"Tian Tan - Giant Buddha at Po Lin" Lantau Island Tip by wandering360

Lantau Island, Hong Kong: 235 reviews and 610 photos

  Tian Tan - Giant Buddha at Po Lin
by wandering360

This is the world's largest seated outdoor bronze statue of the Buddha (34m, 250 tons). It is surrounded by a ring of Bodhisatvas offering various gifts to the Buddha.

To get here, you need to take a ferry from Central to Mui Wo (Sivermine Bay) and take the #2 bus to Po Lin (pronounced Bo Lin).

After many years, I finally remembered to update this....
Now, with the Ngong Ping 360 gondola ride, it is easier to take the MTR to Tung Chung. There, you will find not only the cable car station but also the Citygate "Factory Outlet" mall.
