What To Expect

Everyone knows that Ngong Ping 360 in Hong Kong is a must-visit destination that will leave you in awe! Brace yourself for an extraordinary cable car ride offering breathtaking views of lush mountains and picturesque landscapes. Marvel at the brand-new Crystal+ cabins, where you'll find yourself surrounded by fully tempered glass, taking your cable car experience to new heights where you can enjoy a more immersive experience than ever before!

Here are two little pro-tips for you. First, we highly recommend that you plan the photos and poses you want before you hop onto the Crystal+ cabin because you’ll be so mesmerised by the sights and ambiance that you might forget to take any pictures at all! One very iconic pose is to sit on the floor of the gondola and have someone take a picture of you from above, this gives the illusion of sitting on air and it’s perfect to add to your Instagram feed. Second, take the Crystal+ journey on your way down instead of going up from Tung Chung. Trust us, it’ll save your time waiting in line! You can book this product from here directly!

Once you arrive at Ngong Ping Village, immerse yourself in a charming blend of traditional Chinese architecture and modern influences. And guess what? It’s not just a shopping and dining paradise, but also a fun spot for taking IG-worthy photos. But that’s not all, because Ngong Ping Village is also the perfect gateway to other amazing places like the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery.

Be sure to visit the awe-inspiring Giant Golden Buddha in Lantau, Hong Kong. Standing tall at over 34 metres, this magnificent statue is a symbol of peace and serenity. Immerse yourself in its majestic presence and soak in the spiritual ambiance of the surrounding Po Lin Monastery. A must-visit for travellers seeking a glimpse into Hong Kong's rich cultural heritage!

For an experience you can’t get anywhere else, we suggest you take a trip to the Wisdom Path near the Giant Golden Buddha where 38 giant wooden columns inscribed with the calligraphy symbolising wisdom and completeness in its original language create a serene atmosphere. The columns are arranged in a “∞” pattern following the natural terrain of the site to signify infinity.

It’s the perfect place to relax and take in nature and history! Not to mention, you’ll be able to capture IG-worthy pictures and moments to relive all over again once your trip is over. #NgongPingVillage
