I am not a small person so I just took it nice and easy. Stop on the seats provided and look at the views, beautiful. Continue on through the fishing village to Haoshang Bridge, the prettiest bridge I have ever seen.

This is the only way to get to the foot of the Giant Buddha. However, on the way you will pass many nice statues. The way is safe, but can be a little slippery when it is wet. You would have to be doing something...More
