That's One Big Buddha!

Seeing the Tian Tan Buddha in Hong Kong was number one on my list of places to visit whilst in Hong Kong. Little did I know there was such a long cable car journey involved that went into the heavens to reach it, the alternative was to walk trek miles which would have taken all day! Needless to say I don't have hiking shoes so the cable car it was!
The Cable car went over the sea and 3 mountains to Nging Ping on Lantau Island.

There were eight brass figures in a circle around the base of the sitting buddha
giving offerings
