Hong Kong’s Lantau Big Buddha, Part 1

Alex took me to one of Hong Kong’s most famous Buddhist sights: Lantau Big Buddha.

Back in the day people would walk the miles-long trail… but now we have a lift =]

They have this special transparent cabin that allows you to see 360 degrees!

This sight is really popular so there’s usually a very long line. We got lucky though! There was almost no one in line ^^ I think it’s because we went in the early afternoon. Everyone was already up there XD

They had this cute painting on display near the area people wait in line to board the lift.

We got some great views of Hong Kong from up in the lift ^^

It’s unfortunately a little difficult to make out in this picture… but the trail lined with Buddhas went through beautiful forested areas =]

We could see buffalo from the lift too!

And finally… the Buddha!

Ngong Ping 360, the Village at the Top

In Hong Kong, shopping is a national sport. You can shop literally ANYWHERE! So it was no surprise that this historic Buddhist site was no exception XD 

Chinese Zodiac!

Stay tuned for Part 2! ❤

Cathedral of Notre Dame

Just ‘cuz I live in Paris doesn’t mean I can’t do touristy stuff ;D

Wandering around Paris looking for the cathedral

These were right above the entrance to the cathedral

I took a quick video inside the cathedral too. There was a woman singing =]
