See Lantau and the Big Buddha in comforts of a luxury van
Lantau Island is situated on the outskirts of Hong Kong promoting nature and tranquillity. With the Big Buddha being one of the most desired attractions here, it is often being missed due to its location and accessibility.
The NongPing360 cable car is the utmost direct transport up the mountain but often come with an hour wait in lining up before being loaded and vice versus. Not only time consuming but also missing out on some of the other amazing locations offered on Lantau, which the majority of its locations are situated within the restricted roads of Lantau where only limited vehicles are allowed to drive into the area.
Look no further in seeing what Lantau has to offer in full and only within half a day so you can spend more of your valuable time enjoying Hong Kong.
P. S. The NongPing360 cable car was under a 6-month rope replacement maintenance program and resume service from June/July 2017.
We will begin from your hotel lobby and head straight to Lantau.
The drive from the city will be around 45 minutes and will first explore Pui O which is a historic old seaside village right in the middle of South Lantau island. We will be able to see historic monuments that were built since the late 19th century including ancestral halls and as well as the Tin Has temple that was built in 1798.
Then, we will head towards Tai O fishing village in seeing "the Venice of Hong Kong" experiencing fisherman style living with its stilt houses right by the water, Kwan Tai temple built since 1741, the traditional shrimp paste and salted fish storefronts and of course beautiful water scenery that words cannot describe, only seeing is believing.
We head up to Nong Ping to visit the giant Buddha, the Po Lin Monastery, Path of Wisdom and snacks at the temple and a stroll down Nong Ping village.
This drive will be a truly amazing half day out seeing the natural sceneries of the untouched parts of Hong Kong.

Very knowledgeable and interesting. Very convenient. He took us to Tao O, a small fishing village built on stilts—fascinating. He also took us to a local watering hole: The Three Lanterns. He introduced us to native sweets that he had enjoyed as a child. Overall, excellent tour!
