Tian Tan Buddha
tips & insights

Getting there

To reach the Tian Tan Buddha from Hong Kong, take the metro to the Tung Chung station. Nearby is the terminal for a new 6 kilometer (4 mile) long cable car system, which transports you to Po Lin.


Once you are on the Po Lin monastery grounds, you climb 268 steps to reach the base of the statue (top of stairway can be seen in photo).


If you do not bring something to eat, the monks serve a vegetarian lunch to tourists in a large dining hall. The cost is modest, but so is the food quality.
