Escape the manic pace of downtown Hong Kong with a relaxed tour of Lantau Island’s scenic environs. Begin with breathtaking panoramic views of the island as you soar high above the water on a 5.7km cable car journey to Ngong Ping Village, the spiritual (and physical) home of the Tian Tan Buddha. Relax with a cup of Chinese tea and atmospheric music at the Linong Tea House, before transferring to a bus for a beautiful winding journey to the island’s western outpost, Tai O. Time will appear to stand still as you explore the narrow streets and fish markets of this historic stilted village, often referred to as the ‘Venice of the East’. Your guides will introduce you to Tai O’s coastal wetlands and mangrove habitats, where you may spot fiddler crabs and mudskippers hiding in the depths. Local experts will then teach you how to make their signature salted egg yolks and tofu puddings – don’t knock it until you try it! And don’t forget to take home fisher folk delicacies such as shrimp paste and dried seafood.
