Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car announced its next service and maintenance period for June 26 – 27, 2013. Since this maintenance period is one of the regular scheduled maintenances of the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car ride, the maintenance period will not last too long and the closure of the popular Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car ride will only take about two days.
Visitors who 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 have basically two alternative transportation options: First option is to take one of the blue Lantau Taxis to the Ngong Ping Village (except to pay approx. HK$ 180). The second option is to 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. For more information about ticket fares as well as a time schedule please refer to the following link http://www.newlantaobus.com/road_23.htm.
Last but not least, the attractions around and at the themed Ngong Ping Village including Wisdom Path, multimedia theaters (e.g. Monkey Tale) as well as the entrance to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery remain unaffected and will be open for visitors during the scheduled maintenance period.
