Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Day trip to Lantau Island

Nov 4, 2018 comment(s)

For this full day (it’s Sunday, Edouard doesn’t work!), we took a cable car which brought us up to a hill in Lantau Island. Unfortunately, the weather was foggy, so the view was not as good as expected.

It’s where the 34 meters Big Buddha in bronze is. A beautiful monastery is next to it, with a room with 10,000 gold buddhas!

We then went to the west of the island in bus, in the small fishing village called Tai O. It is touristic but still very nice. We did a boat tour, we admired the small stilt houses and we bought dried fish (the specialty).. or not!

A very nice day exploring Hong Kong surroundings, far away from the city.
