Took about 2 hours to get here by metro

and the cable car from Repulse Bay. Definitely worth the trek. We stood in line for quite a while. We took a crystal cable car in Lantau Island up to visit Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. You'd think only local businesses would be there to keep the quaint village running, but much to my amazement, there was a Starbucks, a 7/11 and a Subway.

I guess all of Hong Kong is exposed to consumerism. It almost feels like many Buddhists make a pilgrimage here. Being surrounded by such vibes, zen people of many different nationalities and hearing monks peacefully chant all while inhaling the peaceful scent of incense was a sensational experience.

This is one of thousand awesome place to visit in hong kong

This is one of a thousand awesome places to visit in Hong Kong. The Tian Tan Buddha is located in Lantau Island. To complete your experience, reach it via 360 Ngong Ping Cable Car (if you have more budget, use the crystal glass cabin). You will use the cable car to reach the Buddha on the top of the hill. After you arrive, you must walk through the market. To reach the Big Buddha, you need to climb stairs. Well, it's no ordinary stairs because maybe it's about 500 or maybe more than 500!!! But there's a myth that said if you can reach the top of it and pray in front of the Buddha, your wish or dream will come true. The scenery around is really beautiful. Well, your pain isn't done yet. Believe me, climbing down the stairs is more difficult than climbing up the stairs. Lol

Giant buddha in lantau

Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong. It is situated near the village of Ngong Ping, the Po Lin Monastery, which houses a huge bronze Buddha, the world's largest one that can be found sitting outdoors. In the monastery, you can eat at vegetarian restaurants, visit the temple and the surrounding buildings, etc. The island, the monastery and nature are a 20 minute boat ride away from the hustle and bustles and numerous buildings in the city of Hong Kong.
