Ah, thanks. We didn't get to Lantau last time we were there. Maybe in February we will make it.

We did make it to the Ten Thousand Buddha's monastery though - they could do with a cable car there! Its a hell of a lot of steps to climb!

You are right. We were there last year and in fact we did not go on either!

We took the bus up and back down the Peak as the queues for the tram were horrendous. It was much quicker, easier and cheaper taking the bus. When visiting the Big Buddha we couldnt take the cable car as it was closed all week for maintenance. They laid on an air conditioned coach instead so that was no problem. That was a great day out.

We found it highly amusing that we were visiting the Po Lin Monastery and the first thing we saw when we got off the cable car was a Subway. It is a fantastic place to visit though.

We had to take bus to the peak when we visited as they were doing work on the tram to the peak. Having done the top deck front of a double decker bus down from the peak I recommend you get the tram up and the bus down. its better than any thrill ride!

We loved the cable car to Nong Ping a great day out. Really looking to returning in Oct

WDWMAD did you like Disneyland hotel? We are trying to decide which hotel to book. We are three nights in Kowloon Icon and then two at a Disney hotel.

We loved it, although we have the Grand Floridian as our home resort in Vacation Club so we are a bit bias as it was basically a smaller version of the Grand Floridian, very beautiful and right by the sea. The pool area is fantastic as are the maze and gardens.

Am I right in saying that there is only 1 Disney hotel in Hong Kong?
