Although this is quite a jaunt from central Hong Kong (a ferry trip and a long bus ride or sky rail), it is well worth the trip. Buddhas don't get any bigger than this. Dreamed up by the community of monks on Lantau , it took more than ten years to build. It is made entirely of metal and consists of a steel framework covered by steel and bronze, as well as over one ton of gold amalgam. Note, however there are 268 steps to get to the Buddha.
