Lantau Island - Hong Kong

We took the MTR and reached Tung Chung MTR station. Then we walked to the Ngong Ping 360 cable car station. We bought a ticket that consists of cable car ride (return), "walking with buddha" show and "monkey's tale theater" show. The first show was indeed good as it tells the story of buddha but the second show was a waste of money and time.

There are 2 types of cable car, one is the normal one and one is Crystal Cabin where there is a glass at the bottom and you can look down. Of course the Crystal Cabin comes in a higher price. We took the normal cable car. The ride took around 20 minutes, but it was indeed very steep and scary.

Going down was a lot easier! We didnt eat the vegetarian as we wanted to go Tai-O for seafood. Tai-O will be next post.
