Start off your day with a 25-minute ride on the Ngong Ping Cable Car, as you take in sights of one of Hong Kong’s largest islands. Your cable car stops when you get up to Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha). Here you can learn about Buddhism, and climb up 268 steps to the top. Also, visit the Po Lin Monastery and the Hall of 10,000 Buddhas.
From there, take a 20-minute public bus ride over to the village of Tai O. Stop by two shrimp sauce production factories and a Taoist temple. Stop for lunch at the old police station, which is now a UNESCO-recognized heritage hotel. Hop aboard a boat, and cruise as you spot stilt houses built right up on the water.
Once your time on the island has come to an end, travel back to Tung Chung MTR station by public bus.
