Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong. There is a spectacular cable car known as the Ngong Ping 360. It is considered to be the longest in Asia. Being there during the Chinese New Year is amazing. It is the same New Year that has made us take their symbols into our own calendar. Characters for the year can be horses, dragons, snakes or even rabbits. Confusion sometimes arises when deciding whether a year can be characterized by the rabbit or the cat. This is because of the multi tone of the word “cat”. The road towards the big Buddha as many other streets of Hong Kong are always decorated on the first day of the first moon on the Chinese lunar calendar This marks the beginning of a new year.
