One highly memorable activity in Hong Kong was visiting the Big Buddha monument in Lantau Island. Soaring up high in a relaxing 30 minute ride on an exciting glass bottom cable cart, with unbeatable views, certainly made for a magnificent way to start off our adventure. Upon reaching the top of the mountain we could spot the giant statue, talk about a grand first impression! The atmosphere of shops, beautiful gardens and even a monestary surrounding the Buddha made for a lovely time. Hiking up the many steps to the top of the statue was a bit of a cardio workout, yet well worth, as we found even more impressive views of distant islands surrounding the area. It was also a lot fun for everyone to explore the monastery while there so as to get a glimpse of life for a buddhist monk. Of course while walking out, our kids got a fun stuffed animal representative of the area that they carried throughout the remainder of our visit! Overall this was a very successful activity for the whole family and one I wouldn’t mind repeating with our family one day.
