The Big Buddha is a pretty amazing sight to see. He is about 50 feet tall and sits atop a large hill. There are stairs leading up to it. There is even a restaurant inside of him. We walked up the stairs in amazement. All along the outside of him are smaller (about 15 foot tall) statues of goddesses making offerings. People attempt to throw coins into their outstretched hands. All around the bottom of the hill are sights to see as well. There are temples and arches and many places to take pictures. We also found a small pathway that led around that portion of the island and offered a view of the new airport, Chek Lap Kok.
