Tour Details

Leave the bustle of Hong Kong behind you as you embark on a ferry to Lantau Island. This full day tour takes you to Hong Kong's largest outlying island for views of lush vegetation, mountainous landscapes, and beautiful beaches. But this island isn't just about its geography; Lantau Island boasts an array of unique experiences.

Aboard a motor coach, traverse the beautiful landscapes of Lantau Island. Travel to Lantau Island's longest beach, Cheung Sha, before visiting the quaint fishing village of Tai O. Criss-crossing canals run through this peaceful fishing harbor where homes balance on stilts over the water, giving the village the nickname, "The Venice of the Orient." Your motor coach ride continues up narrow streets on a steep mountainside towards Po Lin Monastery and its vegetarian restaurant, where you will enjoy a vegetarian lunch on your tour of Lantau Island. The Po Lin Monastery also features the star attraction of Lantau Island, the bronze Tian Tan Buddha (or "Giant Buddha") statue. The towering Tian Tan Buddha stands over ten stories high and was once the world's largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha statue. It takes an astounding 268 steps to climb up to the base of the Giant Buddha.

Your Lantau Island tour concludes with a ride on Ngong Ping 360, a 6 km cable car ride high above the mountainside offering great views of the mountain landscape, South China Sea, and Hong Kong International Airport in the distance. Take a full day tour to Lantau Island and visit the island's tranquil, natural environment.

Please Note: The Ngong Ping 360 cable car will be closed for scheduled maintenance on July 5th. On this date, the journey from Ngong Ping to Tung Chung will be by coach.
