Journey to the Lantau Buddha
Quite a long time ago, but not too long back, Lantau island was only accesible by boat. Then came the new airport, the Tsing Ma Bridge, Disneyland and what was once an isolated climb for Buddhists has become a family day out. This cable car runs from Tsung Chung, very close to the MTR terminal station. From here the ride takes passengers across the Tsung Chung Bay , and up to the mountain village of Ngong Ping and the Tian Tan Buddha statue. Theres a multi media presentation "Walking With Buddha", tea shops and all the tourist parafinalia anyone could wish for. As a full family day it is fantastic, and the views from the cable car are spectacular.
