I just went for the Ngong Ping Cable car on monday, reached around 12noon..not much ppl. Waited only around 10 min or less to board the cable car.

The Wisdom Path is under some construction, so there are scarfoldings on the wooden beams, might not be very picturesque though.
thanks for the reply memphis

i was thinking of reaching there at 10am (the time it opens to go up). Anyone has experience going there on a weekday morning can share please?

by the way, memphis, do we need to pay entrance fee to go up the big buddha?

also saw on the website that there is a tour 'walking with buddha' and 'monkey..' tours..

did u join those tours?

Just before u went up the stairs to the buddah, there are counters selling tix which is acutally for vegetarian dining/snacks. We thought we need to purchase them (I cant understand cantonese) but actually no need. Just ignore them and climb up the stairs.

The walking with buddah and monkey tours we didn't go. Ngong Ping Village is similar to "Tang Dynasty" @ Ocean Park if you have been there. Thus these tours are housed inside those ancient chinese bldgs.

Enjoy your trip!

the peak normally very crowded in evenings, especially during weeknds. the wait at the tram terminal is quite long.

most shopping mals and shops open around 11am. at around 10am very few are open for business. better to spend time yum cha and chill out.

Most of the days you reached hotel by 9pm?? That's pretty early IMO, Hk shops closed around 11pm and there is plenty to do after 9pm

if u are takin full cost airline? if u are taking low cost carrier/budget airline, they only allow 20kg.. one piece luggage cannot exceed 32kg.. its the international rule..

Hi kasyes, hope u enjoy ur stay in this forum.

Ocean park is as far from disney land and new terrorities, but its faster from disneyland to ocean park as there are high speed rail and road links directly to hong kong island.

This high speed rail is it the KCR? are they easy to take?

Road links - u mean by the Citybus or something like that? thks.
