.

The coach then takes a winding road up the mountain to Ngong Ping Plateau where the Tian Tan Giant Buddha sits majestically close to the Po Lin Monastery. Ample time is allowed for a guided tour of the Po Lin Monastery and Giant Buddha Exhibition Hall. A short walk away is the Wisdom Path where an ancient prayer is inscribed on a series of wooden columns set in a figure of eight to signify infinity.

A vegetarian meal is served in the Monastery, followed by optional visits to the culturally themed Ngong Ping Village. The tour ends with a spectacular cable car ride aboard the Ngong Ping 360 offering stunning views going down to Tung Chung.

Well worth the money...a great day!

Rather a long way round, picking up other people from their hotels, and then driving to the ferry terminal on Hong Kong island. Ov...er the harbour by catamaran to Lantau. Nice clean comfortable minibus waiting for us on Lantau. Guide spoke good English. Short comfort stop at a beach cafe with a view, and then a walk through a fishing village on stilts. So interesting, and nice short boat ride round the village as well. Continued across Lantau to the amazing Buddha. Good explanation of Buddhism and the building of the statue. Loved the place and the atmosphere there. Lunch at the monastery was excellent. Then we were off on our trip home, but not by cable car, which was closed for three weeks of repairs. Still waiting for partial refund on this, as you must have known about it when you took our booking. Even so, it is a tour everyone should do if you visit HK. more

This was a terrific tour from start to finish. The coach was a couple of minutes early picking us up and it was a comfortable coac...h.and the short ferry ride wasn't too bad. It was our treatment whilst on Lantau that really made the day.The coach from Lantau Tours was good and our Guide, Ryan, was excellent. His knowledge and passion for his home made it very memorable for us. The lunch was very good but the highlight was the trip down on the cable car which was spectacular. The best thing I can say about this tour is that I would probably repeat it if I visit Hong Kong again. more
