Unending adventures in electrifying Hong Kong

Lantau Island

Lantau ("Ragged Head") Island offers some of Hong Kong's most dramatic surprises, including pristine beaches, dense forests, stunning hikes and the world's largest sitting statue of the Buddha.

The Po Lin Monastery and its remarkable Buddha is Lantau's most popular attraction. Visitors walk up 268 flights of steps to visit this magnificent bronze sculpture.

Victoria Peak

At 1,038 feet (322 meters), the Victoria Peak is Hong Kong Island's tallest hill. Majestic skyscrapers and high-rise residential blocks encircle the harbour with the hills of Kowloon in the distance. Whether by day or night, Victoria Peak provides a breathtaking view.

The best way to get to the top is on the Peak Tram, a historical funicular railway which carves a steep 1,223-feet-high (373 meters) swathe up the green mountainside. The tram has been in operation since 1888.
