Lantau Island, an Island with amazing scenic, rich Culture & Heritage, beautiful nature and many more. If you are a nature person who enjoys the beaches, hiking, exploring the hidden beauty, you could probably spend a whole week here without going to the city! However, if its your first time visiting Hong Kong, I don’t recommend you just stay in the island for your whole journey as you gonna miss all the amazing landmarks! Unless you really hate city life or you already been there 😛
