Day trip from Hong Kong's bustling center to enjoy Ngong Ping 360 cable car, the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and the stilt fishing village of Tai O - complete with local snacks!
If your impression of Hong Kong is towering skyscrapers, hurrying commuters and narrow city streets, prepare to be proved wrong! On this 4 hour tour of Lantau Island, you'll discover Hong Kong's expansive nature, traditional culture and a fishing village hidden in the far reaches of the island. Begin aboard the iconic Ngong Ping 360 cable car for glorious views across Lantau's verdant terrain. At the top, pay a visit to the famous 34 meters Tian Tan Buddha a.k.a 'the Big Buddha' and to tranquil Po Lin Monastery. Making your way down towards the sea and the traditional fishing village of Tai O, hop aboard a boat excursion to understand why the village is sometimes known as the 'Venice of Hong Kong' due to the waterways between the stilt houses and power out to sea in hope of glimpsing one of Tai O's special pink dolphins! Taste some local snacks such as doughnuts, fish balls and tofu pudding, and visit a old-style stilt house, before boarding a ferry back to Tung Chung.
Amazing trip I have. The tour guide is friendly and the snake is delicious. thanks Klook.
Insightful tour of Tai O and the package is worth it just to skip the Ngong Ping queue alone.
The tour started off with a walk to the monastery. We did not walk up to the Big Buddha which is better for photography from afar. If you want to walk up the steps to reach The Big Buddha or walk around the Ngong Ping village, you should do it before the start of the tour. The tour at the fishing village is insightful. We had two local snacks included in the tour and enjoyed them. It is a pity that we did not see any dolphin.
the tour we joined was mostly made by the locals, therefore the tour guide spoke Cantonese most of time. It's kinda hard to understand for foreigners. But we still had great time during this short trip!
The tour was very enriching, it brought us to the real villages where we got to soak into the culture. Good variety of snacks for us to taste too.
