Nature-Forest Nature-Mountain Transport-Cable car

This 25 minute cable car ride gives a bird's eye view of Lantau Island - and takes riders from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping - perfect for seeing the Big Buddha / Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. There are 2 cabin types to choose from: a standard cabin and a crystal cabin - the crystal cabins (more expensive) having a glass bottom to give riders a startling view below. It's possible to book a return ticket with a standard cabin one way, and a crystal cabin the other. At 5.7km in length, this is the longest such cable ride on the continent of Asia. Looking down from the cabin, there are a few notable sights. Don't miss Tung Chung Bay - where locals collect clams and fish. Shun Tau wetlands has been designated an area of Special Scientific Interest and is a natural habitat for local wildlife. You'll "fly past" Hong King International Airport, and get a great view of the 50km long Hong Kong - Zhuhai - Macau bridge - itself an impressive feat of engineering - and currently under construction. The North Country Park is Hong Kong's largest national country park, and covers 22 square km - look out for hikers below. You'll also get a preview of the Tian Tan Buddha, a 34 metre, 250 ton statue, and the world's 2nd largest Buddha. Photo Credits: Jeanne Rose Gomez, unsplash.com
