Exploring Ngong Ping 360 in Lantau Island (How to go and what to expect)

My best friend hasn’t been to Ngong Ping 360 and so I decided to take her there during our trip.

How to go: Ride the MTR until Tung Chung station and exit at B

When you go out walk straight towards the left of City Gate Outlet, cross a small street (you will see a lot of bus on the right). You will see a sign “To Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car”.
Ride the escalator up.

This is what you will see at the top of the escalator.

Walk towards the line to buy tickets


tip: mention the 1+1 round trip cable car experience if you want to try the crystal glass bottom only once, they will not mention that “promotion” when you reach the ticket booth

My best friend and I decided to ride the crystal bottom cable car going to Ngong Ping 360. This was our view from the cable car ride!

Second thing we did was go walk the “Wisdom Path”. This was my first time exploring this area!

After returning from the Wisdom Path, we decided to head back down. We really didn’t have much time to explore the place since we already arrived past lunch time at Ngong Ping 360.

It’s advisable to line up early since the line is usually long going back to the city. Last cable car usually leaves around 6 or 7 pm.
