If Mom has a bit of an adventurer’s spirit, then you’ll want to take her to join the Lantau Cultural and Heritage Insight Tour to see the historic Tai O fishing village and century-old Po Lin Monastery. Reserve a glass-bottomed Ngong Ping 360 cable car, which will take you from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping, with sweeping views over the island. On a clear day, it will take your breath away. After that, you can pay a visit to Hong Kong’s Big Buddha, and make friends with some of the local cattle. Then head to Tai O and take in the traditional houses and snacks along the way. There are even boat tours available that will take you out into the water to search for the elusive pink dolphin! For more information about the tour and make your bookings, click here.
