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 :)
Fantastic area full of antique shops and trendy restaurants. In the evening it's the place to be, with plenty of music and cool bars. The vibe flows over onto the streets, where ultimately a lot of the dancing and drinking happens. Don't miss it!
