Long ride from HK, but a very cool place. Make sure to walk the steps to the Buddha, and also go to see the temple in the back. Go early as it can be hot!

I went in July 2015 not 2017. The Nongsa cable car ride is the best part of the travel there. The vegetarian lunch at the nunnery was commercial and not very authentic monastic food. The big buddha is too small viewed from afar and huge...More

The cable car was not working when I went so I got a replacement bus up and down but it should be back by now. It is only a short walk from Tung Chung on the MTR. Well worth a visit.
