Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car will undergo their yearly maintenance and operation will be suspended for five days starting from September 17, 2012 to September 21, 2012.
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.
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 (except 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. 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 we like to point the next scheduled maintenance period for the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car which allows all visitors a better planning of their Christmas trip to Hong Kong. Currently, the next maintenance period for the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car has been scheduled for two days in December ( 5th & 6th, 2012).
