Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong. This hilly island hosts prominent attractions like the Hong Kong outpost of Disneyland and the Ngong Ping 360, a cable car system that transports visitors to the Po Lin Monastery and the 34-meter tall Big Buddha, the center of Buddhism in Hong Kong. Other Lantau attractions include Citygate Outlets at Tung Chung, an outlet mall with major brands like Coach, Burberry and Kate Spade. One of Lantau's newest attractions is the Tai O heritage hotel, housed in a former colonial police station that dates back to 1902 and located near the Tai O ferry pier.
