Create an itinerary including Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha)
Both a pilgrimage site and a popular tourist attraction, Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) ranks among the city's top must-sees. The massive 34 m (111 ft) bronze statue, formally known as Tian Tan Buddha, was erected in 1993, bringing the Po Lin Monastery to the world's attention. The Buddha sits at the top of 268 steps, facing north. Climb to the top for a closer look at the statue, and to savor the panoramic vista of mountains and sea below. Remember that this is an important Buddhist site, so be respectful of those here to see Buddha as more than a tourist attraction. After your visit, explore the Po Lin Monastery just opposite.

  • One of my favorites.. I'm not entirely spiritual but felt at peace being here.. Lots of souvenirs to buy on the way up and excellent photo ops throughout the adventure. The bonus to this site was the cable car you need to take up to the final destination. As an option you may navigate the way up on foot but is via a pathway that requires an expert to accompany and I would imagine it would take several hours, the main site is definitely a must see.
  • + A must see spot for HKG visitors! 👍🏻👍🏻
