Amazing experience! The mixture of nature reflects the beauty of Hong Kong. You can see the green mountains with waterfalls, hiking trails and stairs in between, the sea and river, the beautiful buildings and the market. What makes it even more special, is The Big Buddha statue that is on top of the mountain! Unfortunately we missed the boat and dolphins’ experience since we arrived to the site very late (15:00) and it closes at (18:00). I highly recommend this adventure as a full day activity.

it was an exhilarating experience from the easy interactive process of booking as well as enjoying the actual trip with the cable car. The atmosphere at the destination was so peaceful and relaxing. A must for travelers.

Great experience, very clean and very organised. I would do it again and bring family with me.

The view is breathtaking. Be aware that at busy times there is a queue but is worth the wait.

Great deal for its price, ease of redeeming tickets and swift entrance into the park.
