Full day excursion to Lantau Island
Each year thousands of visitors travel to Lantau Island to see the Giant Buddha.
My full day Lantau excursion is designed to show you what they will miss.
Lantau is also a paradise for photographers. I know all the shots and how to get there to beat the crowds!
You can expect to see a side of Hong Kong you never imagined existed: a magnificent ferry ride, beautiful beaches, pristine forests, a genuine Tanka fishing village, perhaps a dolphin or two, one of the most scenic temples in Hong Kong and of course, the Magic Tian Tan Buddha and the wonderful Po Lin Monastery.
Our grand finale will be the exhilarating (I am not exaggerating here) ride down to Tung Chung on the Nong renowned Ping 360 glass bottom aerial tramway!
Along they way we will stop for an authentic local cha chaan teng lunch.
The outing serves as a perfect backdrop for me to share plenty of local history and culture: Tanka fisherfolk, rural clan life, pirates, opium smugglers, Chinese folk religion and the Greater Pearl River Estuary.
This is a private walking tour which means the itinerary will be adjusted to meet your personal expectations.
Route plan includes First Ferry to Mui Wo, bus to Tai O, walk and boat ride through Tai O, bus or taxi to Nong Ping and Giant Buddha, aerial tramway to Tung Chung returning to Central Hong Kong by MTR.

Bill is a wonderful guide; calm, intelligent, very knowledgable, and easy going. He took great photos using our iPhone and knows all the best spots and angles for truly artistic images with the best lighting for that moment of the day, plus he taught us how to maximize the use of our phone's camera . He is very generous and provided us with detailed instructions for visiting other sites on our own the next day. All in all, we had a great experience. We'd give him 6 stars out of 5.
