Lantau’s Ngong Ping 360 cable car has been ranked one of the best cable car systems in the world in a list by The Guardian.
The cable car, which transports passengers between Tung Chung and The Big Buddha, uses a 5.7km bi-cable ropeway. Rides last 25 minutes each way and provide amazing views across Lantau Island and the South China Sea.
One of Hong Kong’s most popular tourist attractions, Ngong Ping was placed 10th on the list, just behind Rio de Janeiro’s Sugarloaf mountain. Other Asian cable transport systems to make the top 10 include the Genting Skyway in Malaysia and the Tianmen mountain in China.
