assorted attractions around lantau island.

Lantau Island was 2 1/2 times as Large as Hongkong Island and used to be remote. It was included in the outlying Islands Ferry and the ferry only lands in Silvermine Bay on the Upper Part of the Island in Mui Wo (I stayed in the hotel nearby once for a few days), from there you can have a ride to Ta'o Fishing Village, Po Lin Monastery, Giant Lantau Sitting Buddha, Cheung Sha Golden Beach, a prison and some other golden sand beaches. Lantau Was Remote so that you can enjoy the isolation and commune with nature.

NOT ANYMORE! since the Chep Lap Kok Airport was finished in 1997, Lantau ceased to be an island and now is connected to the mainland via the Tsing Ma and Tsing Yi Bridges and the Airport expressway and there are new settlements and attractions in it like DISNEYLAND!, Nong Ping 360, Tung Chung (a 5 mile cable car ride through mountains and oceans) and an the Airport Expressway. Now Lantau is Part of The Mainland!
