Lantau is the largest island hosting the international airport and the Disneyland. So if you are travelling with your family and kids then this becomes a great way to either start or end your holiday. There are not many stay option, Silvermine Hotel being one of them. Spend time in the amazing Disneyland bringing the child in you back to life. Or visit the Big Buddha, village, Silver Mine bay, Discovery bay, Wisdom path and the beaches. Lantau also provides some breath taking views and trekking options.
You can either stay on the mainland or the island in Hong kong. We chose the island because that's where majority of the attractions and hotels are. Hong kong's hotels are expensive and small, so getting a decent room at a fair price is a challenge. Spend time on the island roaming around the small alleys, tasting local food and bakery and absorbing the vibe of the city. Take the huge multi-level escalator through the city centre to reach the top. You can visit the pier during night for some beautiful views of the city. As the moon rises, head to the Soho district to enjoy the night life.
You can hop around in the trams or taxi or the MTR on the island - all cheap, fast and convenient modes of travel.
