"Lantau Island's Big Buddha" Ngong Ping by Confucius

Ngong Ping Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 50 photos


The Big Buddha on Lantau Island welcomes you. (Just don't stand there!)

There is a direct bus to Po Lin Monastery from Tung Chung bus
station. Tung Chung is a town near the airport on Lantau Island and is the last stop on the MTR train line. You can get a shuttle bus from the airport (about HK$5) which will take you directly to the Tung Chung bus station if you're looking to do something during an extended layover in Hong Kong.

Coin Operated Buddhist Statues

Somehow Chinese people believe that throwing coins at the statues will make them move or something.
