LANTAU ISLAND MONASTERY TOUR (AM)
Duration: Approx. 7 hours
Lantau means“ broken head “ in Cantonese, perhaps because the ragged Lantau Peak dominates its rugged dignity. The relative quiet and sheltered serenity of the island not only provides a peaceful gateway for harried urbanites, but also is an appropriate setting for the many Christian and Buddhist monasteries located there. The still unspoilt beauty of its mountains and the charm of its old fishing villages make it a destination not to be missed!
Also known as Silver Mine Bay, which is no more than an hour away by ferry from the bustling heart of the Central District.
