The Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car is of course, an attraction in itself, providing some of the most beautiful views of Lantau Island and beyond as far as the South China Sea.
The 20-minute ride will take you over some of the island's most beautiful scenery. There are spectacular views of the valleys and greenery of the Lantau Country Park, the reservoirs and the sea, the Chek Lap Kok Airport and the complexes of high-rise buildings just going up in Tung Chung.

The Crystal Cabin, as the name suggests, has a transparent three-layer 5cm glass floor, and it is just simply cool. If you're afraid of heights it might not be your thing, but otherwise, it really is an awesome feeling, and for the kids, it was the highlight of the ride. Here are some images, check it out:

How much more does it cost? The Crystal Cabin is HK50 extra for a round-trip journey. You can consider riding the Crystal Cabin one way and the regular cabin on the return trip.
There is a VIP entrance for the Crystal Cabin and if the line for the regular cabins happens to be too long as it often is in the busy times, riding the Crystal Cabin is definitely an advantage to skip the wait.
Likewise, if you are taking the Ngong Ping Cable Car from the Upper Station at the Village, there are very clear signs to point you in the right direction.
