A day trip to Ngong Pong Village to cost the Big Buddha is an experience. The cable car trip is in my view the nicest way to get there. Do take the last 268 stairs to the top of the Buddha.

The site opens at 10am. I'm not aware of gaining access to any of the facilities prior to that time. Be mindful that your key decision point is in Tung Chung. Your bus will take you that far. Then your choice is the... More
