Went to Ngong Ping today to see the giant Buddha. Took the metro straight from Nathan Road to Tum Chung, then we took the cable car over to Ngong Ping which took 25 minutes and the view was amazing. Once we got over there was a small shower of rain so we nipped in to a noodle bar and had ramen noodles, which were lovely. Then we took a walk up to the Po Lin monastry to see were the monks pray, it was so peeceful and they had incents burning all around which smelt lovely. Then we took the wisdom path coz we thought that we were in need of some. We took the steps up to the Buddha which was HUGE and very impressive. Becky felt as if she was in a book!
As soon as we stepped down from seeing the ( and Becky stepped out of her book ha ha) the heavens opened and we got soaked we had to then wait in the rain for two and a half hours for the cable car to work again so we could get of the island. Becky didn't moan about the rain which is unusual ( oh yeah she was sleeping on the bench). Once the cable car started workin again we headed back to the hostel so we could cure the jet lag and now it's 2am and were wide awake so not such a good idea s***!
