Hong Kong Trip Day 2: Ngong Ping Village and Tian Tan Buddha Statue


Hong Kong Trip Day 2: Ngong Ping Village and Tian Tan Buddha Statue

After lunch at the Ngong Ping Garden Restaurant, we went to check out the well-known Tian Tan Buddha Statue (天坛大佛) and had a walk around the Ngong Ping Village (昂坪市集).

We came upon the famous mountain water tofu custard (石磨山水豆腐花). A must try!!!

On our way back to Tung Chung (東涌). We'll do some shopping there at the Citygate Outlets before heading back to Disneyland again to catch up with the fireworks show.

    1. Thanks! Glad that you did. The weather was alright when we visited Hong Kong, but a bit warm and hazy.
