A very big Budah at the top of the same island that has the HK airport and HK Disneyland.
Yes even after the cable car ride you still have to climb the stairs to the top.
Bev under the watchful eye of the Budah.
The worlds largest bronze seated Budah in the world is on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It took 10 years and 70 million dollars to construct this Budah. It is 34 meters tall, weighs in at 250 tons, and is made of a steel framework with a one centimeter skin sculpture and also contains 1614 kilograms of Gold!
Bev and I visited on a beatuiful Sunday just two weeks ago.
The cable car ride to get up the mountain was fabulous and just a little scary. It was a about 15 min ride and changed directions 3 times with additional power stations.
