2007 July: Hong Kong: Day 3: Lantau Island Monastery Tour


From Hotel, first stopover is the Avenue of Stars (http://www.avenueofstars.com.hk/eng/home.asp) in Kowloon Side.

Tour continues with a cruise ride on the South China Sea to see certain outlying islands of Hong Kong and a close-up view on flight departure from Hong Kong International Airport.


We are lucky enough to see the pink dolphins, but got no pictures worth uploading! Haha! Sad, I was not able to caught it on cam.

Tai O, also known as the " Venice of the East " was once the largest inhabited settlement on Lantau Island.

Po Lin Monastery (http://www.plm.org.hk/blcs/en/index.asp), known as the " Buddhist Kingdom in the South". The Monastery oversees the giant bronze staue of the Sakyamuni Buddha, world's largest, seated, outdoor bronze statue of Buddha (standing 24 metres high).
