You'll enjoy this attraction even before arriving to the place. Take the cable car (arrive early to avoid long lines), beautiful lake scenery and all of the sudden the image of Buddha at the top of the hill. Go with enough time to stroll around the villa and why not hiking your way down!

OK I know this review is for the Big Buddha, but there are 10,249 reviews of the place. So all i want to say is that, there is a Chopstick gallery in the area of the shops, even if you arent good with chopticks or want it as a souvenir, just go and have a look, if you do decide... More

Well worth the trip to Lantau. Take the MTR to Tung Chung and then city bus 23 to the Big Buddha (cable car is closed Jan-June 2017). The Big Buddha and Great Hall and beautiful. Good place for souvenirs too that support the Monastery. Do not go if it is real foggy.

The Big Buddha is well worth a visit but beware that there really are a lot of steps to climb if you want to see it up close. However, it's well worth climbing them not just to see the Buddha but also for the great view from the top.

Enjoyable half day trip to visit the Buda. We took the cable car, I would advise to go early because as the day go by you'll have long queues. The trip by cable car has beautiful views of the mountains. The walk to the Big Buda it's also very nice

Was a truly amazing experience. Thousands of people sharing our adventure but that's to be expected. The nearly 300 stairs aren't as daunting or hard to negotiate as I thought. Considering how many people are walking up and down, there wasn't much pushing and barging past. The Buddha is majestic to behold whether you go up the stairs or not.... More

What a shame ! Only the big Buddha and the view are nice. Even if you just go there to see the big Buddha and the view, you will fall into a fake place full of shops. Well, all this big Buddha is cheap and fake.
