Hongkong Day 1: Ngong Ping Cable Car / Village at Lantau Island

Day 1: December 21, 2009 Itinerary
Ngong Ping Cable / Lantau Island
Mongkok Midnight Market

Arrived before lunch at Hongkong Airport and with our luggage still in tow we went straight to Ngong Ping Cable Car ride which is just few kms. away from the airport to save our time. We left our luggage at an electronic locker that we rented at Tung Chung terminal.

Ngong Ping Cable Car has several gondola lift that can accommodate up to 8 pax and will travel around 6 kms. from Tung Chung station up until Ngong Ping at Lantau Island where the Po Lin Monastery and Tian Tan Buddha are both located.

You can choose between  Ngong Ping 360 Standard Cabin or the Crystal Cabin that has a glass bottom floor. We bought the standard cabin ride tickets that took us around 30 mins. from Tung Chung Terminal to Ngong Ping Village at Lantau Island.
