Backpackmoon Day 4: Ngong Ping Village Hong Kong (END)

Finally, this is the last series of my Hong Kong Backpackmoon.
*teaser: there will be a giveaway after this post*

On Saturday September 8, a day before me & hubby went back to Indonesia, we visited Ngong Ping 360. We're glad we planned to visit this attraction a full day, coz there were so many adventures waiting for us there :D

To visit Ngong Ping, you must take MTR to Tung Chung. At Tung Chung, take cable car to Ngong Ping.
TIPS 1: if you're not afraid of height, choose "crystal cabin cable car"! It's more expensive, but you can have a cable car with less queue, less people inside, and most important: glass bottomed cable car!

You can see EVERYTHING below you! I saw trees, mountains, airport, sea, and boats under my feet!

Then we arrived at Ngong Ping. Me + hubby wore I love HK t-shirt we bought a day before, because we ran out clothes. Remember the first post of HK Backpackmoon? We only brought a few clothes to minimize baggage.
Cute photo spot! *picture taken by tripod*

Cute gate to the village!

The village itself contained cute cafes (some are famous cafes like Starbucks, Honeymoon Dessert, etc etc), and some paid attraction "Monkey Theatre" and "Walking With Buddha".
TIPS 2: if you planned to do that 2 attractions, buy the ticket as a package when you buy cable car ticket. Cheaper!
Anyway, "Monkey Theatre" has no real monkey... It's a movie show but quite interesting to watch.
"Walking with Buddha" was also interesting, interactive multimedia show. You should visit it!
Time needed for those shows: 30 minutes - 1 hour

Then we explore Ngong Ping further...
TIPS 3: Bring sunglasses! It was soooooo hot & bright at noon!!
I forgot to bring mine, duh... So I bought cheapo sunglasses at souvenir shop =__=
Giant Buddha statue & a gate... I don't know what's written =__=

Giant Buddha pose! Look at my ugly sunglasses. At souvenir shop it cost about Rp 100.000. Better brought it from home, yeah?

There were many statues of "panglima perang". Copy the pose!


Happy couple :D

My hubby decided to go up, seeing giant buddha, while me (too tired to get upstair) waiting =__=

Then we visited a temple..


Cute girl poses at the temple!

Cute girl, too!

TIPS 4: buy vegetarian meal sold near the temple :D We bought Chinese snack... We thought it's halal coz vegetarian don't do pork & alcohol, rite?

Pose with a "bule" :P I borrowed his hat...


Went to "wisdom path"... Actually I was so tired & wanna go back, but my hubby insisted..
Tired face, lol...

And I was lucky I joined my hubby..

Feels like in the middle of stonehenge hehehhee... But we didn't understand what was written on the stones...

Peaceful!

And that's all folks! 

Thank you for reading this journey... I hope this series of article encourage you to go see the world :D

Actually there's still 5th day story, our last day in HK.. But we didn't take any pictures since we're already packed & ready to go back to Indonesia. We visited IKEA Hong Kong, and Victoria Park. You know the movie "Minggu Pagi di Victoria Park"? Well, we went to Victoria Park on Sunday and there were hundreds... maybe thousands of Indonesian workers, gathering at the park and enjoy Sunday... Wow!! Feels like being home again, eh? :D
