Tian Tan Buddha, also known as the Big Buddha, is a large bronze statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, completed in 1993, and located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. The statue is sited near Po Lin Monastery and symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and faith. It is a major centre of Buddhism in Hong Kong, and is also a popular tourist attraction.

    Fairly impressive statue with a nice view. If you've been to other Buddhist countries this might not be all that interesting but it is nice to pair with the cable car and there's some temples, statues, shops and scenery around that you can check out and enjoy as well (although its a bit on the touristy side). There is the option to go inside which we didn't do so can't comment on that.

    Incredible place where the spiritual strength of the temples is tangible, even if surrounded in a touristic, commercial atmosphere. Better to plan a full day to visit this place. To get to the peak The Cable car is convenient, but there are also some amazing trail paths of various length that pass through the forest. Anyway for walkings, additional trails start from the peak.

    Nice thing to combine with the peak tram in one day, some line ups here for the gondola especially coming down but the minor wait was worth it. I found two things especially interesting: the construction details of the Buddha and the cows on the way there. Seriously the cows were so friendly and happy. Give them a pet and they want to lick the salt off your arms, they really go to town if you let them.

    A wonderful day out. Very impressive, huge statue of Buddha. Surrounding area is great for a day out. A must see when visiting Hong Kong. Can be combined with a beautiful hike along Lantau Trail section 2.

    Absolutely magestic statue. Although you may encounter a line, it’s very well organized and it moves relatively quickly. Buy your tickets online to save time. It will speed up the process once you’re there.
