Hong Kong 2015: Ngong Ping

image

On our third day we went to Ngong Ping where the Big Buddha is. Rode the MTR to Tung Chung station and had a quick brunch in Starbucks outside Citygate Outlet mall. This particular branch had waaaaay too many selections for food. They even have pasta (spaghetti bolognese, ravioli, etc). Too bad I wasn’t able to take a photo of their counter where the food and pastries are displayed.

Then we headed to queue in Ngong Ping 360, that’s what they call the cable car going to Ngong Ping. It was about 11am and the queue was toooooooo long. I was relieved when I found out Klook voucher holders had a different express line which was a lot shorter! Thanks Klook!! I suddenly remembered I bought tickets to 4 attractions using Klook app! You see, this is 5 months ago so forgive me πŸ˜€

I always refer to Hong Kong as a crazy mixture of mountains, skyscrapers and bodies of water.

Believe it or not there is a walkway underneath the cable car trail and we saw a person or two walking the heck of it. Like, seriously.
