Whitney Liao, the best travel agent at China Highlights, arranged a tour for my party of 6 to tour Lantau Island after we arrived to Hong Kong on our cruise. Our tour guide, Eric, met us after we disembarked from our cruise ship Ovation of the Seas. Whitney arranged for us to take the glass bottom cable car to Ngong Ping Plateau. It's a beautiful ride to to the island that gives you the opportunity to see Hong Kong and visualize the enormity of the Giant Buddha.
The Giant Buddha is breathtaking. The adrenaline was pumping full force as I climbed the steps with ease. It's very peaceful at the top. When we descended, we visited the beautiful Po Lin Monastery and Temple.
There are a number of restaurants and souvenir shops at the entrance of the island. I only wished I had more time there. If you book a private tour, spend a little extra to have more time on the island. It's money well spent.
