Lantau's Big Buddha is one my favorite site in Hong Kong. Lantau is a large island next to Hong Kong island that also host Hong Kong's airport. The Buddha is on top of the mountain of the island. It can be seen from a distance and from up there you have amazing views. It is also fascinating as it can happen that you are surrounded by the low clouds... In Lantau we also visited the village of Tai O, of which I wrote a post a while ago. Tao O is Chinese fisher village built of stilt houses.
