Lantau Island is the largest of Hong Kong’s islands – larger than Hong Kong Island in fact - and was quite a sleepy place, lush with forest and dotted with fishing villages, until the last few decades when some larger developments started to get underway.

These days the island’s main attractions, aside from the forests, the beaches and walking trails that meander round, are the 85 foot bronze ‘Giant’ Tian Tan Buddha and his monastery, Hong Kong Disney, Tung Chung Fort, the Ngong Ping ‘cultural themed replica village’ and Tai O, a genuine three centuries old village with several hundred houses on stilts.
