Three of them, MuiWo, Tai O, and Tung Chung are being developed as new towns. In addition, more than 78.4 square kilometers (30.3 square miles) of the island has been designated as Wild Countryside Park. Tai O, also known as "The Venice of the Orient", is the largest settlement on Lantau Island. Crisscrossing canals run the length and breadth of the small fishing harbor. In addition, homes built on stilts over the water are a common sight here. Tai O was once a garrison town but has now become a peaceful fishing harbor. Salted fish is a local specialty. Tai O was once the largest city on the island. In the 1970s, Tai O started to attract holiday visitors, and today the town is prosperous and busy. You can participate in many outdoor activities in the Wild Countryside Park such as hiking, camping, swimming, and fishing. Or you can have a barbecue in the mountains far from the hustle and bustle of the towns. The most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong are scattered along the southern coast, the area around Cheung Chauisland, and the vicinity of Tai O, which is about 3.2 kilometres (2 miles), --20 minutes by bus--from MuiWo. After one of the most advanced new airports in the world, Hong Kong International Airport, was opened on a man-made island in northern part of Lantau Island in 1998, your coming to Lantau Island becomes more convenient. On Sep 12th, 2005 Hong Kong Disneyland will open to public, after your eyes being delighted in the natural beauty of Lantau Island, you may pay a visit there. The tranquil, natural environment and Hong Kong Disneyland will make Lantau Island a popular spot for not only nature lovers and hikers but who like large entertainment parks as well. Cost : Adult @ USD 70 Per Person Child (03 -11 Years old ) @ USD 50 Per child Duration : 04 Hours Cost Includes : Half day Lantu Tour with Ngong Ping 360 Cable car Ngong Ping Village and Po Lin Monastery Pickup time from Hotel 1100 AM Ngong Ping 360 Hong Kong's newest tourist attraction combines a spectacular 5.7 km cable car journey that takes in an impressive cultural themed village and the Tian Tan Buddha. At the themed village there are a couple of attractions. The Walking with Buddha attraction gives an interesting introduction to Buddha, and has different stages, with headphones giving the narration in a variety of languages. The Monkey's Tail is simply a silent animated movie, with a simple moral. A little trivial overall. Combined tickets can be bought to cover all three attractions. There are about 10 restaurants in the village, serving a variety of food, all a little on the expensive side for what they are. There are some other restaurants in the true village, beyond the themed section. The cable car station is adjacent to the Tung Chung MTR. Note that there are often lengthy queues to go up the mountain, especially on weekends - if the queue extends downstairs, expect a two hour wait. To avoid you can take a bus up the mountain and the cable car back (queues are much shorter, especially if buying the Crystal Cabin). Alternatively, buy a guided tour or the Journey to Enlightenment package, both of which bypass most of the queue for the cheaper tickets Po Lin Monastery Ngong Ping (below the Tian Tan Buddha). The monastery was founded in 1906 by three monks from Jiangsu Province. The main temple building houses three bronze statues representing the Buddha of the past, present and future. It is 25 minutes away by cable car from Tung Chung town centre

About Milford Sound
Milford Sound is the most well-known and most accessible of all the fiords in New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park, a World Heritage Area.  Its 16 kilometre (14 nautical miles) length is lined by sheer rock faces that soar 1, 200 metres (3, 900 ft) or more from the water.  At 1692 metres, the iconic Mitre Peak is a spectacular sight and New Zealand’s most photographed mountain. Milford Sound is in the heart of a rainforest (annual rainfall is 6, 813mm or 268 inches) which creates walls of temporary waterfalls on a wet day receding to just two permanent waterfalls (Lady Bowen Falls and Stirling Falls) in drier conditions. Glorious on a fine day, Milford Sound’s ethereal, moody beauty in the rain is equally spectacular.
Getting There
The journey to Milford Sound is just as spectacular as the destination itself, whether you travel by road or by air. Milford Sound is around 5-6 hours (one-way) from Queenstown and around 3 hours from Te Anau by road
Weather
Milford Sound is one of the wettest places in the world with a mean annual rainfall of 6813mm (268 in). It rains for around a 180 day of the year, with rainfall reaching 250mm (10 in) over a 24 hour period.
The temperature in Milford can vary depending on the season and can go from an average high of around 19C in summer (Dec - Feb) to around 9.5C in winter (Jun - Aug).
Flora & Fauna of the region
Tenuously clinging to the steep rock faces of the fiord, the beech tree canopy towers over a rich green world where ferns, mosses and lichen flourish.  Shallow rooted, this ecosystem depends on heavy rainfall for survival - the same rain which causes massive slips often sending whole tracts of forest crashing into the water below. Native New Zealand birds thrive in this nearly untouched wilderness – tui, bellbirds, kea and even the rare kakapo and takahe. Colonies of New Zealand fur seals and other sea life thrive in the fiord which is home to a marine reserve. Bottlenose dolphins, Fiordland Crested Penguins and little penguins are also resident in the fiords.
The high rainfall has also created a unique underwater environment - as fresh water drains through the lush forests, it becomes stained with tannins to the colour of strong tea. This dark water sits on top of the seawater blocking light and allowing normally deep-sea life to exist in relatively shallow waters. The fiords support the world's biggest population of black coral trees - about seven million colonies, some of them up to 200 years old. They are home also to brachiopods; primitive clam-like animals that have been bypassed by evolution, remaining unchanged in over 300 million years.
History
Milford Sound is believed to have been discovered by the Maori over 1, 000 years ago. They named the sound Piopiotahi after the legend of a single Piopio bird which flew here mourning the death of its partner.
Milford Sound was well known to Maori but not discovered by Europeans until 1812 when Captain John Grono named it Milford Haven after his homeland in Wales. Its name was later changed to Milford Sound by Captain John Lort Stokes.
The fiord’s natural beauty soon became well known. The Mackinnon Pass was discovered in 1888 and soon became part of the Milford Track – now one of the world’s great walks and the Homer Tunnel was developed in 1954 to provide road access to the fiord.
