"Big Buddha" Lantau Island Tip by XenosUK
Lantau Island, Hong Kong: 235 reviews and 610 photos
Visiting the big Buddha at the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau is a must. At 202 tons it's believed to be the biggest of its kind in the world and it certainly impressed us!
It's free to visit the monastery and climb the steps to the Buddha, but you have to buy a ticket to actually go inside the statue, where there's a museum with relics of the Buddha. The price of the ticket (about $25HK) also includes a snack meal in the veggie restaurant at the bottom.
We got a bowl of noodles and vegetables, a couple of dim sum and a can of coke, so we thought it was well worth the money and very much appreciated after the climb up and down all the steps.
