stunningly gorgeous. depending on when you go the waterfalls off the mountains are quite different. the best time to go is in spring when the snow is just melting. by the end of summer it's like a low flow shower head.
This buddha is pretty impressive, and you can go to this island by taking a boat from Hong Kong. Once you have reach the top of the island (by walking) you can take a gondola lift to go down and you will be able to see the new airport from the sky (pretty cool :)
Make sure to walk over to the Ile-St. Louis which is connected to the island where Notre Dame is by a footbridge. Less tourists, better place to grab a bite or ice cream (see Berthillon) and a cool neighborhood.
Sugar freaks, chocoholics, pie fiends take note: You will feel like you've died and gone to heaven. From compost cookies to croissants, ice cream to coffee, once you go, you'll be a Milk Bar evangelist.
