Visiting Lantau Island in Hong Kong? Take the chance to explore the Ngong Ping Village and immerse yourself in its rich culture as you appreciate the Chinese-style architecture present in the area.
Ngong Ping Village is a 1.5-hectare open-air tourist attraction that serves as a home to various themed shops, dining spots, and entertainment spaces. On one side, you can see the famous Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) and the Ngong Ping Piazza. The Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal is linked to the other end.
While there, you shouldn’t miss taking a photo with the huge Lucky Cat, an icon of luck and fortune usually found with its left paw up. There are also smaller versions of this endearing character which you can see in storefronts.
Traveling Filipinos are pretty accustomed to buying treats for friends and relatives back home. Ngong Ping Village is where you can find interesting pasalubong items you can hardly find elsewhere in Hong Kong. These souvenirs make great gifts as well.
