I walked to the subway station and took the train to Tung Chung; I am going to the Big Buddha statue the Tian Tan Buddha.
The cable car was not operational so I took bus 23 to Ngong Ping.
It was a beautiful ride through the lush, green mountains of Lantau island.
When we got closer we could even see the staue from afar:
After about 50 minutes we had reached our destination and I was there!
It took a few steps to get to the top, but eventually I got there.
It was a big statue, but... I expected a bigger one..?
I mean, after all, it was the largest seated Buddha in 1993 when it was built.
But it sure wasn't small.
Either way, it was cool to be here. :)
There were also some smaller statues around the Big Buddha.
After seeing the Buddha, I took the bus back - and then the subway to Kowloon, which is the main land part of Hong Kong city.
Here also smaller (and older) buildings could be found next to the tall skyscrapers.
I went through Kowlon Park and finally arrived at the The Garden of Stars.
Here they celebrate the movie starts of Hong Kong. There were a lot of hand prints from actors/actresses like Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li, Maggie Cheung and Raymond Chow.
But the main reason for being there is that they have a statue of the big hero; Bruce Lee
I also went to the pier and took photos of Hong Kong island; this is a panorama picture of said side:
After this I took the Star Ferry over to Hong Kong island.
I walk back to the hotel and... didn't really do that much more during this day (truth is I fell asleep at five in my bed and didn't wake up until around midnight).
Tomorrow I will go to inland China for work so this is the final day-report for this trip.
