It was Maldives’ Independence day when I went out of the country to go to Hong Kong. In my first day in Hong kong, I went to Ngong Ping. It is located in the western part of the Lantau island. One way to get there is through a cable car, which is one of its famous rides. And with that, “famous” usually coincide with long cues. So to keep yourself from those, you have to book online. I opted the crystal cabin round-trip ride and it costs 30 US dollars to book.
It was my first time riding a cable car. It was so high and the floor is made up of glass so you can see what’s beneath you. The 20-min ride will bring you to Ngong Ping village where you can see the giant Buddha statue sitting on a mountain top.
There are cows here.
I took the stairway to the giant Tian Tan Buddha. It took me longer than I thought to reach the top. Maybe because I got sick days before my trip to HK and I kinda skipped my weekly exercise.
After the descend, I proceed to the Po lin Monastery. It is a Buddhist temple with amazing Chinese architecture. It is my first time to see such amazing feats in actual.
I also took a long walk to the place they call the Wisdom path.
I went back to the Ngong Ping Piazza and again saw a cow roaming around…He also left some…droppings for tourists to step to. A souvenir maybe?
Time to go home.
If you have plans on going to Hong Kong, Don’t miss this. It’s a must-do. ‘Til next time 🙂
