If you are visiting Hong Kong, you really need to add Lantau Island as one of the places to visit on your itinerary. You can easily spend the entire day exploring and the photos here are of just two of the locations Lantau has to offer.
To get there from Hong Kong Island, take the Tung Chung MTR line (Hong Kong Station in Central). You simply take this train all the way to the end of the line in Tung Chung.
Once you are off the train, take exit B where you'll have access to the bus terminal or the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car. To get to the Tai O fishing village, you can take the #11 Bus to Tai O. The more scenic route however is to take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car to the Tian Tan Buddha.
Once you've completed your visit to the Tian Tan Buddha, take the #21 bus to the Tai O and explore the fishing village where you'll see the stilt houses that line the river and countless vendors selling their wares.
