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 😀
Finally! Each cable car seats around 6 people. You pay extra if you want to have it private, or glass bottom (Crystal Cabin). We’re fine with the regular cabin.
Here we go!
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.
There is the Big Buddha!
We have arrived!
The statue does not seem to like jowa at all
Am not a photographer but I wish I also have a shot like this lol
I am no stranger to MRT Shaw Station so this is easy peasy for me
Hello Big Buddha
Because I got tired of climbing all those steps
I’m looking at Po Lin Monastery from Big Buddha
Went down from Big Buddha to go to Po Lin Monastery
