wouldlove to take cable car.. but its close.... after a whole day lantau is there still time for shopping?
Should have. The Big Buddha area can roughly divided into 3 parts
1. Tian Tan Buddha (or what is know here as Big Buddha).
2. Directly facing the bronze Buddha is the temple proper - Po Lin Monastery.
3. and lastly, the little known Wisdom path of 'The Heart Sutra'. This secluded place is situated about 15-20mins slow walk from the Tian Tan Buddha. Over there you will see sutra being engraved on tall wooden pillars and erected on a grass slope in a figure of 8.

For us, we spent about 1 hour each on the above locations. So that should leave you enough time to shop at CityGate. You may skip the last one if it doesn't interest you (since to some it is just a few pieces of woods).

This is NOT my photo. Source

you mean time to visit the big Buddha after Citygate?

You reserve 3hrs for the visit lor. The access to the top of the Buddha closes at 6pm and the last bus leaves the place about 730pm ( around there). So you time accordingly. But heh, u will be carrying your shoping bags ard!!!

Let's map out your itineraries

1030 Depart for Lantau.
1130 Reach Tung Chung MTR (journey ~40mins)
1200 Reach Tian Tan Buddda by Bus.
1500 Spend 3 hrs visitng + lunch.
1530 Return to Tung Chung / Citigate
???? depends how long u want to shop here???
????+1hr To go back to your hotel to offload ur shopping bags.

I reckon that it will be 1800++ hrs when you reached your hotel. An awkard timing I must say because you have not taken your dinner and it takes an hour to reach the shopping zones like TST or CWB. And their shopping centres are very much like ours, close at 930pm or thereabout.

Perhaps you can shop around TST's Granvile street and the night markets @ YMT. They close late.

If you can reach TST before 2000hrs, you may park around the Star Ave to watch the free 'Symphony of Lights' performance.

Visitors will be able to once again enjoy the scenic 25-minute cable car journey between Tung Chung and Ngong Ping when commercial service resumes at 10:00 am on 31 December 2007.

I had changed my upcoming trip itinerary due to reopening of NP360...it is one of the must take rides. I enjoyed taking it back in May this year. =)
