If the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong gets to much for you, an escape to Lantau Island, might be just the thing for you.
One of the most popular sights to see on the island is the Tian Tan Buddha. This is the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze buddha. It sure lives up to its expectation, and is very very large indeed and well worth seeing.
The statue is located very close to the Po Lin Monestary, and is known to symbolize the harmonious relationship between man, nature, people and religion.
Its one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong, and I would advise it to any visitor to Hong Kong.

Address: Lantau Island close to Po Lin Monestary
Directions: Take the MTR to Tung Chung station which is close to the Airport, then from Tung Chung Station take bus 23 to Po Lin, where the Buddha is.
