Day 4 of Hong Kong-Macau Trip at Ngong Ping and Giant Buddha
Day 4 of our Hong Kong-Macau trip was a Sunday. Before going for our sight seeing, we went to the Rosary Church at Chatam Road South to hear the mass. Surprisingly, there are a lot of Filipinos that mass. After the mass, we looked for a place to eat. We went to this restaurant that offers hot noodles. It wasn't that bad at all. It was actually yummy!

After our breakfast, we went to the Maritime Square to collect my travel voucher. If you buy an Octopus card (MRT card), you will receive vouchers and discounts that you can use on shops. At the Maritime Square, we saw the Sanrio Village exhibit. You need to pay though to get inside. Since we are at that mall, we went to Marks & Spencer to use the $20 voucher. I think we bought a bottled water and a pack of cookies. Anyway, after our quick drop at that mall, we went to Tung Chung Station where the Ngong Ping cable car was. Maybe on my next Hong Kong trip, I can try the Crystal Cabin. Quite expensive though.

The cable car experience was awesome and the view was magnificent. Before reaching Ngong Ping, you can see a glimpse of the Giant Buddha. Before seeing the attractions at the Ngong Ping, we went for a late lunch. The food was great. I especially liked the honey glazed chicken wings, yum! After our lunch, we went to watch the show "Walking with the Buddha."

After watching the Buddha, we had planned to watch the Monkey's Tale but we were a bit late so we skipped that. Instead, we visited the Giant Buddha. I don't know how many steps to the top but it was worth it. The view was splendid especially with the orange sun. It was just so cold on top of the Giant Buddha so bring your jackets. Lastly, we walked to the Wisdom Path. This path was never ending so after the Giant Buddha, you may want to rest first.

Going home was a hassle though since Ngong Ping closes early. It was a long queue to the cable car unless you want the Crystal Cabin where there is no queue.

See you again Giant Buddha!
