We went hiking to the Lantau Peak, and visited the Big Buddha on the way. We were surprised that all the hiking trails and campings are equipped for people's comfort. Especially, we liked the Tai O campsite.

We took the cable car and rode it all the way to the area where big Buddha was. There is a road to take a cab I believe or a trail to walk/run it
