What to Do in Lantau

All Lantau Attractions A to Z

Lantau Island is a unique destination where the old and the new interact. Most parts are decidedly rural and as a result Lantau is a haven for hikers and trekkers, many heading up Lantau Peak (the highest mountain on the island) rising more than 900 metres.

On top of that, Lantau is home to Hong Kong Disneyland, the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride, the famous Giant Buddha (aka the Tian Tan Buddha Statue) and Tai O traditional fishing village.

Tai O Fishing Village

Tai O Village is a must-visit place for those who enjoy observing traditional Chinese ways. It is an old fishing village that has managed to keep a big part of their traditional ways of rural life alive. Most houses are stilt homes by the water and there are many people who still live aboard their boats. The village is made up of small alleys and paths with a village market, several souvenir shops and a few museums (exhibiting very interesting traditional household items, fishing equipment and antique clothing.) There are also good and cheap restaurants in the village. Location: Northwestern coast of Lantau Island, about 45 minutes to an hour-long bus ride from Mui Wo Ferry Pier (aka Silvermine Bay).
