5 hidden gems on the Lantau Island 五個遊客忽略的大嶼山景點

Apart from saying hello to the Big Buddha and Mickey Mouse, you can still find 5 out of common tourist track sightseeing points on the largest Lantau Island in Hong Kong......

Inspiration Lake
The free Inspiration Lake, which has a water fountain capable of shooting up to 18 meters in height, is Hong Kong's biggest artificial lake.  Disney uses the water to irrigate its plants.  Travelers may pay a reasonable price to ride bicycle around and have paddle-boating on the lake.  It is a good place for the lovers and families to make some happy memories.

Pak Mong Village

You can see indigenous people's history and life at Pak Mong near the North Lantau Link Highway.  In the past, most Lantau islanders relied on Pak Mong to travel to other places for works and businesses by boats, just like today's Mui Wo or Tung Chung.  You can see two heritages at the remote Pak Mong: a small incinerator to burn the wastes and a guard tower to protect the people.

Tung Chung Fort

Lantau was infamous for its pirates lairs and opium smuggling in the past.  The Qing Dynasty thus built the Tung Chung Fort in about 1830 to strengthen the defense.  The (190 x 740)m fortress is a rare well-preserved military heritage in Hong Kong.  You can still see the old cannons there.

Lou Han (Arhat) Temple  

Lou Han (Arhat) Temple is a good place to understand more about the Buddhism.  In its Arhat Cave, you can see Buddha's students, 18 Arhats.  They have achieved enlightenment, but Buddha ordered them to stay in the world to help the people.  They have different capabilities and wisdom.  They propagate Buddhism through helping people, just like the Saints in the Western religions.

Chek Lap Kok New Village Tin Hau Temple

When government developed the new airport on the Chek Lap Kok Island, the indigenous people with their small temple, which was completely built by the granite, were moved to Lantau.  The rebuilt temple can show you the popular local Goddess of the Seas (Tin Hau) belief, Hong Kong's old industry, masonry, and the masons' great works.

除了大佛和米奇老鼠,其實香港最大的島嶼 – 大嶼山還有五個遊客常常忽略的有趣景點:

迪欣湖
免費入場的迪欣湖是香港最大的人工湖,迪士尼用湖水灌溉樂園植物。遊客付出不多就可租單車繞湖一周或租小艇泛舟湖上,欣賞可噴水十八米高的噴泉。迪欣湖實在是戀人和家庭的好去處。

 

白芒村

公路旁邊的白芒村有大嶼山原居民的歷史。白芒以前是一個繁忙的渡口,居民從那兒乘船到其他地方做生意和工作,就如今天的東涌和梅窩一樣。偏遠的白芒有兩個古蹟:用來燒垃圾的小型焚化爐和用作防衛的更樓。

 

東涌炮台

以前大嶼山最有名的是海盜和走私客。1830年清朝政府興建東涌炮台加強防衛。這座大型古堡是香港少有保存良好的戰爭古蹟,遊客還可以看到當年的古炮。

 

羅漢寺

羅漢寺是一個可以讓你深入認識佛教的地方。在其中的羅漢洞,有十八個栩栩如生,面目各有不同的羅漢。其實他們是佛陀的學生。佛陀叫本可以成佛的學生們留在人間,傳播佛教。他們就利用各自不同的智慧和異能在人間助人傳教了。

 

赤鱲角新村石造天后廟

政府為了在赤鱲角興建新機場,把赤鱲角的原居民連同他們完全以花崗岩建造的天后廟搬到大嶼山。到此用原本石材重建的小廟一遊,可知道更多本地流行的天后信仰、香港早期的工業–打石的發展和石匠的巧手工藝。
