Ngong Ping 360 is a term for an aerial tramway and a tourist centre at the end station of the tramway. The cable car line connects Lantau island and central Hong Kong and ends in the mountains, in the Ngong Ping Village.
The cable car ride lasts for about 20 minutes. During it you will first get to take a look at the Lantau island and Hong Kong, then watch the sea that separates them, and finally ride through the wooded mountains. Taking this gondola lift and enjoying the view of a monastery with Tian Tan Buddha statue along the way is a wonderful way to experience Hong Kong from a different angle.
There are many different shops and restaurants to be found in the village at the end of the line. They offer a variety of souvenirs and foods – even vegans can pick something out! The giant Buddha statue is reachable from the end of the village.
Be warned though, the queues may be extremely long even if you don’t visit during holidays. You can skip the lines if you book a ticket in advance from Ngong Ping 360 official website.
The cable car ride is closed due to maintenance from January to June 2017. A bus rides to the village instead.
