Tian Tan Buddha

sunny 82 °F

1. Take MTR, 25 minutes from Kowloon to Tung Cheung
2. Get on line for Ngong Ping cable car, waited 1 hour, incredible ride over the water and mountains for 25 minutes.
3. Walk 20 minutes in sweltering heat through tourist traps.
4. Climb 2 million steps in the same oppressive heat.
5. Walk under the most amazing peaceful Buddha with 360 views of the mountains and ocean.
6. Heat? Humidity? Forgotten.
