The Po Lin Monastery

A great day trip in Hong Kong is the Po Lin Monastery, most known for the Giant Buddha statue high above.

Po Lin can be reached by either the New Lantau Bus number 23 or the Ngong Ping Cable Car both of which can be caught at the Tung Chung MTR Station just a short ride down from the Airport on Lantau Island.

Visitors are reminded that, while the 68 foot high Tian Tan Buddha attracts millions of pilgrims a year, the monastery is the home and worship place of hundreds of monks.  Please be respectful.
