For anyone going to Hong Kong, I think the journey to Lantau Island was unmissable. The main attraction of the island was, none other than the Giant Buddha himself. I think all the walking was enough to burn off whatever extra calories I've put on. Despite the hazy weather conditions that day, the view was still fabulous with its challenging walking trails for walkers to enjoy.
Happy Photo Hunters and Happy walking folks!
