Attraction

Big Buddha

Making himself comfortable at the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island, this is the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha.

Symbolising the relationship between man and nature, people and religion, it is well worth climbing the 268 steps to reach this 34 metre-high cross-legged giant. Reached by boat or cable car, the trip to the island is just as breathtaking with gorgeous views of high peaks and sparkling waters.
