Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong. We often hear Hong Kong’s sky scrapers, festivals, food, urban life, clubs, restaurants, karaoke, and – of course – harbor with ferries and turbojet “Catamaran”. But, it is contrary with Hong Kong Island and Kowloon which are full of city lights, modern buildings, and pollution; we can see oriental nature and traditional villages in Lantau. There is Hong Kong Hotel in Lantau, so it is considerable to stay there, and enjoy fishing, biking in country side, Chinese white dolphin in its water, Hong Kong Disneyland, Buddhist’s theme park Ngong Ping 360, and so on.
Hong Kong as a whole is the most important Asian’s hub to the western culture. Uniquely, its oriental-originated culture was enriched by British’s colonization for very long time and just renowned by People’s Republic of China in 1997. Then, this city was administered as Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. But the British’s influence is still strong enough till nowadays. Anyway, the transportation is well developed. We can see international airport in Lantau Island, MRT connection system, buses, trams, ferries, and many more. If you want to discover Lantau Island more than enjoying city’s leisure, it is good for you to stay in Lantau. Moreover, underscore that the airport is in Lantau.
