A Day on Lantau Island

Lantau Island (大嶼山) is the largest island on Hong Kong, which is adjacent to the Hong Kong International Airport. It is also the home to Tian Tian Buddha and Tai O, both popular tourist attractions.

My friends and I left campus around 8:30 am and arrived at Prince Edward Station to meet up with my mom and a few of her friends before heading to Lantau Island. We took the red line on the MTR from Prince Edward to Lai King Station, then we transferred to the yellow line and got off at Tung Chung. There are two ways you can get up to Ngong Ping Village where the Buddha is located: the bus or the cable cars. We decided to get a one way trip on the standard cable car which was $130.00 HKD. (I would’ve preferred to take the Crystal Cabin, which has a clear glass bottom, but my mother is acrophobic.)
