Lantau Island Highlights - HQA6

Delight in a discovery-filled jaunt to Lantau Island, as you spend five hours exploring the fish market of Tai O village, entering the sacred Po Lin monastery and standing before the magnificent Tian Tian Buddha. The largest of Hong Kong's islands, Lantau is known for its rich history, mountainous interior and rugged beaches. You'll begin in the quaint fishing village of Tai O, nicknamed the "Eastern Venice," where it's easy to reminisce about Hong Kong's pre-colonial days. A 30-minute guided stroll leads you past the stilt homes of the Tanka fishing people — the interconnected design of the houses, standing tall above tidal flats, inspires a close-knit village community. Then get lost in the briny aroma of Market Street, where a bounty of salted-fish, dried seafood, shrimp and souvenirs are sold in outdoor stalls. You'll then make your way to the remote hilltop location of Po Lin, one of Hong Kong's most exalted worship spaces. The monastery was founded in 1906 by a trio of monks — and today the prayer halls, shrines, gardens and scripture library remain an important pilgrimage site for devoted Buddhists. Its eye-catching centerpiece, a 111-foot-tall bronze "Big Buddha" statue, took 12 years to construct and now faces north to keep watch over and instill peace among the Chinese people.

Highlights:
• Lantau: Enjoy a guided sojourn to Hong Kong's largest island, taking in its Chinese history, natural beauty and authentic culture.
• Tai O: Walk around this fishing village's stilt homes and breathe in the briny essence of its bustling seafood market.
• Po Lin: Step inside one of Hong Kong's most treasured monasteries, as the giant "Big Buddha" statue leaves you breathless.
