Enjoyable half day trip to visit the Buda. We took the cable car, I would advise to go early because as the day go by you'll have long queues. The trip by cable car has beautiful views of the mountains. The walk to the Big Buda it's also very nice

Was a truly amazing experience. Thousands of people sharing our adventure but that's to be expected. The nearly 300 stairs aren't as daunting or hard to negotiate as I thought. Considering how many people are walking up and down, there wasn't much pushing and barging past. The Buddha is majestic to behold whether you go up the stairs or not.... More

What a shame ! Only the big Buddha and the view are nice. Even if you just go there to see the big Buddha and the view, you will fall into a fake place full of shops. Well, all this big Buddha is cheap and fake.

We were on the cable cars by 10:30 in the morning & got over to the Buddha before it got too crowded which was good. It's a definite must see !! Walking through the village there are... More

The profile of Buddha is totally changed and it looks too plump . The marvel of Buddha sitting on such a height is something to be appreciated . The lunch served there is totally veg but the lunch served to people who come in tours is very limited , Only one table with about 10 people the portions served were... More

The visit was part of a great day out with a cultural and spiritual feel to it. There is a lot of walking involved even if you don't negotiate the 200 plus steps up to the Buddha.The vegetarian lunch was very good.

We got there not around 10ish and there was a long queue, 2 queues, 1 was shorter - there are people selling tickets there and what you do is they give you a voucher and when you get to the top you actually buy the ticket but you choose between a cheaper 1(long queue) and expensive 1 (shorter) (a bit...

Access is either by the New Lantao bus service from the MTR Tung Chung Station or by ferry from the Central Pier no 6 and New Lantao bus... More
