The other day I visited the Big Buddha, just outside the main city of Hong Kong.
Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy, so I couldn’t see much…but, this is one of the must-visit tourist attractions in Hong Kong, so no doubt if you ask your hotel concierge about it, they’ll know exactly what they are talking about.
To get to the Big Buddha, you can either take the sky tram (which is currently under renovation), or, the cheaper option of the #23 bus. The #23 bus goes from the Tung Chung subway station directly to where the Buddha is located.
But…on your return trip…there’s a quick tip.
Don’t take the #23 bus back to Tung Chung. If you do, you’ll notice an hour or more wait, as tourists try to make their way back to the city. Take the #2 bus to Mui Wo Ferry, and then either the high-speed or standard-speed ferries back to the Central Pier, in the heart of Hong Kong.
My hotel concierge warned me of this, and I wanted to pass along the advice. With this being a major tourist spot in Hong Kong, I’m sure some of you are bound to benefit from this.
