On Wednesday, January 21st, Joanne and I caught the ferry to Lantau Island. After an exciting bus ride of about 20 minutes, we arrived at the Po Lin Monastery. This is the home of the Tian Tan Buddha statue - the world's largest outdoor seated Buddha. This is definitely a site worth visiting - very impressive!! Here are a few photos of the Buddha and the surrounding area.
