How To Get There?
From airport, take the MTR to Tung Chung station then take Exit B or from airport, go to Exit B and take the E22 Bus to Tung Chung. From there, you have 2 options.

  • Cable Cars — it was too expensive for us and I hate cable cars so it’s never in our option. You can book for discounted price in
  • Bus E22 — 45 minutes travel time and fare is 17.20HKD on weekdays

Once you arrive by bus or by cable car, you have to walk towards the stairs to Big Buddha for like 5-10 minutes. There are signs everywhere so just follow them.

On your way to the Big Buddha, you’ll see statues of some generals. There will be a lot of cute stray dogs and buffaloes. It is sacred for them so please don’t feed those animals.
