Tour A   Lantau Island

On Lantau, you can go from the beaches to the Big Buddha to a bar-restaurant in Discovery Bay all in the same day. For those who love getting out and being active, Lantau is the paradise you’ve been looking for, but it has loads to offer history buffs and culture vultures, too. Whether you want to hike to a sunset viewpoint or take a glass-bottomed gondola to the tallest seated Buddha in Hong Kong before going back down to a restaurant by the sea, Lantau has something for you. 

Po Lin Monastery.jpg

Po Lin Monastery is a Buddhist monastery.  The monastery was founded in 1906 by three monks visiting from Jiangsu Province on the Chinese mainland and was initially known simply as "The Big Hut" (大茅蓬 Tai Mao Pung). It was renamed to its present name in 1924. The main temple houses three bronze statues of the Buddha – representing his past, present and future lives – as well as many Buddhist scriptures. The monastery boasts many prominent architectural structures, such as the Main Shrine Hall of Buddha, the Hall of Bodhisattva Skanda.

Tian Tan Buddha.jpg

Tian Tan Buddha, a giant Buddha statue completed in 1993, is an extension of the monastery. The Big Buddha is a large bronze statue of Buddha, completed in 1993, and located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. The statue is sited near Po Lin Monastery and symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and faith. It is a major centre of Buddhism in Hong Kong, and is also a tourist attraction

Tai O Fishing Village.jpg

With roots tracing all the way back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), Tai O Fishing Village oozes history and heritage. Home to the Tanka people, a community of fishermen who traditionally built their homes on stilts above tidal flats, the village is a must-visit for anyone heading to Lantau. Boats navigate the channel between houses, stirring up the smell of the sea and offering great photo ops. But Tai O has so much more to offer than snaps for your Instagram feed. Some entrepreneurial locals have turned their stilted homes into restaurants and cafes including Solo, which serves a range of teas, speciality coffee and homemade cakes.

Wong Yi  Chau Youth Camp 1.jpg

Wong Yi  Chau Youth Camp  In 1960s. The Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong actively searched for land to build another new camp to meet the needs of the community, and finally obtained the government's permission to expand the association's second camp on a small island outside Sai Kung (Wong Yi Chau) with an area of about 10 acres. In June 1965, the camp site was supported by the Y’s Men’s Club of Hong Kong by donating 100,000 Hong Kong dollars (US$12,820) to fund the construction, and thus the camp was named "Y’s Men YMCA Wong Yi Chau Youth Camp".

In 1982, when the Y’s Men’s Club of Hong Kong celebrated its 50th anniversary, the Club again generously donated HK$250,000 (US$32050) to cover half of the construction cost of a two-storey integrated activity centre near the pier and recreation rooms on the left and right sides, which was presided over by the Hon.D. Akers-Jones, C.M.G. J.P., ,the Secretary for City & New Territories Administration on April 23, 1983. 

In addition, in 1989, the Government approved the Chinese YMCA to build additional facilities in the north of the island, and was again sponsored by the Y’s Men’s Club of Hong Kong, the Rotary Club of Hong Kong North and the Sir David Trench Fund Committee to build facilities such as the roundabout jogging track physical training facility, camping area, rope net array and archery range. In the 1990s, a number of development projects were carried out on the camp, including an amphitheatre, water sports area and pier. In addition to outdoor activities such as different ball games, camping areas and campfires, the camp also provides a variety of water activities, such as dragon boating, cockpitless canoeing, stand-up boarding, floating rafting, etc.

Tour C   The Peak & Hertiage

Victoria Peak is a hill on the western half of Hong Kong Island. It is also known as Mount Austin, and locally as The Peak only generally. With an elevation of 552 metres (1,811 ft), it is the tallest hill on Hong Kong Island, and the 29th tallest in the territory of Hong Kong. It is a major tourist attraction offering views of Central, Victoria Harbour, Lamma Island and the surrounding islands.

The summit of Victoria Peak is occupied by a radio telecommunications facility and is closed to the public. The surrounding area of public parks, tourist facilities and high-value residential land is the area that is normally meant by the name The Peak. The Peak also refers to Victoria Peak itself and its nearby areas, including Victoria Gap, Mount Kellett and Mount Gough. Sometimes Bowen Hill may also be included.

Victoria Peak is only one of the most expensive residential areas in Hong Kong, but not the most expensive compared to Deep Water Bay and Jardine's Lookout.
