Big Buddha, hi! 1

My 12 GB memory card is packed with my holiday
pictures of Hong Kong and one of the first things I did
in HK was visiting my good ol' friend Big Buddha at
Lantau Island. It's been 17 years since my last visit
really.

I was looking very forward and couldn't wait to re-visit
this place again. Big Buddha is located at the tip of the
mountain and you can get there by using the bus or
 cable cart. Since there was a huge line at the cable
cart and I hate waiting, we chose to take the bus.

The day began with a drizzle. Luckily
Big Buddha wasn't so packed with tourist tho I can tell
there are more people than 17 years ago. Check out
my sightseeing pictures!


Oh hi there!


I was impressed of how strong the bus were cuz we were riding on steep mountain roads. Not to mention the beautiful view.


I thought I was reading 'pizza'...


I thought this panda backpack is cute.


Time to burn some fat people!


The first thing I've noticed are these stray dogs sleeping or wandering around. 

 Lunch at a monastery, all 100% vegetarian! Tasted réááálly good. That carved carrot reminds me of Batman c:


Made it to the top! Enjoying the area.

  10. I swear I saw the same dog when I went there a few weeks ago! I went a bit too late and they had already closed the gates to the stairs. The benefit I guess was that I was able to photograph the space around the Buddha free of tourists! I am envious you were able to climb up close though. Last time I went up there was when I was 4 years old!

  15. Hey Mei! Everything looks so green and the cable car looks like fun! love how foggy it is and how you can see the peak of the mountain merging from the fog and clouds. But the most amazing thing is you in your dress! that is just so fairy-like again and I love it so much on you~ :3

  27. That dress is neat. Wat een supercute design, staat je goed! En Big Buddha + surroundings is indrukwekkend, ik heb ooit in Kamakura (Japan) een big buddha gezien, zo prachtig. Door je foto's krijg ik echt weer wanderlust en heb ik zin om naar een land te gaan met veel, heel veel bergen! :p
