Hong Kong: Big Buddha, Toufu Fa, Lantau Island

Hong Kong: Big Buddha, Toufu Fa, Lantau Island – One of the cool place to visit in Hong Kong is Lantau Island where the Big Buddha statue is. It’s not only just visiting the statue, you can get some nice moment off from the vibrant busy city life of Hong Kong.

You can take the MTR to Tung Chung Station, then do some shopping at Citygate Outlet, then you can pick to use the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car or go up by bus. It was a super long queue at the cable car station and we bought a package of going there by bus and coming back by cable car. It’s cheaper and faster too.

We did some shopping at Citygate, there’s many brands at there, selling at a discounted price. Then we took the bus to go see the Big Buddha statue. It took us about 20 minutes ride to there. It was nice to look at the scenery around.

Big Buddha is situated on top of a hill, it’s huge and very beautiful. One must not miss is the 山水豆腐花 Toufu Fa, the beancurd toufu far is so smooth and mouth-watering. It’s a bit different with ours as it has ginger in it.

After touring around Po Lin Monastery (official name), we went back down through the cable car. Aduhainya, we queued 40 minutes for the cable car!

Fun, but won’t visit the Buddha again, maybe next time can go there for hiking!
