This is an amazing mountain holding the giant Big Budda that has 244 steps to the top where smaller statues are seen. Shopping all around for souvenirs and an education of the Monks life and culture.

We travelled with our family here on a tour- the Buddha was spectacular and surroundings definitely worth a visit. Lunch at the buddhist temple was delicious vegetarian. Worth a visit

We opted to take the cable car up to the village which had a massive queue but the ride made the wait totally worth it. You get a superb view of the Buddha on the ride up. The village itself is just a little tourist...More

If you are not a shopping fan, this is a place you should visit if you are in Hong Kong, even though the entrance looks like an amusement park (lots of restaurants, souvenirs shops and even 3D shows), the monastery is wonderfull.

I would allow the whole day,, catch the gondola up as it gives fabulous views. Depending on humidity and fitness the climb up to the Buddha can be tiring but the views are well worth it. Before going to the monastery there... More
