"big buddha on lantau island" Lantau Island Tip by taurus1973

Lantau Island, Hong Kong: 235 reviews and 610 photos

the big buddha on lantau island is a must see for everyone. its alot harder to get to than most places as its a 1 hour ferry ride to lantau island from central ferry piers then another 45 bus ride from silvermine bay on lantau island. buts its well worth the trip as its a great place. i reccommend going there very early in the morning for the best photos as the sun tends to hinder photos by midday. the view of the mountains are great too, and the po lin monastery is very impressive. for hiking nuts, try the 3-4 hour hike from silvermine bay to discovery bay. on the way you will pass a trappist monastery. at discovery bay you can eat at the numerous restaurants at the plaza there and get the ferry back to central from there. in 2006 a disleyland will be open on lantau island.
