The Big Buddha is sitting on three-storey pedestal. The pedestal is actually an exhibition house of various Buddhist's item.

Around the Big Buddha, there are six status of 'Offerings from Six Devas' which show the devas (gods) offering flower, incense, lamp, ointment, fruit, and music to the Buddha. The six offerings symbolise six perfections of generosity, morality, zeal, meditation, and wisdom. Only when one obtain all the traits, he is able to reach the enlightenment.
Lantau Island is located at the west of Hong Kong. To reach there, we took MTR from Yau Ma Tei to Tung Chung and then transferred to the cable car. There are two of the cable car that the tourists can take for going into Lantau Island, namely standard cabin and crystal cabin. Crystal cabin offers a glass bottom so that you can thrill yourselves along the 30-minutes journey.
We took standard cabin which cost us HKD 155 (~SGD 27) and we had purchased the ticket online. Therefore, we did not need to queue at the counter to collect the tickets. We arrived quite early so we did not see any queue, but when we went out at mid-day, the queue was already snake long.

When we arrived at the terminus, we were greeted by a souvenir shop of Ngongping360. A family of monkey is the mascot of this place.

We were then moved to a huge porch leading to Po Lin Monastery and Tian Tan. We started to climb the stairs. After climbing ups and downs in Zhangjiajie and Guilin, this was nothing.

We did not spend much time in Ngongping360. About mid-day we rushed back to the Tung Chung to visit Citygate Outlet Mall before going on with our next itinerary.
