Lantau Part 1: Ngong Ping 360, Big Buddha and Tai O

Note: I’m splitting our day in Lantau into two blog posts. We did Lantau (Parts 1 and 2) in one day which was doable but tiring. You can easily dedicate a day to each part.

When I was a child growing up in LA, my dad worked for Disney. One perk of being a Disney employee is free entrance to Disneyland, so I spent a lot of time there! I love Disneyland and when I found out there was a Disneyland in Hong Kong, I had to check it out!

Due to jetlag, we woke up at 7am. Disneyland didn’t open until 10:30am, so we decided to do Ngong Ping 360 + Big Buddha + Tai O in the morning, then go to Disneyland in the afternoon.

We took the Tung Chung line to Sunny Bay station, where we transferred to the Disneyland Resort line.

Review: Hotel Indigo Anaheim

TL;DR: I would definitely stay here again. Convenient location, free parking, and comfortable rooms make Hotel Indigo Anaheim a great value.


I booked this hotel for four nights in June. The nightly rate was $236 for a total of $1104. (I had originally booked for five nights, but I decided to spend one night at the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey. I called about a week before my checkin date and adjusted my reservation.)
