A Budget Friendly Visit to Hong Kong? Yes, It IS Possible!
Exploring Lantau Island.
Lantau Island is an amazing place where you can stay up to 5 hours. What can you do here? Climb the stairs to see the Buddha closer (HK$25) and take some photos of it. This is one of the 5 largest Buddha statues in China called Tian Tan Buddha which is impressively 34 m tall, weights 250 tons and it’s made of bronze.
The monastery is extremely beautiful and according to what we have read there, it was constructed in 1924 by 3 Buddhists. There are beautiful lanterns hanging out from the ceiling, fruits on the plates and various Buddha statues inside the temple. If you feel like spending a peaceful and relaxing day away from the busy Hong Kong center, add Lantau Island to you must-see list and you will not regret it.
