Clean and scenic. Climb up the stairs to visit the big buddha statue and admire the sunset in the evening. There were real cattles roaming around! Further 10mins down, you can walk and explore the wisdom path!

The hike up the hundreds of steps is invigorating (devastating for some). The view up close of the statue and the surrounding landscape is worth it. Do not pass up the visit to the Monastery. I nearly did so and the Monastery was the most...More

The big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery are just next to each other. It is worth a 3 hrs visit. However, forget about the cable car. It is too expensive. Better to travel by public bus from Tung Chung MTR station or Mui Wu Ferry...More

The Big Buddha was a little hard to get to as the cable car was not operating when I was there (maintenance). Instead, I took a bus there. The experience was well worth the trip. Took lots of great photos.

Book on line (no need to print) as this will give you a better price and no queuing. Only attempt if you can climb the 260 + steps, but it is so worth it. You can see Buddha from the cable car & great photos

The site opens at 10am. I'm not aware of gaining access to any of the facilities prior to that time. Be mindful that your key decision point is in Tung Chung. Your bus will take you that far. Then your choice is the... More

We saw many people with strollers on the cable car. The kind that fold up. It's a lot of walking so I think if you have a little one you should bring it.
