What you can expect

Join me for one of the must-see places on your Hong Kong adventure: Lantau Island - the quiet and green side of Hong Kong. Enjoy spectacular mountains, sandy beaches, wildlife, a traditional fishing village and much more!

Lantau is a stunning island mostly untouched and can only be accessed by public transport. We will explore by local buses, boats, walking and cable cars to access all areas.

Starting in Mui Wo, we'll make a stop on the way to Tai O, to see local buffalos and walk along the wide sandy beaches. From there we'll hop on the bus and head to Tai O village, a place you can't miss if you're in this area. This relaxing and traditional village is one of the best preserved places on Lantau, indeed the whole of Hong Kong.

Situated at the end of the Pearl River Delta, where it meets the South China Sea, its history and culture are intrinsically linked to its geographical location. A boat trip around the stilt houses of this tightly-knit fishing community is included and a visit to the Tai O Heritage hotel.

Big Buddha statue and the Po Lin Monastery are the next places that we'll visit. Climb the 268 steps to reach the Big Buddha, world's largest outdoor bronze Buddha statue, weighing 250 tons and visit the Po Lin Monastery and the Wisdom Trail.

Then return to Tung Chung on the famous cable car. Enjoy spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the South China Sea, HK Airport, Lantau Country Park and giant Buddha.

An avid world traveller and lover of food, wine, animals and the great outdoors.

I’m Australian and live in South Lantau, a unique and beautiful part of Hong Kong. I love exploring and finding new places to visit, eat and see in the city of Hong Kong and further afield. From great food, to arts, culture and sport Hong Kong has something for everyone.

I would love to show you Hong Kong from the highlights to the out of the way places. Let me know what you are interested in and the tour can be personalised.

A vibrant and diverse city, lets enjoy Hong Kong!"
