Day 3 - Hong Kong
1. Lantau Island (Ngong Ping 360 Experience / Tian Tan Buddha / Po Lin Monastery)
This is what we did with the private cabin; set up tripod and snap tons of silly pictures
Reaching soon… View from the cable car
Welcome to Ngong Ping Village
Actually there is nothing much here, just some restaurants and souvenir shops. If you intend to take your breakfast or lunch, i suggest that you might wan to try the vegetarian food from the Po Lin Monastery.

We purchased the vegetarian snacks coupon for the entrance inside the Tian Tan Buddha and claim our snack at the Po Lin Monastery Vegetarian Kitchen. However, the vegetarian meal coupon can also be purchased at the entrance of the Vegetarian Kitchen and there are several options for you to choose (general meal / deluxe meal) where you can dine inside the restaurant. In my case, we just purchased the snacks coupon that include fried rice vermicelli with two side dishes and a bowl of bean curd dessert (HK$33/pax).

2. Citygate Outlets Shopping Mall

3. The City Night View @ The peak
We went up the Peak via tram from the peak tram lower terminus. Actually there are other alternatives to go up the peak, eg. by taxi or public bus. But for a first timer like us, the peak tram will be our first choice.
Can you see the crowd????
Mutton Curry with Rice (Boyfie love this so much)
Fried vermicelli with fish fillet (obviously it's a wrong decision again)
1A, G/F, The Peak Galleria 118 Peak Road, Hong Kong
Opening Hours: 8.30am – 11.00pm
Tai Cheong Bakery 泰昌饼家 @ The Peak Galleria
Must try: Egg tart, bbq pork pie
View from the Peak Galleria
Personally i felt that the view from the free observation deck @ Peak Galleria is amazing enough and there is no need for us to spend a couple bucks for the entrance of Sky Terrance 428.
Wefie using the huge tripod
