Enjoy Hong Kong's green lung on a private walking tour
Visiting Lantau is a step back in time to Hong Kong over 50 years ago. This introduction to Lantau for one or two people with a private guide is a big step away from the city and into the green lungs of the country. During a full day visit you will experience unspoilt vistas and charming fishing villages steeped in tradition - not to be missed on your trip to Hong Kong.
Itinerary subject to change, method of transport is by public transport:
- Meet at your hotel for transfer to Tung Chung on Lantau Island.
- Visit Ngong Ping village and the "precious lotus" Po Lin Monastery
- Walk the steps to the largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha Statue in East Asia.
- Trek through the sub-tropical forest for the Wisdom Path, perhaps encounter a cow or two?
- Make our way to Tai O to meander the streets of this once thriving fishing village, seeing some of the indigenous Tanka people still at work.
- Enjoy some of the fresh seafood on offer or eat at the beautifully restored Heritage Hotel, a former colonial police station.
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: Your hotel or mutually agreed location
End location: Your hotel or mutually agreed location
Duration: 7 hours
We will be taking public transport (MTR, ferry and bus) on the tour and I would therefore suggest that you purchase Octopus cards for your stay in Hong Kong. They cost $150 HKD each ($50 deposit, $100 credit) but as they are the easiest way to get around, I think they are invaluable. They are available from any MTR station and I can help you with this should you need. You can also use them in most shops and outlets as a form of payment as well.
