Lantau Island is home to the famous Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and the epic Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride. Aside from these not-to-miss sites, Lantau is also home to my favorite view and landscape in Hong Kong. Climbing up the steps of the Big Buddha reveals a beautiful 360-degree view of surrounding Lantau. I had been to Lantau last year, when I was in Hong Kong, and fell in love with the rolling landscape. On my recent trip back to Lantau, I was completely surprised by how low the clouds were on that particular day, creating a completely different (and magical) scene from the already-gorgeous Lantau that I had seen one year ago.
