Quote: I went to Hong Kong for five days over New Year's. I am a budget traveller and thought that I would share my experience with you.

There is a vegetarian restaurant at the bottom of the hill with a confusing ordering system. You must buy your meal ticket from the adjacent souvenir counter and present it at the restaurant door. They will give you a table number and you just sit there until they bring you the set menu. And there was a lot of food and it was all delicious.
The statue is fairly new and you can find the history from the exhibition hall inside the plinth. Be warned that this trip may take a lot longer than you anticipated, but it is worth the time and effort, I believe.
