We were seated front row for our trip to Ngong Ping. It was a smooth ride and had a great view of the mountains, ocean plus small infrastructures surrounding the island. Round trip tickets costs HKD33.00 and takes around 30-40 minutes (one way).
Spotted a few stores/booth selling souvenirs, etc.
At the gate/entrance to Tian Tian Buddha. No need to pay 'coz entrance is free of charge. ;)
You need to climb the stairs with a total of 268 steps to get a closer look of Tian Tian Buddha.
The stairs reminded me of our trip to Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We're just lucky that the weather was ok, cold.. so it made it easier for us to get to the top without sweating that much. Lol. Just a little out of breath for sure.
At the top baby! :) Anyway, I think I may be the only person wearing a sleeveless top plus leggings for a 15C weather. I wasn't really prepared in terms of clothing for this trip. Haha. Check out this post from Tokyo where I wore shorts inside the temple and temperature that time was below 5C. Crazy!
Another proof that we made it to the top! Lol. Paolo posing with the 112 ft. tall big buddha. :)
The Po Lin Monastery is closed and under renovation.
Another tourist destination ticked off my travel bucket list with my favorite travel buddy in the world, Paolo.
