Serene, scenic and nerve-wracking. That's how I would describe our Ngong Ping 360 cable car experience.
Ngong Ping 360 is one of Hong Kong's must-see attractions. It is an ideal jump-off point to exploring Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It includes an incredible cable car journey and a visit to the themed Ngong Ping Village.
We went to Lantau Island on a Saturday morning to experience Ngong Ping 360. To skip the notoriously long regular ticketing line, I've already pre-booked our tickets through Klook. After redeeming the actual NP360 tickets in the pre-booked counter, we immediately boarded the cable car as there was no queue for the Crystal Cabin that time.
Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car
Visitors can choose between Standard Cable Cars and Crystal Cable Cars. The Standard Cabin is cheaper in price but the Crystal Cabin offers a more exciting experience. As you can see, the Crystal Cabin is equipped with a glass bottom that offers an astonishing bird’s eye view of the sea and lush green mountainside underneath. We went for the crystal cabin and I suggest you go for that one too, for a better view and a more thrilling kind of experience. For those who are afraid of heights, you should give it a try. It is good to get out of your comfort zone once in a while.
The cable car ride lasted for about 25 minutes. That's 25-minute of nerve-wracking ride with views of the sea and awe-inspiring Giant Buddha nestled in the lush mountains of Lantau.
After the 25-minute cable car ride, we were then greeted by the themed Ngong Ping Village. The Ngong Ping Village has a wide array of shopping stalls and eateries.
The Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and Wisdom Path were also a few minutes walk from Ngong Ping Village. Ngong Ping Village hosts the largest bronze statue of Buddha in the World. It is huge. You have to climb 268 steps to reach the Buddha.
Ngong Ping 360 was definitely one of the best experiences we had in Hong Kong. The cable car ride was breathtaking and visually spectacular.

Gardens by the Bay is one vast nature park in Singapore. It is undoubtedly one of my preferred attractions in Singapore.
Mom and I visited Gardens by the Bay last May. The entire place is stunning and well kept. Among its many garden conservatories, my favorites (yes, I have more than one favorite) would be the Flower Dome, the Cloud Forest, and the Supertree Grove.
Enchanting. This word best describes our visit to the Flower Dome conservatory. We were enchanted by a wide assortment of tulip blooms. The Flower Dome showcases flowers from different parts of the world. Exhibitions change depending on the season and theme. Tulipmania was the theme at the time of our visit.

Yes, bike-zipping is not that hard to do. It does not require balancing. You just simply need to pedal your way up to your destination and that's it. Your most prominent obstruction would be fear and apprehension. You must have the guts to do it, else, you will get stuck, not be able to move and enjoy the experience of biking in the air.
Refreshing, fun and surprisingly easy.
These words perfectly sum up our stand up paddleboarding experience in Loboc, Bohol. I can't think of a more suitable way of describing it other than that.

I will just go right out and say that pictures do not give justice on how mind-blowingly beautiful Tumalog Falls in Oslob is. I admit, I underrated Tumalog Falls. I've seen pictures of it online and honestly, it wasn't that appealing. It's very ordinary. But when I finally set foot on the falls, my initial perception shifted 180 degrees and I just couldn't believe my eyes. I was completely blown away.
