    This was an amazing place to have been to. All the buildings in the temple area are som majestic, the statues are impressive but the main centerpiece is of course the Buddha statue. It is awesome in its size, fantastic craftwork and you can not help but feeling peace and tranquility when looking at it.

    You get a very good view over the city from here. Though I would recommend that you go there on a day when the weather will allow you to see the view. If it is foggy/cloudy/rainy ti will take away from the experience.

    We take the 360 cable car ride to the Ngong Ping Village, the Tian Tan Buddha and the Wisdom Path landscape area, the cable car ride gives us a good experience seeing the surrounding beautiful scenery along the cable car from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping in 25 minutes. Excellent!

    We visited Lantau island in October.
    Our main destinations were,
    Tian Tan buddha
    Ngong Ping Village
    Wisdom path
    Tai O fishery village
    Fu Shan View Point
    Cheung sha beach

    We started our journey as early as possible. We arrived to Tung Chung around 10.30am. From MTR we walked pass through the bus terminal to the other side to take bus 23 to go to Ngong Ping Village. Wisdom path is also located in Ngong ping village. We covered all these areas within like 2hrs and took the bus No 21 to Tai O. Gets down at the last stop and keep walking through the village to and the trail path to Fu shan view point. It was a very sunny day there is no cover on top. We didnt spend much time there and we came to Cheung sha beach. You can take anybus that comes to Tung Chung from Tai O but you have to ask the bus driver to stop the bus to get off and the bech.

    There are many promotion deals for Sky 100 during Covid-19 lockdowns, and with a much reduced tourist presence it is actually an excellent chance to enjoy the great view offered. We went during a week day afternoon, enjoy the sunset sipping tea and then caught the splendor of the city with all its lights before leaving. There were very few people there and so we got to roam around and soak in the views to our hearts' desire. Note however it is not easy to get good photos due to all the reflection from the glass. Also pick a day with good visibility if at all possible.

    A friend of mine recommended to go and visit this place. I am not a practicing buddhist but I am surprised that there is a certain calmness of mind during meditation inside the nunnery. There are also some rock artifacts and plants showcased upon entering where there are philosophy/quotation on it. There is also a nearby park. It is easy to find this place. Must try!

    Consistently in the top 10 things to do in most Hong Kong travel guides, this is truly a memorable experience. However unlike the main attractions this is far less busy. Maybe due to its location or maybe because some walking is involved, I’m really not sure. But I can assure you the trip here is worth it.  The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is a wonderful addition to your Hong Kong itinerary . the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery was founded in the 1950’s and is not only just one monastery, but consists of 5 temples, 4 pavilions and 1 pagoda.

    Tucked away this is not the easiest place to find, but when you do you be instantly blown away by the sight. Lifelike golden Buddha’s, glittering in the sun, stretching as far as the eye can see. As you ascend the 430 steps you will be gazed upon by these looming figures. Quite a surreal experience.  And a great selfie opportunity. Check out each Buddha, each one has a unique and different expression.  Some jovial and some menacing. Choose your favourite!

    The statues become grander and more ornate as you climb and at the top is a wonderful temple where you can pay your respects. A magnificent view of downtown HK is provided too. Perfect gift after a long climb.    This is a very peaceful spot, and you can just while away some time here, wouldn’t even believe you are in a mega city like HK

    A giant towering pagoda also greets you at the top. All one can do is just gawk at it in awe.  This pagoda is actually featured on the 100HKD bill and is an iconic landmark of this city!  You can have the cnahce to climb the 9 floors and see the vista below you.

    You can sit and rest for a while, or snap some pictures.  You can go down again, but this time using a different path. Fewer Buddha’s on this route but watch out for the monkeys. They will appear and try to steal your belongings so be careful!  Or possibly just sit and watch you as you go by, who knows!  Going down you will end up in a little community area, with small houses and local people going aboutt thier business.

    The Tsim Sha Tsui promenade is where the Kowloon Peninsula meets Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. Here you find a fine stretch of waterfront that starts at the Star Ferry Pier and runs east along what is known as the Avenue of Stars and stretching past the newly opened Victoria Dockside.

    Here you will find heritage attractions such as the Star Ferry and historic Clock Tower. Along the Avenue of Stars you will be able to learn a bit about Hong Kong film history while checking out the neat installations, seating benches and art space created outside and within the new K11 Musea.

    There are monuments including the Hong Kong Films Award statue and the famous Bruce Lee statue that are popular for visitors. This is also where you find the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMOA), Space Museum (currently under restorations) and the Culture Centre, where performances are held throughout the year.

    Lastly, you will be rewarded with lovely views of the harbour and the world famous Hong Kong Skyline which is remarkable to see on clear sunny days as well as most nights when the skyline is lit up brightly for all to enjoy. There is a nightly laser light show called the Symphony of lights begins at 8pm. Most impressive are annual fireworks shows over the harbour that can be viewed well from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. A Particularly impressive show is held with the annual Chinese New Year holiday.

    An interesting choice. I think if you're from Hong Kong, it's definitely worth a trip, but if you're visiting on a holiday and you have limited time, not sure it's worth the trip.

    A lot of the value of coming here is to contextualize how far/different Hong Kong is now compared to its roots. There are a couple of nice things to buy here, including some traditional ingredients like seafood and shrimp paste. It is also connected to several hiking paths.

    My suggestion would be to come in the winter.

    BTW the most common way to get here is to go to the Tung Chung MTR station, then take the giant bus that everyone is lining up for.

    Sai Kung has long been a popular place for residents and tourists enjoying the laid back seaside atmosphere, promenade, boat trips and alfresco dining scene. However, it has become something of a street art scene in recent years as well.

    The HKWalls annual art event was held in Sai Kung in May 2021, as part of this event, quite a few of the building walls were brought to life with interesting artworks. You can find many of them around Man Yee Square and the buildings nearby. If you are into street art, walk around this square and take some back alleys to see what unfolds upon the walls you pass by.

    For those looking to do a bit of hiking around Stanley there are a couple of trails nearby including a short route up to see the weathered land formations known locally as Rhino Rock on the Stanley Peninsula south of the village as well as Devil's Paw and the Snoopy Rock in the area known as Chung Hom Kok just to the west of Stanley.

    We recently hiked up to see Devil's Paw and Snoopy Rock combined with brief visits to the old battery and public park at the southern tip of Chung Hom Kok along with the local beach just to the north. To reach these two land formations from Stanley, one only needs to walk the trail through Ma Hang Park starting behind the Murray House. Make your way west to the end of the park. You will find yourself at a roadside roundabout. From here, follow Chung Hom Kok Road west to Cheshire House. Walk until you start to see the large boulders on the left (south) side of the road.

    You will notice a dirt trailhead through rather dense forest. There are red ribbons tied to branches to help you stay on course, which is actually a bit challenging. You'll need to scale and scramble a bit and duck under some lower branches for a short 3-4 minute hike where you reach an opening. From here you can see the Devil's Paw for the first time. From here, you can wind your way along the trail until you find yourself just in front of very interesting and large rock formation. From up close the weather erosion patterns are quite neat to see. Views from here of the coastline and sea are pretty good while sky conditions are favourable.

    From Devil's Paw you can continue to ascend trails further south for another 8-10 minutes until you will reach an exposed outcrop of boulders. This is where you find the Snoopy Rock. It is not clear and obvious but from certain angles, one of the boulders sort of looks like Snoopy. The massive and interesting boulders are really nice and panoramic views here are really nice as well.

    The trail continues further south for a while past a couple more boulder batches before descending downward to Chung Hom Kok Road. From here, if you still have time and energy, you continue south along the main road to see the old coastal defence battery at the southern tip of the peninsula. Or you can begin to make your way back towards Stanley Village. Note, there is a pretty good public beach at Chung Hom Kok that you can make way to as well if you fancy a swim in the sea after your hike as well.

    Guitar fans rejoice — TST has the best guitar shop in the city. Tom Lee music's flagship HQ is about 2 minutes walk from the MTR and has a big selection of Fender/marshall/PRS/Gretsch/Ibanez...no gibson though, for that you'll need parsons music. The sales are frequent and offer deep discounts.
    Good restaurants around here and good shopping generally.

    We were fortunate to visit this temple during the Lunar New Year because there was so much activity to comprehend. Worshipers ask for guidance with their issues and problems and make offerings. Also, many seek vision from the fortune tellers in the area. The music, chanting, incense and lanterns all add to the scene. The grounds are also stunning. This temple deserves a visit any time of the year.

    Mongkok is a bustling district where Hong Kong's youthfulness, energy and creativity collides with old school culture, buildings and markets. It is a thriving district that is packed with crowds of all ages going about their respective lives and leisure interests.

    There are numerous street markets scattered around Mongkok, one that I like is the Nelson Street Wet Market found on the west side of Nathan Road and Langham Place shopping mall and situated between Tong Mi Road (west) and Reclamation Street (east).

    Nelson Street is lined with vegetable, fruit, meat, seafood, sundries dealers. You'll find loads of delicious fresh food as well as peculiar finds including fresh tofu blocks, thousand year eggs, Chinese medicine packs, frogs and other things you will rarely if ever see in western wet (food) markets.

    The market is under large red umbrellas offering shade during midday when the sun is out. Still better to go from mid to late morning (9.30am) when stalls are stocked up and at their best for pictures. The trade-off is that the street can be packed with shoppers at this time of day as well.

    In the end, you can actually traditional wet markets all around Hong Kong. If you are in Mongkok and interested in seeing one, this is a convenient and fun one to visit. Otherwise, it is rather easy to find good options elsewhere around the city as well.
