Take that cable car ride now, or face long wait
Here's a tip ... if you have out-of-town visitors, you'd better take them to ride the Ngong Ping 360 this weekend because, from Monday, the cable-car service to the Big Buddha on Lantau will be closed for about six weeks for its annual maintenance. However, the MTR Corporation wants to add that the Ngong Ping Village will remain open for visitors and can be reached by taxi or Lantau Island buses. As if there are people who would actually make the tourist trap a destination. If you can't go before Monday, then you'll have to wait until close to October.
