Lantau Island is Hong Kong’s largest outlying landmass—even bigger than Hong Kong Island itself! It attracts hordes of devout pilgrims for two reasons: Tian Tan Buddha (a.k.a. Big Buddha) and Disneyland! Surrounding areas, like Ngong Ping Village, have become a tourist hotspot replete with shops and restaurants. What few know about, though, is that there are a lot more things to do on Lantau apart from its most popular attractions. Discover Tung Chung Fort, a citadel that defended the area against pirates. Watch endemic pink dolphins just off the coast; then, spend the rest of the day convening with nature at one of the many campsites, trails, and waterfalls.
