Discover a world of peace, tranquility and serenity as you begin your journey and gaze upon the beautiful land and seascape underneath your feet while inside the glass bottom Crystal Cabin. View the island of Lantau from a 25-minute Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride from Tung Chung. Lantau Island is the biggest island in Hong Kong and it houses a lot of breath-taking sceneries both from the sea, the land, and the mountain.

Begin your voyage in Lantau Island with a tranquil walk at the Ngong Ping Piazza with a beautiful welcoming ornamental archway, the Pai Lau. Walk along the Bodhi Path that connects the Pai Lau to the Di Tan or the Earth Temple. Feast your eyes on the beautiful Chinese Landscaped Garden that harmonizes with the Po Lin Monastery where the Big Buddha, made of bronze, resides. A short walk from the Po Lin Monastery will take you to the Wisdom Path. Be fascinated as you feast your eyes on the gorgeous and relaxing view of the 38 wooden steles containing the verses of the Heart Sutra that faces the wonderful South China Sea.

Lantau Island is an ideal location for soul-searching pilgrims enticed with stunning and eye-catching sceneries that not just enriches the soul but also the eye. Take on the challenge and climb the 268 step staircase and see the Big Buddha closer than you can imagine. You will feel like you are between sky and Earth. Be blessed and soul-rejuvenated after setting your eyes on the 34 meter bronze Big Buddha that made the Po Lin Monastery famous.

Aside from the lush greeneries, the soul-soothing venues and the picturesque seascape there are also a lot of shops in Ngong Ping Village. Be thrilled as you try their specialties and authentic Chinese cuisine. Let yourself be satisfied with the food, the view and the voyage – your very own pilgrimage in Lantau Island.
