Guide was very good. The biggest problem was that it took about an hour after meeting before the tour even started. We were put on one bus at the meeting point, then another bus and then another bus to actually go to Lantau Island. The bus that took us to Lantau was the smallest of all the buses! I was nauseous and tired by the time we got there. Lantau is beautiful, cable ride was good. The Guide gave us some short commentary then left us alone for most of the time there. The stilt village was also interesting. Generally good but definitely could have been better with a bit organisation and attention to detail.

ITINERARY

NGONG PING CABLE CAR:
The Ngong Ping cable car connects Tung Chung and Ngong Ping. This 5.7km cable car journey offers visitors spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of South China Sea, Hong Kong International Airport, North Lantau Country Park, and the Giant Buddha.

PO LIN MONASTERY:
Know as the "Buddhist Kingdom in the South", Po Lin Monastery is the most popular Buddhist temple in HK. The world's largest outdoor Buddha at the Po Lin Monastery becomes a site of pilgrimage and is visited by Buddhists from all over the world. The museum under the Buddha is where Sakyamuni's relics are enshrined.

TAI O FISHING VILLAGE (WITH FREE BOAT RIDE):
Tai O, also known as the "Venice of the East", was once the largest inhabited settlement on Lantau Island. The village's stilt houses on the waterfront offer a glimpse into Hong Kong's past and provide a striking contrast with the modern city.

TAI O HERITAGE HOTEL:
Built in 1902 as the Tai O Police Station, it is now a hotel with a colonial design parlor which represents the vintage architectural charm of the 19th century. In 2010, it was graded as a Grade II historic building by the Antiquities Advisory Board.
