HongKong: Ngong Ping – Big Buddha

Standard

One of the places we visited is the Ngong Ping 360 in Lantau Island, where you’ll find the Big Buddha, a walk to the Ngong Ping Villa and up to the Big Buddha, will give you a perspective of greener part of HongKong and you feel a lot closer to nature.

It’s our first time to try the cable car. I’m in a way excited and amaze how this type of transportation was made, the length of the cable and how it can sustain the strength of all the weight of the cabins and weight of the passengers is really amazing. A 25 minute ride going to Lantau Island is quite a ride for me, but enjoyed the view while waiting to get to our destination.
