It was our last day in Hong Kong so we woke up really early in the morning to catch a bus to head to the airport which is in Lantau Island that’s where Disneyland is but NOOOO we didn’t go there. 🙁
So we kept our luggage at the airport and paid the rent for storing it while we go and explore the island. We took a train to where the Ngong Ping Cable Car is located but unluckily it was not operational on that day and we missed all the buses that goes up to Hong Kong Buddha and we didn’t have enough time. So we took a taxi which was bloody expensive. Fortunately, on our way back to the train we managed to take a bus which was so much cheaper.
When we arrived to the top (btw, it’s quite far) we passed by the Ngong Ping Village and walked towards the Po Lin Monastery and the Hong Kong Buddha was located there. We walked all the way up to the big Buddha which was EXHAUSTING but the view was breath-taking. We later visited the monastery and headed back to the airport to catch our flight.
It was indeed a short and quick trip and maybe some day we will get to explore more of the island next time.
