What is the best way or how to get to Ngong Ping Village, Po Lin Monastery, Big Buddha and the other attractions during the closure times of Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car?
In case you still would like to visit the themed Ngong Ping Village during the maintenance period of the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and are already in Tung Chung there are basically two alternative transportation options: First you can take one of the blue Lantau Taxis to the Ngong Ping Village (expect to pay approx. HK$ 180) or second, simply take the New Lantau Bus No. 23. In case you opt to take the New Lantau Bus No. 23 be prepared for long queues.
