Dining on Japanese food for a change

Another early morning, where we are once again greeted with an international breakfast buffet. This one is even bigger than the one I described in Bangkok. Different asian breakfast specialties including, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Western style foods. I once again got to enjoy my noodle bowls. Today, we meet the tour group one last time for a day trip to Lantau Island. Passing through busy Hong Kong, we encounter a place that is green, mountainous and lush on our way to Ngong Ping Village. Once a remote monastery, has been completely rebuilt into a sort of "Disney Buddha Temple theme park" with giant 100 foot Buddha that you can visit inside, Hollywood style temples, tea houses and pagodas. As well, as a shopping village and food court. This turned out to be our first day of rain as well.
